Course Description

Course Profile
Second-cycle studies in Cognitive Science in English are a continuation of first-cycle studies in Cognitive Science conducted in Polish by the University of Warsaw. The second-cycle Cognitive Science programme is significantly more advanced than the first-cycle program, as well as more specific. It focuses on two areas of empirical research in cognitive science and related sciences. After the first semester, students choose one of the paths which programme becomes obligatory for them.
1. Within the neurocognitive path, students gain in-depth theoretical and methodological knowledge of the cerebral basis (and broader - biological) of cognitive processes, the use of modern techniques for studying brain activity as well as planning and analyzing research while using them. While learning about modern methods of supporting development and education, diagnosis and rehabilitation, students also learn how to use new technologies to improve the cognitive functioning of people.
2. As part of the computational path, students gain in-depth knowledge and skills in the basics and methods of modelling cognitive, language and social, processes. Emphasis is placed on the human behaviour and its products as well as on the cultural, environmental factors determining it. Hence the stress is put on the natural language and its processing in this path. Creating computational models explaining cognitive and social phenomena (eg. decision making), analysis of data, data mining and natural language processing are skills that are more and more demanded on the labour market.
