How did you choose your area of study?

I originally wanted to major in Psychology because I was interested in learning why people behave in the way they do. However, I decided to major in Neuroscience instead because it could provide answers on a molecular level. I like the Neuroscience major most because it combines my favorite subjects: psychology, a social science, and biology, a natural science. The interdisciplinary nature and challenging curriculum of this major will prepare me well for my future plans to attend medical school because becoming a physician means having a deep understanding of many rigorous subjects before applying them successfully in daily practice.
