This is a last call for applications for the MSc program on Language and Multimodal Interaction (within the Cognitive Science degree). The Master’s degree course in Cognitive Science, LMI track, is aimed at the acquisition of advanced theoretical and methodological knowledge in cognitive science through an interdisciplinary approach to the study of the mind-brain system and a focus on human language. Students will learn skills that range from formal semantics and theoretical syntax to computational methods for modeling language and its interaction with other modalities to language deficits and pathologies. Students are actively involved in developing research projects and have access to UniTN laboratories and research centers in Trento (like FBK) during the Master’s program, thus gaining invaluable hands-on experience with the latest research technologies.

The deadline is FEBRUARY 20, 2018 (for both EU and non-EU citizens). If places are still available, the call will be reopened from March 20 to June 12, 2018 (only for EU citizens and non-EU residents in Italy).
