MAJOR PROGRAM IN NEUROSCIENCE (SCIENCE)

Enrolment Requirements

Enrolment in the Program is limited. Students may apply after completing a minimum of 4.0 credits including 1.0 credit in each of biology, chemistry and psychology. Admission will be based on the cumulative GPA, with 2.0 or higher guaranteeing admission to the Major Program. Students with lower CGPAs will be considered to the extent that laboratory spaces are available. The minimum CGPA used to admit these students will be determined in May (after the Winter session) and August (after the Summer session). Application for admission will be made to the Office of the Registrar through ACORN, in April/May and July/August.

Program Requirements
The Program requires completion of 8.0 credits. Students who wish to combine the Major Program in Neuroscience with the Major in Biology or the Major in Mental Health Studies or the Major in Psychology are advised that they must present 12.0 credits to receive certification of the completion of both programs. Consultation with the respective Program Supervisors in the selection of credits is recommended.
