Welcome Cognitive Science Students

Two academic programs in Cognitive Science are hosted by the Institute for Intelligent Systems at the University of Memphis. The undergraduate Minor in Cognitive Science is available to all undergraduate students, including Psychology majors. Psychology majors also have the option of a Cognitive Science Concentration in their major, which is a separate and distinct from the Minor.

The Cognitive Science Graduate Certificate is open to both graduate students enrolled in existing programs and to non-degree seeking graduate students who wish to take classes just in the certificate.

Please find links to these academic programs above. Current students may find the current course offerings link particularly useful for planning their course work.

In addition to these programs, the Institute for Intelligent Systems hosts a vibrant research community focusing on Cognitive Science themes of language and discourse, learning, and artificial intelligence. Visit our homepage for more information about IIS research activity and how to get involved.
