FAQ’s for PSYO 2000 and NESC 2007
Can I get in (assuming I am a Dalhousie student)?
If you answer “no” to any of the questions below, I am afraid you can’t:
- Do you have “Psychology” or “Neuroscience” declared as your Major?
- Do you have B- or better in both sections of Introductory Psychology & Neuroscience (PSYO 1011/1012 or PSYO 1021/1022)? Alternatively, DISP (also with a grade of B- or better).
I am missing one or more of the requirements, what can I do?
- Declare Psychology or Neuroscience as your Major.
- Re-take the section or sections of Intro that you scored below B-.
- Take PSYO–2000 or NESC–2007 at a later date, when you have all the needed requirements.
NESC 2007 is full, it is already September, what can I do?
- Take PSYO 2000. It is actually equivalent to NESC 2007.
Is it true I need to do well in PSYO 2000 to continue in Psychology or NESC 2007 to continue in Neuroscience?
- No doubt if you are thinking of getting into the Honours program. For some 3000-level courses, you need B- or B or better in PSYO 2000 or NESC 2007 (This is not unique to Dalhousie. The main research method course in most psychology/neuroscience programs is a crucial requirement to obtain a degree in Psychology or Neuroscience).
Do I need B or better to continue with my psychology or neuroscience courses?
- No. If you passed PSYO 2000 or NESC 2007, you can continue, as long as you address the minimal grade requirement at some point (i.e., before it is needed as a prerequisite for more advanced classes, Honours, etc.).
