Field of Study: Cognitive Science
Description: Cognitive Science is the interdisciplinary study of intelligence in humans and machines. It encompasses work done in computer science, linguistics, neuroscience, philosophy and psychology. Drawing on the concepts, theories, and methodologies of these disciplines, cognitive scientists seek an understanding of such mental phenomena as perception, language, learning, and reasoning in information-processing terms, and they aim to integrate this understanding with a neurophysiological account of how the human brain implements these information-processing phenomena. Cognitive Science also offers a science major program. The arts major program has a “Perception and Attention” stream, a “Language and Cognition” stream, and a “Thinking and Reasoning” stream; the science major has a “Computational Cognition” stream and a “Cognition and the Brain” stream.
