Minor in Cognitive Science

Cognitive science is the scientific study of the mind with the goal of understanding the nature of thought. Students learn the ways in which converging sources of evidence may be integrated to discover the mechanisms underlying the complex adaptive properties of human cognition. The minor can augment a major course of study by adding a broader perspective than one particular discipline can offer.

 The minor in cognitive science broadens the academic background of students majoring in related fields. The goal is to provide students with the methods and foundations for understanding cognitive issues in an interdisciplinary framework.
