Program Information

School: Dalhousie University
Faculty: Faculty of Science
Degree: Bachelor
Field of Study: Neuroscience
Description: In the last four decades, Neuroscience has emerged as an exciting, interdisciplinary area of research. Neuroscience integrates psychology, cell biology, genetics, biochemistry, physiology, anatomy, and other branches of the life sciences to provide comprehensive insights into the structure and function of the brain. Neuroscience is exceptionally well represented at Dalhousie, with faculty members studying the nervous system at molecular, cellular, and behavioural levels. Dalhousie neuroscientists work in both academic and clinical (i.e., hospital) settings, providing students with opportunities to participate in research projects in a range of specializations.

The Double Major degree program allows students to combine a study of Neuroscience with another subject. The other subject may be from any discipline in the Faculty of Science (other than Psychology), the Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences, the Faculty of Computer Science or the College of Sustainability. Neuroscience may be the primary subject (defined as the subject with the larger number of credits), or the secondary subject. If the primary subject area is from the Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences, the degree granted will be a BA.
