Hi Kaylynn,
Some quick research online resulted in these resources

An example from a college giving an overview as well as example of what students majoring in nuerobiology did after graduating

Also check out this job board to see specifically what types of positions are available that are looking for people with neurobiology experience. Many of the positions are research based so neurobiology may be one of those fields where having a graduate degree in addition to an undergrad degree would put you a step above others.

When you get to your college, contact your guidance counselor as well as a few of the neurobiology professors and ask some questions. Since it is a new major that the university is offering they will be likely to want lots of new students coming in and increase interest in the new program. Your school's website may also have a section for the program where they give an overview and explain what neurobiology students do after graduating.

Good luck!
