New Interdisciplinary Ph.D. Program in Cognitive Science at Tufts
University

Tufts University is proud to announce the launch of a new multi- and
interdisciplinary joint PhD program in cognitive science. Applications
for the inaugural Fall 2012 class are accepted immediately.

In recent years, Tufts has built up a world-renowned faculty in
Cognitive Science, some of whom have been prominent since the
beginnings of the field. The new joint Ph.D. program has particular
interdisciplinary strength in the area of human language, including
theoretical linguistics, psycho- and neurolinguistics, reading and
dyslexia, and computational linguistics, and it offers considerable
expertise as well in other traditional subareas of cognitive science
including animal cognition, human memory,
behavioral/cognitive/affective neuroscience, cognitive modeling,
robotics, and human-computer interaction.

The cognitive science faculty reflects the diversity of methods and
research paradigms in the field and includes: Daniel Dennett, Ray
Jackendoff, Maryanne Wolf, Calvin Gidney, Phillip Holcomb, Gina
Kuperberg, Holly A. Taylor, Robert Cook, Ayanna Thomas, Rich
Chechile, Ariel M. Goldberg, Heather Urry, Rob Jacob, Matthias
Scheutz, David Hammer, Barbara Brizuela, and Christoph Borgers.

Interested students are encouraged to visit the Program's web page at
http://cogsci.tufts.edu which provides detailed information about the
application process as well as contact information for cognitive science
faculty.
