Welcome to the Program in Cognitive Science

logo4The Program in Cognitive Science is an interdisciplinary undertaking, involving scholars from Computer Science, Electrical Engineering, Linguistics, Molecular Biology, Neuroscience, Philosophy, and Psychology.  Our primary goal is to foster a vibrant interdisciplinary intellectual community based around cognitive science. We offer an undergraduate certificate program, and a graduate student fellows program. We also host various events, including a colloquium series, a lunchtime talk series, as well as other offerings. The program's events are open to all members of the Princeton community, and student participation – both graduate and undergraduate – is strongly encouraged.
