For students registered in the B.Sc. Behavioural Neuroscience program, a maximum of 6 credits of Psychology courses can be used towards the Faculty of Science Arts requirement (http://www.calendar.ubc.ca/vancouver/proof/edit/index.cfm?tree=12,215,410,1464). In addition to Psychology 348 and 448, all Psychology courses numbered 60 to 89 in the last two digits have Science credit. Listed below are courses in which there is sufficient overlap that credit may be obtained for only one course in each pair. However, it does not necessarily follow that the paired courses are equivalent: PSYC 304, 360, PSYC 217, 366, PSYC 218, 366. Students with fewer than 36 previous credits may not take 300-level courses. Not every course is offered every year. For current listings, consult the departmental website at www.psych.ubc.ca.
