Program vs. Faculty Regulations

Regulations governing programs in Neuroscience are a combination of general Faculty of Science regulations and the additional program specific regulations listed below. It is essential for students to be familiar with both sets of regulations. It is helpful to read Section 3 (Faculty Regulations) first.

Students should consult Academic Requirements in their Student Centre periodically to ensure that requirements are being met.

Enrolment Limitations

Enrolment Limitations in Program

The number of spaces in Neuroscience program is limited and entry into this program is competitive.

Enrolment Limitations in Courses

In the first instance, enrolment in Neuroscience courses is available to Neuroscience students in satisfactory standing who meet the prerequisite(s). Depending on space availability, other students who are in satisfactory standing and meet the prerequisite(s) may register in a course. Consult the Schedule Builder in the Student Centre for details regarding enrolment in these courses.

Ethics in Neuroscience

Studies in Neuroscience involve the use of living and dead organisms. Students taking laboratory- and field-based courses in this discipline can expect involvement with and experimentation on such materials. Students perform dissections on dead or preserved organisms in some courses. In particular courses, students experiment on living organisms, their tissues, cells, or molecules. Sometimes field work requires students to collect a variety of living materials by many methods, including humane trapping.

All work on humans and other animals conforms to the Helsinki Declaration and to the regulations of the Canadian Council on Animal Care. The Program strives for the highest ethical standards consistent with stewardship of the environment for organisms whose use is not governed by statutory authority. Individuals contemplating taking courses in the Neuroscience program should ensure that they have fully considered these issues before enrolling. Students are advised to discuss any concern they might have with the Program Director.
