Tips for course choice
Here are a few tips shared by the NSB faculty with the NSB majors who participated in the meetings held in summer 2020.
• Each of the courses required for the NSB major is offered only once in 20/21 (Laboratory in Neuroscience is the only exception). While planning your courses, you should prioritize the required courses. You have a broader selection of elective courses.
• Intense courses are… (well) very intense and demanding. Choosing too many intense courses would make your schedule unmanageable. The advice from professors who taught this type of classes in the past is to take no more than two of them per block.
• While planning your summer courses, we encourage you to consider what courses are offered at Barnard and Columbia and that summer courses may interfere with your summer research.
