There are many courses in and across the Departments of Psychology, Kinesiology and Health Sciences, and Biology with strong neuroscience content at the graduate and undergraduate level. These courses are not requirements or pre-requisites for acceptance into the Neuroscience Diploma program; however, they are available for students within the Neuroscience Diploma Program and for students who may wish to take the program in the future.

The following is a partial list from the departments of Psychology, Biology, and Kinesiology and Health Sciences. This is not a complete list. There may be other courses at this time from these and other departments that are also relevant.
