Description:Psychology, Neuroscience & Behaviour is a broad field, with applications in a vast range of professions. Our graduates are well prepared for graduate studies in psychology (both clinical and experimental); for professional studies such as medicine and teaching; for research positions in government, university or industry; and for careers in the health sciences and helping professions. Our program has many electives which can be used towards a minor and/or for fulfilling specific course requirements for graduate and professional programs. Students graduating either the Honours B.A. or Honours B.Sc. degrees are equally qualified.

We also offer Mental Health and Music Cognition specializations. The Mental Health specialization focuses students’ studies on research into mood disorders and includes a practicum placement. The Music Cognition specialization is unique among North America universities, providing students with a double background in cognitive neuroscience and music. It prepares them for interdisciplinary research into the cognitive psychology and cognitive neuroscience of music, as well as applied careers in audiology and music therapy.
