We are pleased to announce the appointment of Dr. Tamar Kushnir as co-director of the Cognitive Science program, voted on by the steering committee at the end of October. Morten Christiansen will continue in his position as co-director.
The interdisciplinary Cognitive Science program at Cornell supports connections to Psychology, Computer Science, Linguistics, Human Development, Philosophy, Neurobiology, Information Science, Mathematics, computational vision, and computational linguistics.
Throughout the academic year the Cog Sci program offers undergraduate and graduate minors; an international lecture series; Sprocket, the Cog Sci Film Series held each spring in conjunction with COGST 1101: Introduction to Cognitive Science; graduate and undergraduate travel grants; and the year-end Grad Convo luncheon, held every May.
Students and faculty are encouraged to attend our extracurricular programs in order to facilitate interesting and intellectual discussions and to gain exposure to a variety of related fields.
