Cognitive science is an emerging field that encompasses multidisciplinary study of the mind, from the perspectives of philosophy, psychology, neuroscience, computer science, artificial intelligence, linguistics and anthropology. The UC Davis Cognitive Science major
, inaugurated in autumn 2015, is available in three degree options. The bachelor of arts track introduces students to cognitive science as a theoretical subject, yet does not require an in-depth understanding of biology or calculus. Students may also elect to obtain a bachelor of science degree in cognitive science with either a computational or neuroscience emphasis.
