About the Cognitive Science Program
The Cognitive Science Program’s mission is to provide interdisciplinary, high-quality training to undergraduate and graduate students in the science of the human mind that prepares students to tackle global and multicultural challenges.
Cognitive science is the study of how intelligent beings (including people, animals, and machines) perceive, act, know, and think.
It explores the process and content of thought as observed in individuals, distributed through communities, manifested in the structure and meaning of language, modeled by algorithms, and contemplated by philosophies of mind.
Its models are formulated using concepts drawn from many disciplines, including psychology, linguistics, logic, computer science, anthropology, and philosophy, and they are tested using evidence from psychological experiments, clinical studies, field studies, computer simulations, and neurophysiological observation.

Organizational researchers have noted the harmful effects of negative work relationships and the benefits of positive work relationships. However, there is limited integration of these two fields of inquiry. Thus, I present the results of two empirical studies which highlight complex affective ties at work, and how these ties may impact organizational attachment.
