This summer, all CogSci advising will be conducted by remote appointment M-Th 10am-12pm.
Please schedule needed appointments using the CalCentral appointment tool. If these times don’t work for you, please email an advisor. We will be available via email as normal throughout the summer months.
The main objective of the discipline of Cognitive Science is to provide a framework for bringing all the many disciplines that study the mind together into a cohesive whole. Students in our 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.
