Program Information

School:McGill University
Faculty:McGill School of Environment
Degree:Bachelor; Honours
Field of Study:Cognitive Science
Description:Cognitive Science is the multidisciplinary study of cognition in humans and machines. It encompasses the traditional disciplines of psychology, computer science, neuroscience, linguistics and philosophy. The goal of cognitive science is to understand the principles of intelligence with the hope that this will lead to better comprehension of the mind and of learning and to develop intelligent devices that extend human abilities.

The Interfaculty Program in Cognitive Science is restricted to students in the Arts & Science (B.A./B.Sc.) degree program. Students can also graduate with an Honours in Cognitive Science. Those students interested in exploring the interdisciplinary approach offered by cognitive science who are not in the B.A./B.Sc. program can complete a minor in Cognitive Science in either the Faculty of Science or the Faculty of Arts as a complement to their major within one of the disciplines of Cognitive Science.
