CORE COURSE OPTIONS 

Cognitive Neuroscience of Consciousness + Lab 
Fall/Spring, 6 Credits (3-Credit Course + 3-Credit Lab) 
Despite decades of scientific research and centuries of philosophical analysis, consciousness remains one of the greatest scientific challenges of our time. What is consciousness and which brain mechanisms shape the unique sense of self, implicit in all our thoughts and perceptions? How can we transform the subjectivity of human experience to an objective topic of research? Through the lenses of behavioral and cognitive neuroscience, we explore both conceptual and methodological perspectives of relevance to the study of human consciousness. We critically analyze the obstacles and challenges inherent to the study of consciousness. 
Week-Long Study Tour: Bologna-Florence
Core Course Week: Study tour to Western Denmark + a two-day seminar in Copenhagen 
Prerequisites: One course in neuroscience, physiological psychology, biological psychology, or cognitive psychology at university level.
Corequisite: Cognitive Neuroscience of Consciousness Research Lab 

Psychopharmacology: Substances and the Brain 
Fall/Spring, 3 Credits

For Gustavus Adolphus students: DIS uses US semester credits. Each GAC unit = 4 US semester credits. Thus, most DIS courses, which are worth 3 US semester credits each, are worth 0.75 GAC units. Be sure to discuss the irregular unit totals with your advisors as you select courses.
