Course information


The course aims to integrate and summarise the first two years of study at the program and to give basic knowledge on research and theory of science.


The course comprises two parts:

  • Theory of science and research methods. This part presents basic theory of science and discusses various scientific methods used in cognitive science.
  • Project. The students will be divided into groups of six students that are to conduct a small research project. The work can be done at a department of the university, a public authority or a company. The actual work will mainly be done at the university with a possible customer outside the university. The project needs to utilize competence within at least two cognitive science subjects and the students will have two supervisors; one from each subject. Supervisors are alloted after students have decided on which project to carry out.
