Cognitive Science Minor

How does the human mind work?  What is the nature of intelligence?  How do we acquire language?  How do we learn and reason?  Can we build intelligent computers with the intellectual capabilities of humans?  Are robots in our future?

Questions like these drive the field of cognitive science, which is based on computer science, psychology and philosophy.  Hartwick has a strong, interdisciplinary program in this area.
