A student with a GPA of at least 2.25 and a major at UNE may minor in Neuroscience with the approval of the assistant academic director. Declarations must occur prior to the completion of the first semester of the junior year. Major programs of study with significant course overlap with Neuroscience minor requirements may be disallowed by the chair. Students declaring a minor in Neuroscience will not be allowed to double-dip credits across the minor and either major or core requirements (unless no other options are provided by the major, minor, or core requirements).

A minimum of 26 hours of approved course credit with a minimum grade of "C-" in each course is required for the minor in Neuroscience as follows:
