Area of interest

Cognitive Science is the multi-disciplinary study of mind and cognition. Researchers in Cognitive Science come from a wide range of backgrounds -- including psychology, computer science, artificial intelligence, philosophy, mathematics, neuroscience, and others -- but share the common goal of a better understanding of the human mind.

The research Master Cognitive Science is a joint venture of the Department of Cognitive Psychology, located at the Faculty of Psychology and Education, and the Department of Artificial Intelligence located at the Faculty of Sciences. The research Master Cognitive Science is a two-year Master allowing students to obtain a Master of Science (MSc).

The program focuses on the processes that underlie human functioning from two different research perspectives: empirical work and computational modeling. The combination of these two research perspectives allows a better understanding of the mechanisms underlying human functioning. Cognitive Science aims to challenge students to be knowledgeable in and sympathetic to a wide variety of fields and techniques, all of which are related to the subject area of cognitive science.
