Graduate Programs

The Institute sponsors Graduate Certificate Programs and Combined PhD Programs that provide exceptional breadth and depth of interdisciplinary training in the cognitive sciences. Graduate students who are interested in these ICS programs must first be admitted to a participating graduate program hosting cognitive science fellows:

  • Psychology and Neuroscience
  • Philosophy
  • Computer Science
  • Linguistics
  • Speech, Language, and Hearing Sciences
  • Education
  • Architecture and Planning

Students in good academic standing in one of these academic units can then make a formal application for admission to the Certificate or PhD Program at ICS. Each program has formal approval from the Graduate School, and completion of a program is acknowledged by a Certificate of Completion on the student’s transcript, with the PhD programs noted on the student’s diploma.

ICS students can take an active role in the administration of ICS programs. Student representatives serve on the Student Travel and Research Fund Committee and elect one representative to serve on the ICS Executive Committee.
