“Many graduate programs expose students to different research approaches and provide opportunities to collaborate with researchers across disciplinary boundaries. CogSci at Johns Hopkins taught me how to be interdisciplinary, how to be a cognitive scientist. Even though I am in a Psychology Department, it is now second nature to do research that engages linguists, neuroscientists and engineers. Because of my Hopkins education, I have developed an interdisciplinary research program that connects me to other faculty members throughout my university.”

“I came out of the Hopkins program with clear sense of what cognitive science is. The program taught me how to integrate elements from artificial intelligence, generative linguistics and neuropsychology into a research program that is driven by questions about the mind. This has become my life’s work, and I’m very grateful for the training I received there!”

“My training in Cognitive Science at JHU provided me with a truly¬†integrated training in formal and experimental methods. This has allowed me to move easily between distinct disciplinary cultures, so that I am recognized as a linguist *and* a psychologist. Being a living bridge between these fields has opened up new collaborations and areas of research that have allowed me to continually grow as a scholar.”

“I was very lucky to study with the JHU Cognitive Science department. As a graduate student, I found what I was looking for: a deeper understanding of the mind and brain, and preparation for a career in science. One thing that made this possible was, not just an interdisciplinary approach, but a real coalition of computation, cognition, neuroscience, and linguistics. The other thing that made it not only possible but enjoyable was the collaborative spirit between thoughtful faculty and passionate students.”

“The graduate training I received in the CogSci department at Hopkins gave me a strong theoretical basis for my research and an interdisciplinary perspective that I treasure. Through coursework, seminars, and research projects I acquired not only excellence in my subfield (cognitive (neuro)psychology), but also learned “the language” of linguistics, philosophy, and computational modeling. This breadth allows me to understand and connect with researchers across fields to answer broad questions about cognition.”
