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.
For information about research and graduate studies, please contact:

- 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).
Note: once your application has been started, you may email email@example.com 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.
