Individual Course Approval Process

Courses approved for the Cognitive Science major are reviewed by our area specialists and director change each term and are determined to have sufficient cognitive science content to be included in our approved course list.  "Topical" (courses with numbers x500, x541) and "New" (courses listed with numbers x559) are often included in our approved lists, but only for specific topics or sections that directly relate to Cognitive Science or have a great deal of Cognitive Science content. 

If you are taking a course you think should count for your Cognitive Science elective credit you must submit the course syllabi along with the form course approval request. Please be aware we will not approve courses to fulfill core course requirements, only elective credit for the major. Please check the list below to make sure you are not submitting a course that has already been denied when previously submitted.

Please note that STAT classes are not considered to be viable substitutes for core credit in computer science or to fulfill the calculus requirement.
