Extra-Disciplinary COURSES

The Extra-Disciplinary requirement ensures that students engage with cognitive scientific concepts and theories outside the core disciplines, in areas such as music, anthropology, religion, economics, and political science, exposing them to the full breadth of the interdisciplinary study of the mind. Two (2) electives are required.

A partial list of courses that could be used to satisfy this requirement is provided below. Students may also request approval of courses not included in this list or from other fields by submitting a proposal and rationale to the Director of the Cognitive Science Program.

Students interested in courses marked with double asterisks (**) should write final projects/papers on a topic related to cognitive science.
