Our interdisciplinary program integrates methods and approaches from linguistics, psychology, philosophy, neuroscience, and computer science, to study thought and behavior. Our faculty have highly diverse research interests, and serve as graduate advisors, committee members, and collaborators.
One of the signature groups on our campus, Cognitive Science offers B.A. and B.S. degrees, and a research-intensive Ph.D. program in Cognitive and Information Sciences. Specialties are computational modeling, cognitive engineering, high-level cognition, language and communication, perception and action, and philosophy of cognitive science. We welcome applications from students at the undergraduate and graduate levels.
Faculty and students meet regularly for the Mind, Technology, and Society seminar which hosts talks from a diverse range of visiting researchers. Click here to see the Spring 2013 schedule and watch videos of recent speakers.
