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.

Best answer:

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.

Good luck!!
