BEHAVIOUR, COGNITION & NEUROSCIENCE @ UWin
Students graduate with in-demand neuroscience credentials, where UWindsor offers one of few undergraduate neuroscience programs in Canada
Interdisciplinary program across Biology and Psychology where students can study in their area of interest
Telling us your location makes it easier for us to provide accurate admission requirements.
Why do we do what we do? Find out in this nationally recognized program that probes the three areas of BCN (behaviour, cognition and neuroscience) through the study of biology related to the brain and the biological aspects of psychology. If you’re interested in both biology and psychology, this research-based, limited enrolment program with a low faculty-to-student ratio is for you.
Non-thesis Behaviour, Cognition & Neuroscience program option is available as well.
Sample Courses: Intro to Psychology as a Behavioural Science, Principles of Neuroscience,
Biological Diversity, Human Physiology, Developmental Psychology
Career Tracks: Professional school (medicine, pharmacy, dentistry), audiologist,
clinical or research psychologist, neurologist

"The Behaviour, Cognition and Neuroscience program provided me with invaluable academic opportunities. An early integration into research combined with the unremitting support from admirable faculty truly inspired my passion for science and discovery. I have gained so much from this program and will continue to apply my experiences in research and medicine."
