Cognitive Science Society

The Cognitive Science Society promotes a community of students interested in cognitive science at the University of Virginia.  Since cognitive science is a cross-disciplinary major, bringing together students and faculty from multiple departments, it is particularly important to have a forum for communication and gathering among the major’s members.

The goals of the Cognitive Science Society are:
  • Create cohesion within the major via building relationships between students and faculty
  • Foster stronger Alumni relations
  • Recruitment of majors by creating awareness of the major
  • Need a Job? We’ve got connections!
  • Resume Builder
  • Events
  • Lectures
  • Cohesion
  • Monthly coffee chats with professors
  • Fun
Please join us and become involved in promoting community for cognitive science majors at the University of Virginia. Contact:
