Our program:
The Cognitive Science program at Osnabrück offers study courses on B.Sc., M.Sc., and PhD level characterized by a holistic approach to cognitive science as a discipline, encompassing artificial intelligence, biologically oriented computer vision, cognitive modeling, cognitive psychology, computational linguistics, neurobiopsychology, neuroinformatics, philosophy of mind and cognition, and psycho/neurolinguistics in its fields of active research and teaching. Rooting in the original idea of 'cognition as computation', but updating and renewing the former within recent developments and theories (such as, e.g., embodied and enacted aspects) the study programs are characterized by a tight coupling between ongoing research and student education. Additionally, besides the institute's own course program, also the university's research groups on differential psychology, work and organizational psychology, knowledge-based systems, and neurobiology are associated and offer lectures and seminars open to cognitive science students.
