Cognitive Science studies the computational and representational structure of the mind by combining linguistics, philosophy, anthropology, computer science (especially artificial intelligence), and psychology.
Courses for the minor in cognitive science focus on three areas:
1) broad foundational issues in linguistics, psychology, and computing;
2) more specialized issues in mental representation, computation, theoretical linguistics, and epistemology;
3) problems in cognition, data processing, language and formal representation that are related to students' particular interests.
