Cognitive Science Degree Programs

We offer majors leading to the baccalaureate of arts and the baccalaureate of science degrees in cognitive science, as well as a cognitive science minor.

Both the BA degree and the BS degree provide a sound grounding in the field of cognitive science through courses in which students explore cognitive concepts, methods of inquiry, and classic intellectual issues.

Moreover, both degrees feature a 12 semester hour "learning agreement" which provides an opportunity for the student to explore some particular aspect of the field in depth, to develop an interest into a wealth of focused knowledge. The BS degree is a strict extension of the BA degree consisting of additional course work in artificial intelligence and psychology. The minor provides a broad introduction to the field and can easily be tailored to nicely complement virtually any major.
