Behavioral Neuroscience is an interdisciplinary area of study that spans the fields of Psychology and Biology. The emphasis of this program of study is on the biological bases of human and animal behavior, which include the study of neural functioning at the molecular, cellular, and neuroanatomical systems level. Designed to include course work in psychology, biology, mathematics, and chemistry, the student is provided with a multidisciplinary foundation for understanding how behavior and thought processes are driven by neurophysiology, neuroanatomy, psychopharmacology, and genetics.
Today there is an explosion of opportunity in the world of sports media. PBA is creating a program to put graduates in position to achieve in that world.
