Student Learning Outcomes

This interdisciplinary minor integrates elements of Psychology, Biology, Neuroscience, Philosophy, and Computer Science into a unified field of study to better understand the human mind.

Students will be able to:

  • Students, through both oral and written assignments, and laboratory work will demonstrate a basic understanding of the various methodologies used by neuroscientists, psychologists, computer scientists, and philosophers to address questions about cognition, consciousness and behavior, and how those methodologies work together.
  • Students, as part of a senior capstone seminar - will be able to demonstrate an ability to synthesize research findings from an array of disciplines in the cognitive sciences in the evaluation of a question pertaining to cognition, consciousness and behavior.

For further information, contact the Cognitive Science Minor Advisor, Dr. Michael Silberstein.
