The purpose of the Educational Neuroscience B.S. Program is to train future educational practitioners, administrators, and researchers in the interdisciplinary field of educational neuroscience.  The rapidly expanding area of behavioral neuroscience has led to new ways of understanding the learning process and the conditions under which learning occurs.  Tomorrow’s educators will need to be well-versed in these new research traditions in order to be better able to design and deliver instruction.
