Choosing a Great Behavioral Neuroscience School for Your Bachelor's Degree
Your choice of behavioral neuroscience for getting your bachelor's degree school matters. This section explores some of the factors we include in our ranking and how much they vary depending on the school you select. Below we explain some of the most important factors to consider before making your choice:
Overall Quality Is a Must
The overall quality of a bachelor's degree school is important to ensure a quality education, not just how well they do in a particular major. To account for this we include a college's overall Best Colleges ranking which itself looks at a combination of different factors like degree completion, educational resources, student body caliber and post-graduation earnings for the school as a whole.
Other Factors We Consider
The metrics below are just some of the other metrics that we use to determine our rankings.
- Major Focus - How much a school focuses on behavioral neuroscience students vs. other majors.
- Major Demand - The number of behavioral neuroscience students who choose to seek a bachelor's degree at the school.
- Educational Resources - How many resources are allocated to students. These resources may include educational expenditures per student, number of students per instructor, and graduation rate among other things.
- Accreditation - Whether a school is regionally accredited and/or accredited by a recognized behavioral neuroscience related body.
Our complete ranking methodology documents in more detail how we consider these factors to identify the best colleges for behavioral neuroscience students working on their bachelor's degree.
