The Cognitive Science Program at Berkeley offers undergraduates the opportunity to explore the mind in interdisciplinary perspective. Courses in the program draw on psychology, linguistics, computer science, philosophy, neuroscience, and anthropology, among other fields, to illuminate how the human mind works, and why it works the way it does.
Many influential ideas within cognitive science originated at Berkeley. The program draws on over forty affiliated faculty from a variety of departments, and is closely integrated with cognitive science research efforts across the campus.
The Cognitive Science Program is an undergraduate program. There is no minor. For graduate study, see here.
The Student Academic Advisor's job is to guide students and faculty as they navigate University, College, and Major Program policies. MacKenzie is an experienced educator who is available to serve as a sounding board for ideas and concerns as they arise.
