What you will learn

This Biomedical Neuroscience BSc program offered by University of Saskatchewan includes education in many of the major topics in neuroscience. This program includes necessary prerequisite courses for life science professional schools (e.g. medicine, dentistry, pharmacy, nutrition, veterinary medicine, etc.). While this program focuses on neuroscience, it prepares students for graduate studies in many areas of the life sciences.


  • Preparation for professional health science programs and graduate studies: The biomedical neuroscience program provides an excellent foundation in the biomedical sciences for students seeking subsequent admission into professional health science schools such as medicine, dentistry, physical therapy, chiropractic, veterinary medicine and optometry. Biomedical neuroscience program graduates are also well qualified to progress into more advanced biomedical research training at the master's and Ph.D. levels at various academic institutions worldwide.
  • Research and lab positions: A variety of technical positions are available in academia (e.g. universities and colleges), industry (e.g. biotechnology, private research firms, biomedical supply, and pharmaceutical companies), government (e.g. agricultural and food agencies and police forensic laboratories) and the healthcare system (e.g. medical labs).
  • Communications: Biomedical neuroscience studies may lead to a career in technical writing for textbooks and/or government and industry reports.
  • Business: Biomedical neuroscience graduates may obtain sales, consulting or management positions in science-related private sector companies such as pharmaceutical and biomedical supply firms.
