Cognitive scientists study thinking in humans, animals, and machines. With more than twenty participating faculty from many fields, the B.Cog.Sc., M.Cog.Sc. and Ph.D. degrees in cognitive science produce scholars with broad perspectives on cognition, with skills from experimental testing to computer programming. Graduates are prepared for research jobs in academia, the government, and industry that require multiple tools and broad skill sets to understand the most complex of entities: minds.
Carleton also offers one of the few undergraduate Cognitive Science degrees available in Canada. The B.Cog.Sc. (Hons) degree in Cognitive Science is an interdisciplinary program that is centred in the Institute of Cognitive Science. The degree program is intended for students who are interested in cognitive processing – of humans, animals, and machines.
