Program Overview

Discover a career in psychology.

At the NSLC on Psychology & Neuroscience, you’ll dive into the science of the mind as you compare brain scans, examine cranial anatomy, and learn to diagnose and treat psychological disorders.

I made so many friends and I learned so much about psychology and neuroscience. The big takeaway though was throwing myself out there and doing something new.
