You can learn more about the Cognitive Science major from one of our excellent majors, Mohammad Wiswall: 


Majoring in Cognitive Science can take you where you want to go!

Cognitive scientists answer questions about the mind and how it computes and manipulates information using concepts and tools from many disciplines, including computer science, linguistics, mathematics, neuroscience, philosophy, and psychology. Understanding human behavior is foundational in many fields, making career paths for cognitive science wide-ranging. The major is also an excellent foundation for careers in other fields that draw upon Cognitive Science principles, such as business, education, law, and medicine.
