Cognitive Science

The Graduate Certificate in Cognitive Science requires a minimum of 12 credits, consisting of one required core course and three electives. Students interested in obtaining the certificate will design an individualized plan of study in consultation with their major advisors, and the Certificate advisor (Program Director). The plan of study will be submitted to the Cognitive Science Steering Committee, which will advise on the appropriateness of the selected courses for the student’s stated goals, the availability of such courses, and the preparation necessary to undertake them.
