Osnabrueck Cognitive Science Doctorate Programme 

Next admission deadline (for start in April 2003): 5 January 2003.

Cognitive Science started in Osnabrueck with a Bachelor Programme in
1998, which was the first undergraduate Cognitive Science programme
offered in Germany and has been attracting about 80 new students each
year. A Master Programme was started in 2001.

This autumn, we have launched the Doctorate Programme. It is a
three-year international curricular programme for the degree of a
Dr.phil. or Dr. rer.nat. and is supported by the DAAD. Admission to
the Doctorate Prgramme requires a Masters degree or equivalent in
either Cognitive Science or one of its subdisciplines. There is also
an option for an integrated Masters and Doctorate study.

The faculty of the programme are:

Prof. Dr. P. Bosch (Computational Linguistics and Cognitive Science)
PD Dr. H. Gust (Computational Linguistics and Artificial Intelligence)
Dr. B. Hammer (Neuroinformatics)
Dr. habil. Michael Herzog (Neurobiopsychology)
