As one of the few genuine departments of cognitive science in the world, we offer unique and exciting opportunities for students to focus on the scientific study of mind, brain, and intelligence. Staffed by a core of cognitive-science oriented psychologists, philosophers, and computer scientists, the department complements Rensselaer's traditional strengths in science, engineering, and technology, and is widely regarded as a leader in the area of computational cognitive modeling. We offer a highly selective PhD program in Cognitive Science, and BS programs in both Psychology and Philosophy. Faculty research interests include computational cognitive modeling, artificial intelligence, human and machine reasoning, computational linguistics, perception and action, theoretical neuroscience, cognitive robotics, cognitive engineering and advanced synthetic characters.
