Cognitive Science Undergraduate Minor
Advisor: Cynthia G. Clopper (email@example.com)
The goal of the Cognitive Science Minor is to offer students studying in a variety of fields opportunities to get grounding in Cognitive Science -- an interdisciplinary study of the mind that incorporates psychological, philosophical, linguistic, biological, and artificial intelligence approaches to how knowledge is acquired, processed, and represented in the mind. The minor in cognitive science consists of at least five courses totaling 15 credit hours.
Program Learning Goals
- Expose students to cognitive science and several of its constituent disciplines.
- Provide students with interdisciplinary learning and research environments.
- Expose students to cognitive science research at Ohio State and nationally.
Minor Course Requirements
- Required course: Psychology/CSE/ Linguistics/Philosophy (cross-listed) 5612: Introduction to Cognitive Science (3 credits)
- Area/module requirement: Two courses from one of the areas/modules below (6 credits)
- Elective course requirement: Two additional courses from the list below (6 credits)
- You cannot use courses from the department of your major to satisfy the minor, except when your major is psychology. Psychology majors may include psychology courses on the cognitive science minor, but those courses cannot also count toward the major.
- Courses selected to fulfill the area/module and elective course work requirements must come from at least two different departments.
- You may request that the undergraduate advisor in cognitive science approve a non-standard module.
- Please contact the advisor for the Cognitive Science Undergraduate Minor, Dr. Cynthia Clopper, if you have questions.
