Overview

Cognitive science investigates how information is represented, processed, and transformed in both humans and machines. The program involves the interdisciplinary study of the mind and seeks to further understand what the mind does and how it works.

Within the Department of Psychology, the cognitive science program at Mount Allison is one-of-a-kind in Atlantic Canada — incorporating perspectives from a variety of fields.

Specific courses in psychology, computer science, physics, philosophy, and chemistry form the core of the program, and you select the remainder to focus on your particular interests.

In the first year, you will take introductory psychology, computer science, mathematics, chemistry, and physics courses.

In the second year, you will pursue courses in psychology, computer science, and philosophy such as:
