Question by : Is it hard to switch majors from different subject areas?
Hey there, my intended major in college, which I start the coming fall, is Political Science. I don’t know if I am going to drop it, but I want to include neuroscience. They are both part of the Liberal Arts and Sciences College in my university. So is it hard to switch or add majors from different subject areas or no? I have taken AP Bio, AP Gov, AP Calc, AP English Lang, and AP World History by the way.

No it is not hard..but depending on how many hours you have already put in I wouldn’t suggest it.

I switched from being a nurse to a teacher and all of my classes I took towards nursing didn’t help me at all towards a teaching degree so now I am very much behind in college…it added another year and a half onto my graduation date.

Not all colleges offer neuroscience, but no colleges offer a neurosurgery major. Major in anything and take the premed classes in bio, chem, physics, math, and English. Keep your college GPA well over 3.5 and do very well on the MCATs. Med school is another 4 years after that, followed by 5 years of general surgical residency, followed by 5 years of fellowship in neurosurgery. This will be at 4 different schools/hospitals so you can start at any 4-year college or university.

Question by bridgetdamidgett: Why is a computer science class required for some neuroscience majors?
I don’t exactly understand how the two are related.

Best answer:

Answer by eri
When science majors require computer science, they’re usually expecting you to learn how to program. Knowing how to program in some computer language (C++, Perl, etc) can allow you to model systems, work with large data sets, run statistical tests, reduce and analyze data, and much more. It’s often recommended for any science major to take a programming class.

Question by Leslie R: How is the chemistry for nursing and allied health majors different than the chemistry for science majors?
I began college as a biology major. I took chemistry my first semester in college, it was extermly diffucult. Even the brightest kids in the class struggled through it. Average test scores scores for the class rarley left the low C range.
Recently I decided to go into nursing, of course chemistry is required for that major also. Im signed on to take it this spring. Wll it be any easier, or just different subject matter???

Best answer:

Answer by Leon D
It will probably be more practical, and less theory. Not to say that you won’t have to learn what a covalent bond is or whatever, but the new chemistry course should talk more about interactions, suspensions, measurement, etc.

Question by ruby: Do neuroscience/cognitive science majors require a master’s or doctorate’s degree to start a career?
It seems that a lot of neuroscience and cognitive science majors choose to pursue their master’s or doctorate’s after completing their undergraduate studies, but is this necessary to start out in the workforce? Are there any realistic careers that are attainable with just a bachelor’s in either of these majors? Please and thank you!

Best answer:

Answer by Elsie K
just a bachelor’s degree in anything (except engineering, that is) is not sufficient to make a comfortable 5/6 figure salary

you can be a counselor though, maybe a researcher

Question by KBSON: I am working on 2 majors Computer Science and Physics would a tattoo hurt job chances at particle research?
I would like to go into particle research, but i didn’t know if getting a tattoo would be frowned upon based on the fact that the pigments in the ink are unknown and all the magnets and equipment you are working with. Also would have a tattoo hurt my job at even a place like Microsoft if the particle research didn’t turn out? I assume that most people in these fields wouldn’t have tattoos but i was just wondering.

Best answer:

Answer by G
A reputable parlor will know the content of the pigments; go there ahead of time and do some research to see if it will really be a problem.

As for your career- you might be surprised at the types of folks who rock ink. Though it’d certainly be preferable to get it in a place that won’t be exposed during a normal workday. Now if you’re going for the Tyson style Maori face tat or the ‘vato’ tear drops, that’s a whole ‘nother story…
