Take advantage of our many advising opportunities during your time in the Psychology and Neuroscience program. There are three types of advising available to Dalhousie students: program, academic, and Registrar's office.  

Program Advising

The Department of Psychology and Neuroscience offers students access to advisors and mentors that can assist you with any questions you have prior to and throughout your Neuroscience or Psychology program at Dal.

Program advisors assist in guiding your course selections to meet the requirements of your major or minor. Please note that appointments must be made 24 hrs in advance or the professor may not be available. You can schedule appointments within a three-week timeframe. If you can't find a suitable time, please check back regularly as new slots for upcoming weeks become available. For time-sensitive issues, email
