Further your education
A neuroscience degree offers you the flexibility to pursue graduate studies in a wide range of fields. If you are considering a professional career in neuroscience, you should plan on completing the undergraduate honours degree and continue on to graduate school.
A master of science (MSc) degree usually takes about two years to complete, while a doctor of philosophy (PhD) degree takes an additional three to five years. The doctorate will qualify you to teach in a college or university, to carry out research, and—with an internship—to enter professional practice.
With an undergraduate neuroscience degree, you might also consider further study in any of the following areas:
- medicine (MD)
- dentistry (DDS)
- pharmacy (BScPharm)
- law (JD/LLB)
- clinical psychology
