People

Teaching faculty come primarily from the five core areas that are studied in the Cognitive Science program. Five faculty from the Anthropology, Psychology, Philosophy, and Computer Science Departments make up the Cognitive Science Committee, representing five concentrations. This committee is responsible for choosing courses each semester that are appropriate for Cognitive Science majors.
