Program Description:
This program explores the role of the nervous system in regulating physiological processes both on the cellular and molecular levels. It is designed to give you an understanding of the structure and function of the nervous system, and the biology behind different types of clinically relevant psychiatric disorders when different
psychoactive drugs are applied.

The Neuroscience program will allow you to:
  • Gain insight into cutting-edge neuroscience research in Scandinavia through research projects that will allow you to meet experts working directly in neuroscience
  • Access top researchers in and outside of the classroom who will broaden your perspective on developments in neuroscience internationally
  • Travel with your classmates and DIS faculty on course-integrated study tours to Denmark, Southern Sweden, Switzerland, and Southern Germany, and gain exposure to experts and top researchers within the neuroscience field

This program is right for you if you study biology, health science, neuroscience, or a similar discipline. It is designed to ensure you will acquire skills for a future career or graduate degree in the health professions, scientific research, or in the mental health disciplines.
