    What are assignments like in a neuroscience major?

    I'm interested in neuroscience and I had a look at the course outline (within bachelor of science) and there are a lot of "soft science" subjects in it such as psychology related ones.

    Although psychology isn't my main interest I don't mind learning about it but I am worried that it will require essays as part of the assignments or tests because my essays look like they were written by a dyslexic chimp.

    So what are the assignments/ tests like in neuroscience?

    You will be definitely be writing reports so if you can't write essays then you might have a tough time writing reports (even though they're different styles)

    You have to write essays and reports regardless
    And I'm talking about the neuroscience subjects I've done

    Not related to the original question but you can actually avoid these if you take a physiology major instead of a neuroscience major. The physiology major gives you the same neurobiology subjects with additional anatomy/pharmacology etc. No psychology. It's like neuroscience with a med science/biology focus instead of the mix with psychology.
