Graduate Diploma in Neuroscience

One of the Most Rapidly Expanding Field of Science

In the past decade, neuroscience — the multidisciplinary study of the nervous system — has been one of the most rapidly expanding field of science. In recognition of the recent growth in York University's neuroscience faculty, infrastructure and research, York is now offering a graduate diploma in Neuroscience.

The neuroscience graduate diploma program is not a stand-alone program. Rather, it is taken concurrently with a thesis program from one of our seven-member departments: psychology, philosophy, biology, kinesiology, electric engineering and computer science, physics and philosophy. Thus you need to be admitted for a master's or doctoral degree in one of those departments before you can apply for the additional neuroscience diploma program.

Our Diverse Approach to Neuroscience

Computational modelling

Event-related potentials

Brain imaging (fMRI, PET, MEG)

Animal neurophysiology

Psychophysics

Kinematics

Transcranial magnetic stimulation

Molecular and cellular techniques

Neuroscience is the multidisciplinary study of the nervous system. It ranges from research on molecular and cellular mechanisms in nerve cells and the relationship between the elements of neural systems, to the study of behavior of whole organisms. In the past decade, neuroscience has been one of the most rapidly expanding field of science.

In recognition of the recent growth in York University's neuroscience faculty, infrastructure, and research, York is now offering a graduate diploma in Neuroscience. Current and incoming graduate students will be supervised by faculty members engaged in neuroscience research within the departments of Psychology, Kinesiology and Health Sciences, Philosophy, Physics, EECS and Biology.
