Among other things, you learn about the statistical analysis of the data and computer programming, which will enable you to carry out your own experimental studies, as well as be critical of experimental studies, which have already been carried out.
Can you measure a thought?
In the course of your studies, you learn about the fundamental cognitive processes that underlie our conscious and unconscious perceptions and actions. You learn about how humans make decisions, and how we use language to communicate, share feelings and interact with others.
This requires knowledge about relevant scientific theories as well as specific practical tools. You will thus learn computer programming (e.g. Python) and advanced tools for statistical data analysis (e.g. R and MatLab) which you will use in your own experimental investigations of human cognition and behavior.
With a Cognitive Science programme from Aarhus University , you can choose among a wide range of Master’s degree programmes, including Cognitive Science, Neuroscience and Neuroimaging (Beijing) or Information Studies. The interdisciplinary nature of the programme along with its focus on concrete data collection and analysis skills means that graduates of the programme are attractive to prospective employers from a variety of sectors, including IT, product design and neuroscience research.
“The programme is just what we need out here in the real world. There’s an enormous unmet need for graduates who are able to combine behaviour, data and cognition, which will be fundamental elements in many business models in the future.” Henrik Dresbøll, CEO Cosmographic and WeLearn.
