Official Master's Degree in Cognitive Science and Language


The master's degree in Cognitive Science and Language belongs to an inter-university and interdisciplinary postgraduate programme (master's degree and PhD) in Cognitive Science and Language (CCiL) which responds to the need to overcome the academic barriers currently separating the different fields within cognitive science. The programme focuses in particular on language perception and acquisition, syntactic and semantic processing of speech, the relationship between semantics and cognition, the logical structure of language, and the epistemic and conceptual foundations of its study.

The master's degree in Cognitive Science and Language offers interdisciplinary training in the three areas making up Cognitive Science: psychology, linguistics and philosophy. There is a common module on basic subjects and another specialisation module made up exclusively of subjects from one of the three areas.
