Comments about Master of Science in Psychology/Neuroscience - At the institution - Halifax - Nova Scotia

  • Objectives
    The graduate programs in Psychology/Neuroscience are coordinated by the Psychology Department and an interdisciplinary Neuroscience Program Committee with representation from the Departments of Anatomy and Neurobiology, Biochemistry and Molecular Biology, Pharmacology, Physiology and Biophysics, and Psychology. They are also designed as "apprenticeship" programs in which students work closely with a Neuroscience faculty member who has agreed to supervise their research. Emphasis is placed on interdisciplinary research, scholarship and independent thinking rather than on class work.
