Due to the recent COVID 19 surge, the Cogsci advising office will be delivering services entirely remotely until further notice. The CogSci advising office has developed a new hybrid model to deliver services to students in-person, remotely, by appointment, and drop-in, and in various time zones. We hope to return to that model once it is safe to do so. 

To make an advising appointment, students should use the CalCentral advising tool.

Hello Golden Bears!

The Cognitive Science Program is looking to collect feedback from students, current and former, regarding their volunteer, research, and/or internship experiences as they relate to cognitive science. The purpose of this is to gain an understanding of where our students are when they're out in the field as well as to know which opportunities our students would enthusiastically endorse.

As you all wrap up finals, the advising staff would like you all to know that from December 23rd-Jan 4th the advisors will be out of the office.

If you have something pressing that needs to be discussed, you still have the opportunity to schedule appointments on Dec. 21-22 (next Monday and Tuesday); otherwise you will have to wait until Jan. 5th for our appointments to open again.
