Graduate Certificate Program Overview

Are you interested in being a part of a rapidly-growing area of study? Cognitive Science is the interdisciplinary scientific study of the mind and its' processes, the brain, and behavior. The Graduate Certificate Program includes the intersection of multiple research disciplines, including psychology, artificial intelligence (computer science), philosophy, linguistics, and neuroscience. The program's emphasis on formal methods in theory and data analysis will widen the opportunities for graduate student careers in government and industry, outside the traditional tenure track academic positions where there is increasing demand for such technical skills.

The Graduate Certificate Program coursework will give students cohesive training in essential approaches to the study of cognition. The flexible program will also provide opportunities for students to engage in creative and interdisciplinary research opportunities with cross-departmental faculty.
