Cognitive Science and Language (CCiL) is an interuniversity and interdisciplinary PhD on Cognitive Science as a means of overcoming the barriers that have existed until recently among the different areas of cognitive science. The doctorate is the natural continuations of the Interuniversity Masters Degree in Cognitive Science and language, but it also admits students from other Masters degrees from different backgrounds who want to carry out quality research in one of the lines available on this programme. CCiL offers interdisciplinary training in one of the three areas of cognitive science: psychology, linguistics and philosophy. The programme is especially centred on the perception and acquisition of language, phonological, syntactical and semantic speech processing, the relationship between semantics and cognition, the logical structure of language and the epistemic and conceptual bases of its study, computational analysis of language and the relationship between the different areas of cognitive science. This PhD programme includes major specialists in the respective areas and the best lecturers and researchers in the university in which they teach as well as the continual participation of prestigious International specialists as gusts lecturers. All of this makes the CCiL a postgraduate programme that offers a level of scientific quality on a par with the best European programmes, and one which is especially recognised in the area of interdisciplinary cognitive science studies, as seen by the number of students that come to the programme from abroad and the consolidated prestige among universities in the same academic field.
