Neuroscience
B.Sc. Combined Honours (20.0 credits)

The Department also offers an unofficial combined honours with the Department of Biology. This means the degree title is officially B.Sc. in Neuroscience although there is an equal split of NEUR and BIOL courses, with emphasis on upper-year BIOL courses with labs. Students may choose to complete their honours thesis through the Department of Biology, as opposed to the Department of Neuroscience.

Course Requirements

Using the program requirements of the 2019-2020 Undergraduate Calendar, included below are classes that you can take to complete your Bachelor of Science, Combined Honours program. Deviations from this sample may occur. If you have any questions please contact the undergraduate office for academic advising.
