Careers & Opportunities

Potential Careers

The neuroscience major prepares students for professional programs in health science (medical, physiotherapy, pharmacy, veterinary medicine, nursing), post-graduate degrees in neuroscience research, and provides a strong foundation for students wishing to pursue careers in the pharmaceutical and biotechnology industries, public health, teaching, and scientific publishing & journalism.

Given that this is a relatively new program we are just beginning to collect some information from students about their interests and their ideal careers. We find that many students are not familiar with the potential career options, and it is our goal to help them find ways to network and build a competitive resume for any carrer path. The Neuroscience Program at UoG not only prepares students for future graduate studies but also for medical, veterinary, physiotherapy and many other professional schools; the breadth of knowledge obtained in this program is an asset to these career paths which require multiple streams of knowledge. Here are some examples of neuroscience-related careers
