1 A Student s Guide To Neuroscience Courses 2015 This Guide is intended for the use of students who are interested in taking a 20-Credit BSc degree with a Major or an Honours in Neuroscience. Enrolment Limitations Potential Neuroscience students should note that there are enrolment limitations on the number of students that can be accepted into these programs in any given year. Passing Introduction to Psychology and Neuroscience or Biology courses with the required grade of B- does not guarantee a place in the Major or Honours program. Students are advised to register for courses as early as possible during the registration period to secure a space within the program. Waitlists Waitlists for most Psychology courses can be accessed through Web Registration. Students will be notified by if they have been given Permission to Register from a waitlist. Students have 3 business days to register----after which they will be removed from the waitlist. Therefore, it is important that students regularly check their and/or web registration status over the summer months, as Permissions are time sensitive. Grade Requirements The minimum requirement to take undergraduate programs in Neuroscience is a grade of B- in two half-credit Introduction to Psychology and Neuroscience courses or two introductory Biology courses or, alternatively, a grade of B- in either the Psychology or Biology components of the Integrated Science Program. The Table of Contents for this Guide are inside. 1

4 I. Degree Programmes 20-Credit BA or BSc with Honours in Neuroscience University Requirements: Admission to the Honours programme requires approval of both the Psychology Department and the Registrar. Students must obtain an application to enter the Honours program from the Registrar, and usually apply in January of their third year of study. Students taking an Honours degree in Neuroscience cannot use cross-listed Psychology courses as electives. 1. Four years 21 full credits are required. All credits must be from the College of Arts and Science (except for electives described in the Academic Calendar). 2. Students normally complete within their first 10 credits one full credit, or 2 half credits, in each of the three subject groupings specified in the Academic Calendar (Languages and Humanities, Social Sciences, Life Sciences and Physical Sciences). 3. All BA and BSc. students must complete one full credit in Mathematics (not MATH 1001, 1002, 1003, 1110, 1115 OR 1120). 4. After the first year, at least 9, and no more than 11 full credits in Neuroscience (beyond the introductory level) must be taken. A grade of C or better must be obtained in all Neuroscience credits. 5. After completing the 5 first-year credits, BA students must take at least 2 full credits in a single subject other than Neuroscience and at least 1 full credit in a third different subject. A minimum grade of C is required in the credits taken. BSc students are required to take 4-6 full credits in subjects other than Psychology and Neuroscience. 6. In the fourth year, Honours students receive a 21st grade (the Honours Qualifying Examination) based on the quality of the Honours thesis. This is a Pass/Fail grade. 7. Consult sections on Honours programs in the Academic Calendar, for additional details. Departmental Requirements: Students interested in taking an Honours degree in Neuroscience should follow the course sequence specified for Honours students. They should consult with an honours advisor in January of their third year and complete departmental application forms. Admissions to Honours in January will require a grade of B or better in NESC 2007 and an A- average in the last six completed Neuroscience half credits. Applications may be delayed until the end of the third year, in which case, a grade of B or better in NESC 2007 and an A-average in the last nine completed Neuroscience half credits will be required. Potential Honours students should try to locate a thesis advisor and begin laying the ground work for their thesis research (e.g., background reading, acquiring laboratory methodology) as early as possible in their third year. A detailed description of the Honours application process may be found on the departmental website: psychandneuro. 4

