Definition of the field of studies

Cognitive sciences deal with the conscious and unconscious processes taking place between sensoric and motor function. They include e.g. thinking, memory, learning or language. In general they explore processes as information processing.

Exams

The master’s programme consists of compulsory modules (introduction to cognitive sciences, research in cognitive sciences, new trends in cognitive sciences), alternative compulsory modules (artificial intelligence, behavioural biology, linguistics, neurosciences, philosophy, psychology, statistics, mathematics and programming) and elective modules. It can be divided into an introductory period and a phenomenon-oriented period. The programme concludes with a master’s thesis and a master’s exam in the form of a defence. Students have to study part of the courses at one of the partner universities (Bratislava, Budapest, Ljubljana, Zagreb) of the programme.
