Particular courses within relevant departments are designated as being cognitive science courses. Courses from other departments, such as mathematics or systems engineering, may be designated as cognitive science courses if their content is judged to be appropriate by the undergraduate committee that oversees the curriculum. The following is a list of courses that are offered on a regular basis. In addition, there are numerous cognitive science courses that are offered more infrequently, and thus, the following should not be thought of as an exhaustive list.
