CGIS is currently working on providing program recommendations for specific majors/minors. Please note that these are simply recommendations, you will need to speak to your academic advisor to ensure that you get the appropriate credit that is needed to fulfill specific requirements abroad.

Cognitive Science Abroad

Cognitive Science is an exciting, fast-growing, and revolutionary area of study which seeks to develop integrated explanations of mind, brain, and behavior. Drawing on concepts and methods from a range of related fields — including linguistics, psychology, philosophy, neuroscience, and computer science — Cognitive Science students acquire a truly interdisciplinary knowledge base and a multifaceted set of analytic skills.

Cognitive Scientists have much to gain from a study abroad experience, from forging global connections with scholars and peers in the field of Cognitive Science to gaining a deeper understanding of cross-cultural approaches to the study of CogSci topics such as decision-making, moral judgment, perception, language, and more! 

Important: Cognitive Science students who are considering studying abroad should meet with an academic advisor to discuss their course records, and/or the process of submitting a course petition.

To submit a course petition to the Weinberg Institute for Cognitive Science, first consult our list of Previously Petitioned Study Abroad Courses, as well as the Course Petition Criteria. If a course you would like to take during your study abroad program is not listed, please fill out and submit the Cognitive Science Undergraduate Study Abroad Petition form.
