Find out how and when to reach Cog Sci academic advisors

Welcome to the Weinberg Institute for Cognitive Science!

Thought. Language. Choice. Learning. Emotion. Motivation. How does the mind work, and why does it work the way that it does? Is your brain a biological computer? What is the nature of human agency, the relationship between the mental and the physical?

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.

Advising Hours for Spring and Summer 2020

For Spring and Summer 2020, CogSci advisors will be available virtually on a limited basis. You can see and sign up for available appointments here. When signing up for an advising appointment, you will have the option to select a “virtual” or “phone” format. Information on virtual platforms can be found in the “student alert” section of the appointment. If none of the available options work for you or you are unable to access the advising calendar, please request an appointment via email to Weinberg-Institute@umich.edu, and be sure to specify how you would like to be contacted.
