Student response to a newly approved neuroscience concentration has been mostlypositive since the University faculty voted unanimously to approve iton Monday. “I think [the neuroscience concentration] is a really great idea,” Vivienne Tam ’15 said.
University faculty members voted unanimously on Monday afternoon in favor of creating a new concentration in neuroscience at a faculty meeting. The new concentration could start admitting undergraduates into the department as early as this spring. The University has offered a neuroscience certificate program since 2001, but faculty members proposed establishing a concentration in the field because of greater interest from current and prospective students and the existence of similar neuroscience concentration programs at peer institutions, according to a leaked department proposal dated June 24. There was no previous public announcement of faculty intent to develop a concentration.
The Princeton Neuroscience Institute has drafted a proposal outlining a program of study for a new neuroscience concentration, according to a document obtained by The Daily Princetonian and dated June 24.

The change comes nine years after the founding of the Princeton Neuroscience Institute, an initiative of then-University President Shirley Tilghman, and less than a year after the opening of the new psychology and neuroscience building.
