Program Details

Osnabrück University is one of the first to offer substantial Cognitive Science programs offered in Germany.

Studies in the Cognitive Science Master’s programme cover multiple aspects of cognition, such as perception, attention, memory, learning, problem-solving, reasoning, emotions and language. The program focuses on questions related to how these cognitive abilities are realized in biological or in artificial systems and how such systems are organized. In addition, complex information processing systems like teaching systems and spoken language dialogue systems are treated from a design and implementation perspective, including human-computer interface aspects.

Students will choose two specialization areas from:

  • Artificial Intelligence
  • Cognitive Psychology
  • Linguistics and Computational Linguistics
  • Neuroinformatics and Robotics
  • Neuroscience
  • Philosophy of Mind and Cognition

There is No Tuition fee for the program.
