What students are saying about our Neuroscience program:

I couldn’t have asked for a better undergraduate experience. Studying neuroscience at Carleton University was challenging, but prepared me well to continue my education in medicine. With interesting courses taught by supportive professors who are top in their fields, this program has been both enjoyable and rewarding. Even outside the classroom, it was easy to get involved in some of the research being conducted at Carleton. If you’re interested in continuing in science, and have an interest in neuroscience, I highly recommend this program!