13 II. Certificate in Animal Behaviour Neuroscience Student's Guide The certificate program is a collaborative effort of both the Biology and Psychology departments. It provides students an opportunity to take, within their B.A. or B.Sc. Honours or Major program, a set of courses and a research project that will accord them an animal behavior specialization. Completion of the Certificate will be noted at convocation and shown on a student s transcript. Note: It is the responsibility of students in the Certificate Program to complete the course sequence specified, and to provide the Certificate Coordinator with confirmation that the necessary courses have been taken, by the end of the examination period in their final year of study. Certificate requirements: 1. A minimum grade of a B- is required in four mandatory courses: NESC/PSYO Animal Behaviour PSYO Statistical Methods I or STAT Statistical Methods for Data Analysis and Inference BIOL Behavioral Ecology or BIOL Field Methods in Animal Behaviour or NESC/PSYO Measuring Behaviour 2. A grade of B- in two full credits of elective courses chosen from the following list. One of the two-full credits must be at the 3000/4000 level Level ANSC Companion Animal Behaviour NESC/PSYO Learning NESC/PSYO Systems Neuroscience 3000 Level BIOL Entomology BIOL Ornithology BIOL Ecology and Evolution of Fishes BIOL Field Studies of Marine Mammals MARI Field Studies of Marine Mammals NESC/PSYO Independent Research in Modern Psychology (Animal Behaviour topic) NESC/PSYO Directed Research Project in Psychology (Animal Behaviour topic) NESC/PSYO Neurobiology and Learning NESC/PSYO Laboratory Methods of Learning and Conditioning NESC/PSYO Advanced Animal Behaviour (subject to approval) NESC/PSYO Neuroethology NESC/PSYO Hormones and Behaviour NESC/PSYO Psychoneuroimmunology/Ecological Immunology NESC/PSYO Genes, Brain and Behaviour 13

A grade of B- in one half credit or more of independent research in Animal Behaviour. The research topic must be pre-approved by the Certificate Coordinator prior to the start of their research course (i.e. NESC/PSYO , NESC/PSYO , NESC/PSYO , BIOL , BIOL , BIOL , or BIOL ). Honours students are encouraged to complete their Honours thesis on a topic in Animal Behaviour to fulfill this requirement. Students are also encouraged to further develop their study design and analysis skills by taking additional courses such as BIOL (Design of Biological Experiments) or BIOL (Analysis of Biological data). 4. Enrollment in the Certificate in Animal Behaviour program should be undertaken by students in their third or fourth year of studies when they are seeking approval of the research topic by the Certificate Coordinator. The Certificate Coordinator will be named by the Animal Behaviour Working Group (S. Adamo, S. Gadbois, A. Horn, M. Leonard, C. Staicer). III. Grade Requirements for Neuroscience honours programs Grades for students in the Honours program: A cumulative GPA 3.00 (B) is required to graduate. No grades less than a C (no C- or D grades) are acceptable in required Neuroscience Honours program courses. An A- is required for a first-course degree. Grades for students in Major Programs: A cumulative GPA of 2.0 ( C ) is required to graduate. IV. Transfer Students Transfer credits will be granted for credits from other universities if they are comparable to Dalhousie credits. Consult the Registrar s Office (p. 31, Section 7) to determine what credits can be transferred and see Dr. B. Earhard if departmental information is required. V. What is the Grading System? In each course the work requirements and the examination systems differ. You will be told how you will be graded in each course during the first week of the course. 14

15 VI. Departmental Fees and Charges The Psychology Department does not levy any fees for laboratory instruction or materials used in laboratories. Some instructors do, however, provide laboratory manuals or copied course notes for which students are expected to pay as they would for textbooks in any course. The Faculty of Science does levy an Auxiliary Fee for all laboratory or skills courses; this fee is paid at the time tuition fees are paid. VII. Courses Offered in Neuroscience Because of staff changes, sabbatical leaves, and University cut-backs not every course listed in the University Calendar can be offered every year. Section VIII gives the title of each course, the course format, credit, name of instructor(s), and prerequisites. The 4000-level seminars are intended for fourth-year Honours students, but third-year Honours students may enroll with the permission of the professor. VIII. Prerequisites A full credit of Introduction to Psychology and Neurosciences courses (PSYO / or PSYO / ) is the prerequisite for all 2000-level courses except for NESC 2160, 2170 and 2470 (prerequisite: BIOL / or BIOL / , and/or PSYO / or PSYO / or SCIE 1502X/Y.21). SCIE 1501X/Y.27, 1503X/Y.21, 1504X/Y.27, or 1510X/Y.33 is the prerequisite for students in the Dalhousie Integrated Science Program (DISP). A minimum grade of B- is required in all of the above courses for admission into NESC courses numbered 2000 and above. 15
