Honours Specialization BSc Developmental Cognitive Neuroscience
NOTICE: Effective September 2018, the Honours Specialization in Developmental Cognitive Neuroscience BA module will be withdrawn from the academic calendar and will be replaced with an Honours Specialization in Developmental Cognitive Neuroscience BSC.
If you are enrolled in the BA version of this module at that time, you may complete the requirements and graduate with an Honours Specialization DCN BA.
If you're thinking of switching into the Honours Specialization DCN BSC module and would like advice on how to do so, please contact Psychology's Academic Counsellor (firstname.lastname@example.org).

You are responsible for the accuracy and completeness of your program.
NOTE: You need at least 2.0 Science/Basic Med Science courses at the 2100 and above level – 1.0 is within this Psychology module, and the other 1.0 can be done as an elective course or as part of another module. In other words, in order to satisfy graduation requirements for an Honors Bachelor of Science-DCN degree, students are required to take, outside of and in addition to the 1.0 Science/Basic Med Science course that is part of the Psychology Honors Specialization B.Sc.-DCN module, an additional 1.0 Science/Basic Med Science course at the 2100 level or above. Again, you need at least 2.0 Science/Basic Med Science courses at the 2100 and above level – 1.0 is within this Psychology module, and the other 1.0 can be done as an elective course or as part of another module.
NOTE: To fulfill the B.Sc. requirements within the Honours Specialization in Psychology - B.Sc.-DCN module, 6.0 of the Psychology courses must be selected from the following list:
NOTE: No more than 14.0 courses in one subject may be counted among the 20.0 successfully completed courses used to fulfill graduation requirements. If taking more than 10.0 courses in Psychology (including the first year Psych 1000), students need to consider the impact this may have on their plans for a major or minor in other subject areas.
NOTE: The Honours programs in Psychology have limited enrolment. In cases where the number of applicants exceeds the number of available spaces, entry into the program will be competitive; students who meet the minimum requirements may be refused admission.
Please note that this is the Psychology component of your degree only. For information on complete degree requirements, please refer to the current Western Academic Calendar.
All degrees require 1.0 Social Science course (A), 1.0 Arts & Humanities course (B), 1.0 Science course (C) and 2.0 essay courses.
