Cognitive Science (COGSCI)
COGSCI 200. Introduction to Cognitive Science
PSYCH 112, or one of LING 111, LING 209, or LING 210. (4). (ID). (BS). May not be repeated for credit.

The goal of this course is to provide an integrated overview of the some of the major approaches to understanding the mind and brain - approaches that together constitute contemporary cognitive science. The problems associated with understanding how and why our minds work the way they do are some of the deepest and most complex facing science, and no single discipline can lay claim to privileged status when it comes to making progress. Indeed, much of the recent excitement in the field has come from approaches that draw on the ideas and methods of multiple disciplines. In this course we'll get a taste of some of that excitement.
