Cognitive Science is the study of the human mind and how it shapes and is shaped by our experiences and interactions. Students of cognitive science are introduced to the basic cognitive processes underlying our conscious and unconscious perceptions and actions – how we make decisions, how we use language to communicate and share emotions, how we interact socially with others. This involves learning scientific theories as well as engaging in practical exercises where students use computer programming and statistics to design and carry out their own investigations of the human mind, the brain, and human behaviour.
AN INTERDISCIPLINARY ENDEAVOUR The mind is hugely complex, and no single discipline can hope to exhaustively understand it. Cognitive Science combines theories, methods and insights from a range of disciplines such as neuroscience, philosophy, linguistics, anthropology, and psychology in a coordinated effort to investigate human behaviour and the human mind.
Teaching is organised around lectures and group sessions in which students participate in discussions, make presentations, and work in study groups. Students also take part in practical lab work where they learn to analyse data from brain scans, behavioural experiments, and large text databases using computer programming and statistics. The Cognitive Science programme is embedded in a rich research environment surrounding Aarhus University’s Centre for Functionally Integrative Neuroscience, its Interacting Minds Centre, and its Centre for Semiotics. Students can attend research seminars and learn about new findings on an almost daily basis.
CAREERS On completing the BSc in Cognitive Science, you will be in a position to choose from a range of master’s programmes offering specialisation in topics such as cognitive science, neuroscience, information studies, or corporate communication. The interdisciplinary profile of the programme, combined with the concrete skills acquired in data acquisition, programming, and analysis, make graduates sought after by employers across a wide range of industries, including IT development, product design, neuroscience, consumer behaviour, and business analytics.
DEPARTMENT OF LINGUISTICS, COGNITIVE SCIENCE AND SEMIOTICS The Department of Linguistics, Cognitive Science and Semiotics is one of the nine departments at the School of Communication and Culture at the Faculty of Arts.
Teaching in the department is not only research-based, but also research-oriented. Students are encouraged to collect and analyse data and to design and carry out experiments, either alone or in cooperation with the research staff. Students may even have their research published. Students regularly present their research to fellow students and staff at research seminarshttps://bachelor.au.dk/en/cognitivescience/

Aarhus University in Denmark

Aarhus University is more than just a Top 100 university with research-based teaching and numerous programmes in English. It is a community.

A community of Danes and internationals

As an international student at Aarhus University, you will never be alone. You will be part of a group of more than four thousand international students, representing 120 nationalities. At the same time, the university and your fellow Danish students, all of whom speak fantastic English, are ready to help you feel safe and welcome in your new home country.

A community in the city

Students at Aarhus University benefit from the strong connection between the university, the city, and its many international businesses that support their study possibilities and opens the way to a successful future career.

A community of staff and students

Studying at Aarhus University means taking research-intensive courses, all taught by active researchers. The study environment is informal, and the open and critical discussions between students and professors make for a very exciting and dynamic learning experience. Many former students have told us how much they appreciate that the professor’s door is always open and their teachers are always ready to help them succeed in their studies.

These – and the fact that students have access to amazing facilities – are some of the reasons why former and current international students chose Aarhus University.
