Neuroscience/Dance Double Major

“The opportunity to pursue both dance and neuroscience is what pulled me to CC. The Block Plan was very valuable in that I could study neuroscience from nine until noon and then dance was always a part of my life in the afternoons. Not many other schools will allow you to do this.

My professors’ openness in allowing me to join my two majors was crucial to my success after college. For my thesis, I did movement therapy with a Parkinson’s patient. The experience that I gained doing this hands-on therapy was huge in helping me land a great job out of college.

The doctors I work with now almost exclusively hire liberal arts graduates because we are deeply passionate about our work and have interests outside of neuroscience to keep us going.”
