Neuroscience BSc (Hons)
School of Life Sciences
Neuroscience is the science of the brain and how it functions - both in healthy and diseased scenarios
Dundee City Campus
Our neuroscience degree explores behavioural neuroscience, including neuro-degenerative disease. It looks at the pharmacology of neuroscience, including anaesthesia and analgesia, the drugs that control consciousness and perception of pain.
These will give you an understanding of how biomedical innovations are explored and developed from initial concept to their application.
You will learn key theories - from molecular level to full body systems - to understand the field as a whole.
Your first two years will cover genetics, cell biology, biological organisation, molecular mechanisms and processes.
You’ll develop practical skills, including laboratory skills, data analysis, and how to design and run experiments. This will prepare you for carrying out projects later on in your course.
You can pick modules that interest you and also transfer to a different life sciences degree if you choose the relevant modules.
Our course curriculum is shaped by the work of our world-leading researchers to make sure you’re learning the latest advances, as well as gaining an understanding of the fundamentals of the field.
Lab sessions throughout your degree will help integrate your knowledge and practical skills, as well as develop strong transferable skills, both in and out of the lab.
