UC Merced Cognitive Science Minor

Cognitive Science is the study of human thought and its relation to human activities, including the study of language, perception, memory and reasoning. The Cognitive Science minor increases students’ knowledge of the mind and how it is studied from various perspectives, and it helps them to acquire critical skills in scientific research and in formal areas such as computer science and mathematics. Students are encouraged to become involved with faculty research.
