Neuroscience provides training for students interested in the integrative functioning of the mind and brain. Students are given specific research and course training in their research field and are exposed to broader interdisciplinary research through the Research Seminar in Neuroscience and Applied Cognitive Science. The practicum is a unique feature that provides students with additional specific training in a research laboratory, hospital, government agency, or non-government agency.

We offer a two-year MSc and a four year PhD, both of which involve preparation and defense of a research-based thesis. In addition to courses and thesis research, students attend a weekly research seminar, and complete a practicum placement and a qualifying exam.


These courses are intended as guidelines. Speak to your guidance counsellor to see what courses are offered at your school.
    We encourage applicants with experience in one or more of the fields within Neuroscience, Psychology and Applied Cognitive Science. Students who enter a Master’s will normally have a Bachelor’s or Honours degree in Psychology (or related field).
