Master of Science (MSc) in Neuroscience

Overview

A Master of Science (MSc) in Neuroscience can be completed by full-time students in either one or two years.

One-year MSc

The one-year MSc may be right for you if you have already completed four years of Neuroscience study including a research component. You must have:

  • A Bachelor of Science with Honours (BSc(Hons)), or a Postgraduate Diploma in Science (PGDipSci), majoring in Neuroscience
  • A grade average of B+ across all 400-level papers, including the research component
  • Agreement from a neuroscientist to supervise your research

During your master's year, you conduct your own research and present it in a master's thesis.

Two-year MSc

The two-year MSc may be right for you if you have studied Neuroscience for three years. You must have:

  • A Bachelor of Science (BSc) majoring in Neuroscience, or equivalent
  • A grade average of B+ over four 300-level papers required for the Neuroscience major
  • Agreement from a neuroscientist to supervise your research

The first year is similar to a BSc(Hons) or PGDipSci in Neuroscience. It consists of postgraduate papers in Neuroscience, including a paper that prepares you to do research. In your second year, you conduct your own research and write a master's thesis.
