Acceptance to the major is contingent on an application and then approval by the Major committee. Because the major requires a research component, and/or admittance to enrollment-capped WI courses, it will be necessary to keep major enrollments within manageable bounds. Most significantly, due to the range of requirements, we need to ensure that the students receive careful advising. As part of this application, the student will meet with an appropriate advisor who will carefully review the requirements and oversee the student’s progress.
WUSTL students will be considered for admission to the Cognitive Neuroscience major no sooner than in their third semester (sophomore year). Decisions are based upon the student's application, academic record, and interview with an eligible major advisor.
