BSc Neuroscience

Bishop's University
Campus Full time 3 years September 2017 Canada Sherbrooke

Psychology is the science of how we think, feel and behave. It is a field with both broad purpose in enhancing our knowledge of human behaviour, as well as having important applications for the local and wider community. [+]

BScs in Biological & Life Sciences. Psychology is the science of how we think, feel and behave. It is a field with both broad purpose in enhancing our knowledge of human behaviour, as well as having important applications for the local and wider community. Studying Psychology at Bishop’s is being part of a warm, tightly-knit community with many benefits. Some of the things you can expect at Bishop’s: You are not a number As class sizes are relatively small, our students are able to work closely with our friendly, approachable professors. It is a comforting feeling to be known by your name and not your student number when approaching them. We are particularly proud of the quality of our teaching, with six of our faculty members having been recognized with teaching awards. Above all else though we are available for our students and go the extra mile to make sure they get the most out of the Bishop’s experience, and beyond; every year a number of our graduating students go on to Masters and Ph.D. programs across the country and around the world. Research opportunities in important current areas How do our thoughts and feelings affect our experience of pain? Why is music so important to so many people and how does it affect our emotions and actions? Is procrastination bad for your health? Why do some people thrive while living with a chronic illness while others just survive? How does time perspective influence health and well-being? What do we know about the brain that would help us to better understand behavior and the behavior of more at-risk populations? How can we better trace the debilitative effects of concussions? How can we stem the tide of stigmatization towards those faced with mental illness? Why does society marginalize others according to their sexual, ethnic or religious identity? How does being part of a linguistic minority group impact perceived access to healthcare? These are just a few of the important questions in Psychology that faculty members are investigating in their research. In particular, our Department is at the core of the Psychological Health and Well-being research cluster; a theme that has recently been identified as one of the four research priorities of the University. The Psychological Health and Well-being research cluster is a multidisciplinary research group comprised of members from the fields of Social Sciences, Humanities, Natural Sciences, and Business. Their overall objective is to produce and share knowledge regarding how to enhance the psychological health and well-being of individuals and the communities that they live in. New and interesting courses Our size means that not only are we able to offer opportunities in more personalized areas of interest such as in our Practicum course, where advanced students can gain applied experience outside the classroom, but that we can have an evolving program where our professors can bring their expertise from their research into the classroom. Recent additions to the Psychology program include: PSY 298 Zen and the Brain (Dr. Mendrek); This course explores Eastern philosophy, such as meditation and mindfulness, from a neuropsychological perspective. PSY 333a Psychology of Exceptional Development (Dr. Lawford); This experiential learning course is a survey of various kinds of exceptionality in children, including intellectual disabilities, giftedness, and speech and language differences. PSY 442b Practicum (Dr. Charpentier); This course is completely practical and offers experiential learning opportunities. Students spend 6hrs/week under close supervision in one of a number of applied settings. Field placements are possible in hospital and school settings, as well as various community organizations. Life outside the classroom Being part of Bishop’s is to have opportunities to develop fully; to have confidence when communicating your knowledge of your subject and your own ideas, to have a broad range of skills and interests, and to approach life with an open outlook. Throughout the program, we maintain a firm commitment to the core competencies of Psychology; critical thinking and analysis, experimental design and data analysis, and knowledge of both historical theory and current research. Our students also enjoy many extra-curricular activities such as the twice-yearly wine and cheese run by the Undergraduate Psychology Society where faculty members and students get together in a beautiful mansion house in Lennoxville. Where can this lead me? Psychology is a broad field that can lead to a wide array of exciting careers. Our Recent Graduates generally follow one of these three career paths: About a third (often our Honours or Neuroscience graduates) go into graduate studies in various fields of Psychology (e.g. Clinical, Social, Cognitive, Abnormal) or in Neuroscience, Psychoeducation, Orthophony and Audiology, Pharmacology, Education, Optometry, Social Work, Business, Law or Medicine. About a third (often our Applied Psychology graduates) are employed in psychology, health and education related fields and work in schools, community organizations, non-profit organization, CLSCs or hospitals, international aid, prisons, youth services, university or private laboratories etc. About a third either work in the public sector (e.g. government, municipal services etc.) or move towards business, either as entrepreneurs (e.g. education, health, online services, entertainment, retail, etc.) or as employees (e.g. human resources, sales and representation, management, etc.). Courses & Programs We offer a wide array of courses in all areas of Psychology including: personality, physiological psychology, cognition, motivation, child and adult development, social psychology and psychopathology. Additional requirements include the history of psychology, psychological statistics and the methodology of experimental psychology. Students interested in applied psychology may also take courses in clinical and health psychology, in addition to a practicum course that allows for supervised work experience outside the classroom. Newly renovated experimental facilities allow advanced students to perform their own research under the direct, individual supervision of a faculty member. Several professors in the Psychology department have received awards for teaching excellence. Programs Students are initially admitted into a Major program. Excellent students may then be admitted into Honours if they maintain a cumulative average over 75% and good standing (70%) in methodology and stats courses. The Honours program provides the opportunity for the students to conduct their own research under the direct, individual supervision of a faculty member. This is recommended for students planning to apply to graduate school. Québec students entering one of the Psychology programs with a DEC and appropriate background can usually complete either the Major or Honours program in three years. Students entering from Grade 12 will normally require four years. Major or Honours in Neuroscience (B.Sc.) This program focuses on the physiological aspects of Psychology: the workings of the human brain and its relationship to human behavior. It includes a number of physiological psychology, biology and biochemistry courses. The strong science component makes this program an excellent preparation towards graduate school or medicine. Major or Honours in Psychology - Neuroscience Concentration (B.Sc.; 54 and 72 credits) This program focuses on the physiological aspects of Psychology and the brain-behavior relationship. To complete the neuroscience program within three years, Quebec students should enter with a collegial diploma in science (D.E.C.), that includes Mathematics 201-NYA-05, 201-NYB-05, Physics 203-NYA-05, 203-NYB-05, Chemistry 202-NYA-05, 202-NYB-05, and Biology 101-NYA- 05. Students entering from other CEGEP programs or from Grade 12 will be required to complete science prerequisites prior to un- dertaking the neuroscience major and will usually complete the degree in four years. The major includes 39 credits of core courses and 15 credits of Psychology and Science options for a total of 54 credits. The Honours adds an additional 18 credits for a total of 72 credits. Admission into Psychology Programs Students applying on the basis of a completed DEC will be ad- mitted into a three-year program. Students from outside Quebec applying on the basis of an Ontario OSSD or a Grade 12 or equiv- alent will be accepted into a four-year program. Students may normally transfer into a Major or Honours Psy- chology program from another Bishop’s program, provided they have a minimum cumulative average of 65% on at least 24 course credits completed at Bishop’s, or provided they have demonstrat- ed an aptitude for the program by achieving an average of 65% in all program courses attempted (minimum of 12 credits). Prerequisites Note that all prerequisites can be completed at Bishop’s. All our programs include two Introduction to Psychology prereq- uisites (PSY 101 and PSY 102). Our Majors/Honours programs also include an Introductory Biology (BIO 191/BIL 191 or BIO 194) prerequisite. These courses must be completed within the rst three semesters of study. These prerequisites will be waived for students who have completed CEGEP courses in Psychology (Introductory Psychology and two other Psychology courses) and Human Biology. Our psychology – neuroscience program in- cludes additional science prerequisites; these will be waived for CEGEP science students.
