Master’s program in cognitive science – What will I learn?
Cognitive Science is the multidisciplinary study of models of thinking. It connects research from psychology, philosophy, linguistics, computer science, neuroscience, pedagogy, biology, anthropology etc. in order to address and answer core questions regarding the human mind (and also various non-human minds such as those of animals and robots). How are experiences represented in the brain? Do we think in “words” or “images”? What happens when we learn a language? How do we form new concepts? Is it possible to build a robot that can independently solve practical problems? Is it possible that a machine can have a consciousness or a free will?
