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 120 credit hour Major is suited to students who want to focus on Neuroscience, but wish to have a program that is somewhat less constrained than the Honours program. It provides a four-year survey of
Neuroscience, and is designed for students not anticipating subsequent graduate-level training in Neuroscience or related disciplines. Neuroscience Majors complete a minimum of 45 credit hours in Neuroscience courses above the 1000 level and do not have thesis (or related) requirements.
