Specialization in Cognitive Science

Pre-Approved Graduate Courses in Cognitive Science

For more information on the general Graduate School policies, please visit their website.

One of the requirements for obtaining a Certificate in Cognitive Science is to complete six Cognitive Science courses, at least four outside of the home department. Here is a list of courses that have already been approved by the Cognitive Science Program. However, if you would like to count a course that you do not see on this list, simply contact the Director of Graduate Studies, Dr. Sid Horton.

Please note that although these courses have been approved by the Program, they are not necessarily approved for graduate credit (and therefore may not count toward the certificate or other TGS requirements). Students are responsible for checking in CAESAR to verify their Graduate School approval.
