Project Title: Building a Brain on Campus
Project Abstract:

The goal of this project was to create the framework for a potential neuroscience major. I was able to research four institutions; Hamilton, Ohio Wesleyan, Drew, and Earlham – 4 year institutions, private, and with fewer than 2000 students – as well as Middlebury as a potential option for study abroad. These five schools were analyzed and their basic information as well as neuroscience course curricula was examined. Information gleaned from this research was used to create a potential curriculum for a major at Green Mountain College. Additionally, current students were polled in regards to their interest in studying neuroscience at the college.

Future steps:

  1. Poll all current studies about interest in neuroscience
  2. Poll prospective students
  3. Poll alumni
  4. Research more institutions to gain more representative data when creating a curriculum
  5. Create a cost-benefit analysis
