    Course Summary

    Neuroscience is all about studying the brain and nervous system, and how they lead to different expressions of behaviour among individuals. It is a rapidly expanding discipline and constantly in need of new researchers.

    The Neuroscience program offered by the University of Lethbridge can be taken as a major (resulting in a BSc or as a minor, attached to another program. In addition, if your GPA is sufficiently high, you can upgrade your BSc to a BSc (Honours) by completing the Undergraduate Thesis module. This is an especially good choice if you wish to pursue an MSc or another higher degree, as many Master’s degree programs require Honours or Thesis degrees at the Baccalaureate level. 

    This program will convey the technical and practical skills as well as the overall theoretical understanding you need to excel, as well as a deep understanding of the psychology, physics, chemistry and biology which underlie the study of neuroscience. 

    If you are changing direction after starting in another career area, you will possess valuable work experience and professional awareness. Many employers actively seek candidates with these benefits. Our network of contacts, a dedicated employability service and a reputation in the legal profession mean we also have an outstanding track-record of finding students legal employment.Many employers favour GDL students in an increasingly competitive legal job market. Through studying another degree subject, you will have gained many transferable skills. By taking the conversion route into law, you are showing motivation and determination by choosing law at a later stage than some others. This looks good to employers.
