Why should I choose this field of study?

Artificial intelligence, machine learning and all processes based on human-computer communication – did you know that their development would not have been possible if not for the research led by cognitive scientists? Cognitive science is a multidisciplinary field of study that investigates the cognitive processes of the human mind by integrating knowledge and methods of psychology, linguistics, sociology, or philosophy, but also computer science and mathematical statistics. This is because scientific knowledge of the processes of the human mind – such as inference, information processing, perception, or memory – is essential for the design and use of advanced systems that shape 21st century communication, as well as the development of effective marketing and social communication.

During the course of your bachelor’s degree in Cognitive Science at the University of Economics and Humanities in Warsaw, you will explore a range of issues related to cognitive development, both in terms of psychology and linguistics, as well as computer science. You will also gain hands-on experience on how to use data and information processing tools and systems. What is especially important, during your studies you will gain practical research skills and learn how to use them in your future career.

Note: The program of Cognitive Science is conducted exclusively in English, so we recommend them to candidates with knowledge of this language at least at the B2 level.

Cognitive Science – what can I do after graduation?
