Cognitive Science (CS) at Hampshire focuses on the study of mind, brain, behavior, and intelligent technologies. CS integrates ideas and methods from psychology, neuroscience, computer science, philosophy, linguistics, evolutionary biology, animal behavior, education, anthropology, and other fields.

Student and faculty work in CS draws on a number of programmatic areas:

Members of the CS faculty pursue a wide range of  research and professional work, which provides students with extensive opportunities for hands-on projects, apprenticeships, and internships.

CS courses take on cutting edge topics and give students the knowledge and the writing and research skills to shape their concentrations and to initiate their own independent projects.

Hampshire's undergraduate CS program was the first in the nation and has produced many distinguished alums.
