The Behavioural Neuroscience Undergraduate Program at Simon Fraser University is the only program of its kind offered to undergraduate students in British Columbia, and one of only a few in Canada. Our program brings the expertise of faculty in the Departments of Psychology, and Biomedical Physiology & Kinesiology (BPK) to provide specialized undergraduate education. Students may pursue a Major or Honours program.
Students are educated in systems and sensorimotor neuroscience, cognitive neuroscience (including attention, learning, and memory), neurological disorders, neuroanatomy, biological rhythms, general physiology and psychology, and research design of behavioural studies.
The undergraduate degree in Behavioural Neuroscience readies students for careers in neuroscience, and provides first-class preparatory training for professional schools (including medicine, physical therapy, or occupational therapy), and advanced graduate degrees in neuroscience, psychology, kinesiology, and physiology.
