Program Description:

The doctoral program in Cognitive Science was created by a core of cognitive science-oriented psychologists, philosophers, and computer scientists. This is a truly unique interdisciplinary program that trains students to integrate theories, methods, and tools from a variety of fields. Students work closely with individual faculty, whose research interests include computational cognitive modeling, human and machine reasoning, perception and action, computational linguistics, multi-agent systems, and social simulation. There is a strong emphasis on building models of integrated cognitive systems using formal, quantitative, and mathematical tools. The department has excellent research facilities, such as eye tracking equipment, a robotic arm, and a large-scale immersive virtual environment lab. Students will also find excellent opportunities in cognitive engineering, the application of cognitive science theories to human factors practice.
