|Field of Study:||Biology/Biological Sciences, General
|Description:||Honours Biology and Psychology is designed for students with broad interests in the biological and neurosciences who want the freedom to choose the best courses from the Department of Biology and the Department of Psychology, Neuroscience & Behaviour (PNB). The program is uniquely interdisciplinary. Students can merge leading-edge knowledge from both fields, combining molecular biology, development, or ecology with the latest ideas in cognition, learning, or neurophysiology to gain a truly ?big picture? perspective of the living world. The fourth year research thesis may be taken under the supervision of either a Biology or PNB faculty member. Students can gain exciting hands-on experience in topics as diverse as clinical studies of child development, fieldwork in behavioural ecology, cellular neuroscience, or the molecular biology of social learning and memory. Because the program provides students with an elite double-major honours degree in Biology and PNB, it facilitates access to graduate schools in either discipline and to an array of clinical or professional programs (e.g., law, medicine, dental, clinical psychology), and it opens doors to careers in university or industrial research (e.g., pharmaceutics), genetic counselling, or education.
