Program Information

The Cognitive Science Program comprises an interdisciplinary research program and a doctoral degree program. Students carry out intensive research projects in state-of-the-art computer-based laboratories. There are two Ph.D. degree options, a standalone Ph.D. in Cognitive Science and a joint Ph.D. in Cognitive Science and another discipline, for example, psychology, computer science, philosophy, linguistics, or speech and hearing sciences. The program is designed to train students in theory development and model building (mathematical, formal, and computer simulation models), in empirical research, and in the development of the conceptual framework and technical skills for successful careers in research, teaching, business, and government.

Doctor of Philosophy Degree

Admission Requirements
Admission is by approval of the program's graduate admission committee. Applicants should have an undergraduate major in Cognitive Science, Psychology, Computer Science, Philosophy, Linguistics, Biology, or Anthropology; basic computer programming skills; and basic knowledge of mathematics for science, including calculus and statistics. In exceptional cases the programming or mathematics admission requirements may be waived and satisfied while pursuing graduate study.

Course Requirements
A minimum of 90 credit hours, including the core courses Q520 (3 cr.), Q530 (3 cr.), Q540 (3 cr.), Q550 (3 cr.), Q551 (3 cr.), and Q560 (3 cr.) and selections totaling at least 16 credit hours from offerings listed in the Program in Cognitive Science or cross-listed with other departments, divisions, or programs. A maximum of 6 of these 16 credit hours may come from pure research courses (Q799, Q899, or the equivalent in another department). On the basis of their undergraduate background, students may be exempted from no more than one of the core courses. Students must also register for at least four semesters in the Colloquium Series course Q733. In one of these semesters, the only for which credit is received, each student will be expected to give a lecture on his or her independent research as a part of the Colloquium Series.

Each student will also select a Content Specialization, an area of study that can be approached from the perspectives of the different disciplines within cognitive science. The list of available Content Specializations currently includes Language and Speech, Modeling, Dynamical Systems, Logic, and Human-Computer Interaction, but new Specializations will be added to this list in 2004-5. Contact the program for an up-to-date list. Each Content Specialization has a designated faculty member in charge of maintaining a list of required and recommended courses. Students must complete at least five courses in their specialization, and these courses must be taken in at least two different departments. The Content Specialization should normally be selected by the end of the student's second year in the program, and the courses selected must be approved by the student's advisory committee.

Minor Requirement
Students must complete a minor in another department or program. Courses counting toward the minor may also count toward the student's Content Specialization. The minor should normally be completed by the beginning of the student's fourth year.

Qualifying Examination
In consultation with his or her advising committee, each student will select topics for three qualifying papers. Two of these topics are expected to be within the student's Content Specialization, and these should address at least two of the different methodological approaches to the content area. The third paper can deal with a topic in any other area of cognitive science. These papers will be evaluated by the committee, and the student will defend the papers orally before the committee. The student will normally write the papers during the summer following his or her second year in the program and defend them at the beginning of the following fall semester. Students failing the qualification examination may retake it once.

Joint Doctor of Philosophy Degree in Cognitive Science and Another Discipline

Admission Requirements
Acceptance into the Joint Cognitive Science Ph.D. program is contingent upon admission into another degree-granting program at Indiana University Bloomington, hereafter referred to as the "originating discipline" or "originating department." Students must apply to the originating department, informing it that they also intend to join the Joint Cognitive Science Ph.D Program.

Course Requirements
A minimum of 90 credit hours, of which 32 credit hours must be in courses listed or cross-listed in cognitive science, including Q520 (3 cr.), Q530 (3 cr.), Q540 (3 cr.), Q550 (3 cr.), Q551 (3 cr.), Q733: three semesters at 0 credits and one semester at 1 credit when the required colloquium is given by the student, and at least 6 credit hours not in the originating discipline and not among the Q-courses. (It is expected that most students will place out of one of the required courses on the basis of work toward a previous degree; for example, students with a degree in computer science would not be expected to take Q530.) The 6 outside credit hours may not be taken in pure research courses (the equivalent of Q799 and Q899). The 32 credit hours may include a maximum of 6 credit hours in pure research courses (Q799, Q899, or the equivalent in originating departments). Strong encouragement is given to interdisciplinary diversification. Note that courses may count toward the requirements of both cognitive science and the originating department.

Tool-Skills Requirement
Statistics K300 or K310 or the equivalent.

Qualifying Examination
There are two options for the qualifying examination: (a) an examination in the originating discipline and a separate comprehensive examination in cognitive science (these may be taken at separate times); or (b) a joint examination covering relevant areas of both the originating discipline and cognitive science, as determined by the advisory committee, and with permission of both the originating discipline and the Cognitive Science Program. The cognitive science examination is normally taken after completion of the cognitive science course requirements. The examination may be repeated only once.

Public Colloquium
The student must give a colloquium as part of the Q733 colloquium series advertised at large to the university community, and covering some aspect of the student's research in cognitive science. The research covered may be from any stage of the student's career, including (but not restricted to) the thesis research.

Final Examination
The public and oral defense of the dissertation will be conducted jointly with the student's originating discipline.

Ph.D. Minor in Cognitive Science

Graduate students obtaining a Ph.D. in another discipline may find that that discipline gives them the option of taking a minor in cognitive science. To obtain such a minor, students must satisfy the following requirements: (a) obtain approval from the Cognitive Science Program; and (b) complete Q540; one of the following: Q530, Q560, or Q550; at least two semesters of Q733; and at least 6 other credit hours in cognitive science courses not in the originating discipline.

Certificates in Cognitive Science

The Cognitive Science Program is extremely broad, ranging from psychology to business to anthropology to computer science, to name just a few. Students in other disciplines may elect to focus on an area or areas within the broad range of cognitive science. Certificates are open to students upon request; several different cognitive science certificate programs are described in the following pages. Note that certificates are not required for a joint Ph.D. degree. The student will inform the cognitive science office, the student's cognitive science advisor, and the certificate director of an intent to pursue a certificate.
