* While computer programming is not a requirement of the Neuroscience major, students who are interested in NSC research or graduate programs are strongly recommended to take at least one semester of programming such as CSC 161 (Art of Programming), CSC 160 (Engineering Computing), or CSC 171 (Science of Programming).
