Graduate Certificate Application Process

 

The Graduate Certificate in Cognitive Science is open to graduate students enrolled in a graduate degree program at the University of Connecticut. We encourage students to apply to the program around the second year of your home program – after you’ve had a chance to sink in to the home department, and while there’s still plenty of time to participate in activities of the Cognitive Science program.

Applications should be submitted by Nov. 1 for review at the Cognitive Science Steering Committee’s November meeting; or by Apr. 1 for review at the April meeting.

After our review process, a letter indicating your application status will be sent to applicants and cc’d to the two faculty members who supplied supporting letters.

Application Requirements

  • A CV in the style of your home field.
  • A brief personal statement regarding your interest in cognitive science and the UConn Cognitive Science program (1 page).
  • A brief letter signed by your major advisor supporting the application.
  • A second short letter supporting the application. This second letter should come from an appropriate departmental administrator – preferably one who is familiar with your work, and someone other than your major advisor (list of participating Department heads, Directors of Graduate Studies, and Division Heads).

Apply here.

Note: once your application has been started, you may email gradadmissions@uconn.edu to have the application fee waived.

Transcripts will be provided by the Graduate School from your previous application file and current records.

A GPA of 3.0 is required by the Graduate School.
