Behaviour, Cognition and Neuroscience

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 biological aspects of psychology and biology relating to the brain and behaviour.

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.
