We have a new advisor! Jon Colón has joined the Cognitive Science advising team! He is an extremely experienced advisor and is eager to meet all of the amazing Cog Sci students! Please feel free to contact him with any questions. 

Attention Cognitive Science Studies: Please know that due to my transition I may not be able to respond as promptly as I would like. If you have an urgent matter, please visit the Cognitive Science office at 140 Stephens Hall (enter through the breezeway and follow the signs) between 10-12 and 1:30-4:00 M-Th. 

If your matter is not urgent, please wait for my response. I will respond to your email as soon as I am able. 

Thank you for your patience,

Addition to 2015-2016 Philosophy Distribution Requirements. Click here for more info.

Upper-division philosophy courses generally require 2 prior courses in Philosophy, which criterion excludes many Cognitive Science majors. For this reason, for the 2015-16 academic year at least, the following *lower-division* philosophy courses, which have no such restriction, will fulfill the Cognitive Science philosophy distribution requirement. Those that seem especially relevant to cognitive science are marked *:

*Philosophy 3 - The Nature of Mind
  Philosophy 12A - Introduction to Logic 
  Philosophy 25A - Ancient Philosophy
*Philosophy 25B - Modern Philosophy (may be taken without having taken 25A)

Course offerings:
  Summer 2015: 3, 12A, 25A, 25B
  Fall 2015: 12A, 25A
  Spring 2016 (tentative): 3, 12A, 25B

Change to major for students admitted to UCB Fall 2015 and later. Click here for more info.

Cog Sci 131 will be taught in Python. If you haven't yet taken your programming class, take CS 61A. If you have taken Engineering 7, this will not be a problem.

Cognitive Science 1: Introduction to Cognitive Science - What you should do depends on your status. Click here for more info.

1. If you are enrolled in the class (i.e. not waitlisted but actually already have a position in the class), then you are guaranteed a position in the class, provided you attend class and section regularly.

2. If you are waitlisted in the class (i.e. your name appears in Bear Facts under the class waitlist), then you are not guaranteed a position in the class. Before the first day of class you will be sent a survey to fill out. We will not be able to answer questions about the waitlist until after the surveys are processed.

3. If you are neither enrolled nor waitlisted, we are sorry but we will not be able to accommodate you this semester. Please try another semester.
