Bachelor of Science (Honours) in Behaviour, Cognition and Neuroscience

Neuroscience is a strong and growing field that strives to understand brain function at the molecular, behavioural and cognitive levels.

The Behaviour, Cognition and Neuroscience program combines the study of the biological aspects of psychology and biology relating to the brain and behaviour with research-based undergraduate courses.

Program Description
Behaviour, Cognition and Neuroscience is an interdisciplinary program designed for students interested in carrying out research in biology and psychology as part of their undergraduate academic training.
Along with taking regular courses with students in the Faculty of Science and the Faculty of Arts, Humanities and Social Sciences, you will also take directed research-based courses with one or more faculty.
Our students have the flexibility to design programs that meet the admission requirements of many professional programs. Graduates receive a Bachelor of Science degree upon graduation.

Minimum Admission Average: 70%

Secondary average: 70%*

ENG4U, MHF4U, SCH4U and SBI4U required. MCV4U is strongly recommended. SPH4U is recommended.

*Science second average is the average of all science and math courses.

Experiential Learning
Unlike many other universities, BCN undergraduate students at UWindsor are given the opportunity to gain practical, hands-on laboratory and field experience beginning in the first year of study.
This program involves directed, research-based courses with one or more faculty members. Students are required to complete a thesis in their fourth year.

Demand for neuroscientists in the corporate, academic and health professions is increasing:
