    Are social science grades included in your science GPA?

    what about a social science course that's curriculum is science based? For example, a "Behavioral Neuroscience" course (neuro content) that is listed under the psychology department.

    Thanks.
     
  5. I'd say if it were something like neuroanatomy, or physiological psychology, it'd count, and mine did. But something behavioral probably wouldn't. I have psychopharmacology credits too that counted under BCPM.

    Behavioral Neuroscience should count under science. I took a psychology class "Physiological psychology" and it counted under BCPM.

    If you think it should count and want it to count for bcpm, I think you just have to designate it as such---so maybe put it under bio instead of social science on amcas.
