Minor Cognitive Science

Cognitive Science is the interdisciplinary study of human mental processes. Its fundamental goal is to determine the nature of human intelligence, and to define what is required of a physical system to produce behaviors ordinarily deemed “intelligent”.

Pursuit of typical problems (reasoning, language comprehension, visual recognition) involves the integration of disciplines such as philosophy, psychology, neuroscience, linguistics, and computer science.

The Program includes a state funded research unit and awards a Ph.D. minor. Students usually enroll in the Ph.D. program of a cooperating discipline; the minor is then designed in consultation with Cognitive Science Program faculty. The Program has special strength in knowledge structure, natural language processing, and cognitive neuroscience.

More than 50 faculty from 13 departments, and the following University-wide units participate in the Program: the Center for Complex Systems Study, the Cognitive Neuroscience Center, the Institute for Neurogenic Communicative Disorders, and the Neural Systems, Memory and Aging Center.

“Choosing the Master’s program for Physiological Sciences at the University of Arizona was one of the best decisions I could have made in my education. Our department is warm and collaborative, offering an array of research topics and techniques underneath a vast and integrative umbrella of physiology. Beyond my research experience, I was presented with teaching opportunities, which I feel honed my skill of scientific communication. Having the dynamic research/teaching/class schedule not only kept me active but helped me reinforce material in multiple contexts. Overall, this program was exactly what I wanted in my segway into the medical sciences… and with my teaching assistantship paying for my tuition, how could I say no?”​
