Degree Level
Biopsychology, also known as behavioral neuroscience, is the science devoted to studying the relationships between the brain and behavior. This field of study combines a biological perspective of nervous system structure and function with a psychological perspective of actions, thoughts, and emotions. At Viterbo, students will develop the knowledge and skills necessary to critically evaluate a wide range of both human and animal behaviors. Through coursework, internships, and mentored research, Viterbo biopsychology majors leave graduation prepared for careers and/or graduate study in various sciences and health-related fields.
