Please note that the Behavioural Neuroscience Major, Honours, and Minor programs will not be admitting new students as of 2022W.

Students interested in neuroscience should apply for the new Undergraduate Program in Neuroscience (UPN). The UPN builds on the strengths of the Behavioural Neuroscience Major, but provides a broader education in neuroscience.  It is possible to receive a BSc Major in Neuroscience with an emphasis in Behavioural and Cognitive Neuroscience.

Beginning in 2022W, UBC’s Faculties of Science, Arts, and Medicine will offer an Undergraduate Program in Neuroscience (UPN) at the UBC Vancouver Campus. This new program brings together research and teaching expertise spanning the three faculties and multiple departments to offer a unique interdisciplinary approach to neuroscience. Graduates from the UPN will be well positioned to apply their unique training to tackle complex problems in healthcare, research, and policy.

For 2022W only: the required courses for entry into the UPN will be the same as for the Behavioural Neuroscience major.
