MINOR IN COGNITIVE SCIENCE
Cognitive Science studies the computational and representational structure of the mind by combining linguistics, philosophy, anthropology, computer science (especially artificial intelligence), and psychology. Courses for the minor in cognitive science focus on three areas: (1) broad foundational issues in linguistics, psychology, and computing; (2) more specialized issues in mental representation, computation, theoretical linguistics, and epistemology; (3) problems in cognition, data processing, language and formal representation that are related to students" particular interests.
The minor requires 18 credits, distributed as follows (most of these courses have prerequisites, as listed):
|A. All of the following:
||Introduction to Cognitive Science
||Introduction to Linguistics
(restriction: programming experience)
|B. One of the following:
||Introduction to Computer Science I
||General Computer Science for Engineers
||Introduction to Computer Science
(coreq: MATH 115, MATH 117, MATH 221 or MATH 241
any of the courses not chosen under C
No more than 3 courses may be from a single department.
Pre-Professional Speech Pathology And Cognitive And Linguistic Science
Students who wish to prepare for graduate or professional work in Speech Pathology and Communication Disorders should major in Cognitive Science. Suggested minors include Psychology, Disability Studies, and/or Linguistics. This allows them to follow a course of study drawing on linguistics, speech science, psychology, neuroscience, and biology. This will include courses in acoustics, physiology, psycholinguistics, normal and abnormal development, and a variety of other scientific and clinical fields. A model concentration for students interested in Pre-Professional Spech Pathology is provided at (http://www.ling.udel.edu/ling).
