Sample Schedule

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.
