Psychology involves the scientific study of behaviour and experience, including thinking, feeling and action. Neuroscience examines the structures and function of human and animal nervous systems. The Bachelor of Science (BSc) in Psychology and Neuroscience unites these two disciplines to study human behaviour. For example, to understand: how the brain coordinates movement; how memories are formed, maintained and retrieved; how animals learn; why some people crave drugs; or how the brain changes as we age.
The Bachelor of Science (BSc) in Psychology and Neuroscience, offered at our Waterloo campus, provides you with a strong foundation in both psychology and neuroscience, along with knowledge of the biology and genetics of behaviour.
In senior courses, you'll receive hands-on practical experience in cognitive and behavioural neuroscience research, working in small classes with individual faculty members.
