Question by nessa1271: Can I get into a good graduate neuroscience program with a BS in psychology?
I’m debating between double-majoring in Biology and Psychology and just majoring in Psychology.
Answer by Sugar Rush
Yes, as long as you take relevant courses and do well in them, you should be competitive without the double-major.
Although double-majoring in biology is a great option, unless there is a specific option to specialize in studying neurobiology, it would probably strengthen your application more to get research (and clinical) experience. You could do this by working as a research assistant in a lab that does neuroscience/neuropsychology. Also consider taking time between college and graduate school to be in a neuroscience lab. Graduate schools tend to really like students that come with relevant experience.
