Millsaps College

Introduction
AACSB Accredited
e

Millsaps was founded in 1890 by the Methodist Church. The philanthropy of Major Reuben Webster Millsaps and other Methodist leaders in Mississippi enabled the College to open two years later on what was then the outskirts of Jackson. The beginnings were modest: two buildings, 149 students and five instructors.

More than a century later, Millsaps has an enrollment of approximately 1,100 students and a faculty and staff of more than 300. The beautiful 100-acre campus is now located in the heart of downtown Jackson. Recognized by several national organizations, the College continues to offer a comprehensive liberal arts education to students from more than 27 states and 24 countries.

MSc in Neuroscience and Cognitive Studies Of all the enormous variety of combinations of matter in the universe, the only combination we know of that is conscious - that feels, thinks, wonders, remembers, judges, hopes, dreams, calculates, and desires - is the brain. This in itself is a remarkable mystery. The human brain is approximately 75% water, 10% fat, 8% protein, and a few percentage points of carbohydrates and inorganic salts. Taken separately, none of these things think. Put together in a mass, still no thinking. But organize the material in the right way...and it wakes up. With approximately 100 billion neurons and taking up only 2% of the average person's body weight, the brain manages to control the vast majority of a person's thought and behavior, making us who we are. The study of the brain then is the study of who we are, what we are, and how we work. Neuroscience and Cognitive Studies is the interdisciplinary field where all these questions come together. From physiological research into neurotransmitter activity, to psychological research into language acquisition and memory, to philosophical research into the nature of consciousness and matter, the questions regarding the brain are countless and pose one of the most exciting and vigorous areas of academic research.
