About Us

The Institute of Cognitive Science (ICS) at CU-Boulder has gained an international reputation for its promotion of interdisciplinary research and training in cognitive science. The Institute is known for theory development and the application of those theories to real-world problems. Research within the institute can be classified into three interdisciplinary areas:

  • Training and Education — principles, communities, and technologies
  • Language Processing psychological, computational, and technological approaches
  • Higher Level Cognition cognitive neuroscience, computational, and theoretical perspectives

Within these classifications we draw on the contributions of faculty fellows from seven participating academic units:

College of Arts and Sciences

College of Engineering and Applied Science

School of Education

College of Architecture & Planning

The institute also houses four research centers:

ICS graduate programs are designed to supplement existing graduate programs in cognitive science departments and consist of certificate programs and two combined PhD programs. An undergraduate certificate program is also available for students.
