BBB majors are encouraged to take BBB 109, Introduction to Brain and Behavior, during their freshman year. There are no pre-requisites for BBB 109 but it is required that students complete the class before moving on to additional BBB coursework. Students considering majors in BBB, Biology, Psychology, Anthropology, Criminology, Cognitive Science, Health and Societies or Visual Studies should be aware that BBB 109 may be counted towards each of those majors, making it an ideal course for freshmen who are still considering a variety of majors. Additionally, BBB 109 fulfills the Living World Sector requirement.

*Students are encouraged to complete their 200-level courses in Behavioral and Cognitive Neuroscience during their sophomore year. It should be noted that each course is not offered every semester. Students should choose their Behavioral and Cognitive Neuroscience courses based on content and adjust their schedules accordingly.
#BBB 400-level courses are generally each offered during only one semester of each academic year. Therefore, students should choose a 400-level elective that complements their independent research and adjust their schedules to accommodate the chosen seminar course.
