The Cognitive Science Program offers an undergraduate major, an undergraduate minor, and a graduate certificate (beginning in 2011-12).
The undergraduate major in cognitive science is intended to prepare students for graduate training in cognitive science and related disciplines or to work in the information sciences. 40 credits at the 2000-level or above are required, including courses from four different academic departments. Although 1000-level courses do not count toward the major, several provide excellent preparation, including CSE 1102, Ling 1010, Phil 1101, or Psych 1100.
The undergraduate minor in cognitive science is perfect for students majoring in one of the affiliated disciplines who wish to broaden their experience with coursework in other cognitive science fields. 15 credits at the 2000-level or above are required, with no more than 6 credits coming from coursework in any one department.
The graduate certificate provides an advanced course of study in cognitive science. The certificate program is intended for students already enrolled in a graduate degree program at the University of Connecticut.
