FAQ’s for PSYO/NESC 2000
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/NESC 2000 at a later date, when you have all the needed requirements.
Is it true I need to do well in PSYO/NESC 2000 to continue in Psychology or Neuroscience?
- No doubt if you are thinking of getting into the Honours program. For some 3000-level courses, you need B or better in 2000
- 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?
- It depends what you mean by “continue”.
- If you passed (D or above) 2000, you can continue in the program, as long as you address the minimal grade requirement for upper level courses (see the prerequisites) and the general requirements at some point (i.e., before it is needed as a prerequisite for more advanced classes, Honours, etc.), but…
- You will need B or better for Honours.
