For Current Students

Study Abroad

Are you curious about how to juggle NSBH major requirements at a study abroad location? Several NSBH students from the Class of 2019 provided input about their study abroad experiences, both during a semester and during a summer, and how their location worked with the major. The guide includes comments about students' experiences, as well as students' emails for further questions. To access the “NSBH Study Abroad Guide,” please contact Bailey Jaeger

Lab Shadowing & Mentorship

The Neuroscience & Behavior major lab shadowing project aims to introduce underclassmen to research at ND. Upperclassmen, who have worked in various biological, chemical, cognitive, computational, and other scientific labs, are paired with interested underclassmen. The shadowee is then exposed to the works of the lab they've shown interest in and is able to get a peak at the daily activities of the lab. This project encourages curiosity from underclassmen and facilitates a more open conversation regarding on-campus research for all grade levels.

Nu Rho Psi Honors Society

In 2018, Notre Dame obtained membership in the National Honors Society in Neuroscience (Nu Rho Psi). Benefits of membership include networking, research collaboration, research travel awards and grants, as well as the membership certificates, lapel pins, and honors cords provided upon induction. Current seniors who meet the following qualifications may apply to Nu Rho Psi:

  • Major, minor, or other emphasis in Neuroscience
  • Completion of at least 9 semester hours of Neuroscience-specific courses (NSBH Core Courses required within this credit count)
  • Undergraduate cumulative GPA of 3.2 and a minimum GPA of 3.5 in Neuroscience-specific courses

Senior Leadership Committee

The Senior Leadership Committee (SLC) is comprised of six NSBH majors from the Class of 2022. They strive to make the NSBH major the best it can be, and they are here to help you in any way they can. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact them!
