Cognitive Science in the Real World - COGS399

This unit enables students to integrate the knowledge and skills acquired during their study of cognitive and brain sciences, and helps to prepare them for the next phase of their career in research, industry, or beyond. A major component of the unit is a PACE (Professional And Community Engagement) placement in which students will get hands-on experience of how cognitive science is put into practice in the workplace. Throughout this unit, strong focus will be placed on personal development, motivations, and reflective practice; ethical and cultural competence; effective scientific communication; the consolidation of acquired knowledge and practical skills; and deepening one’s understanding of cognitive science, especially the connections between the various disciplines of cognitive science and their impact on modern society.
