The brain: The final frontier. Often thought of as the most mysterious organ in the body, the brain holds the key to understanding behaviours as basic as breathing or as complex as thinking.
The Neuroscience MSc program from Carleton University offers considerable research experience from bench top to knowledge dissemination.
Advances in neuroscience research are not only critical to understanding our behaviours but should play a role in finding cures for mental disorders and neurodegenerative disorders like depression or Parkinson’s disease.
Graduates from both of our programs can pursue career opportunities in academia, health, business/industry, education or government. PhD alumni interested in academia can potentially pursue careers as research scientists/postdoctoral fellows or biologists in universities, Health Canada or the National Research Council Canada
