We want to know how the mind works. Don't you?

Here at MIT, we believe that to understand the mind, you must also understand the brain – and that is why we bring cognitive science and neuroscience together under the same intellectual roof. If you are looking for a comprehensive approach to the biggest questions in cognitive science, we invite you to join us.

MIT's graduate program in cognitive science offers the freedom to shape your research to work across disciplines, departments, and research centers. With the best faculty and research programs ranging from language to computation to cellular and molecular neuroscience, you will tackle the toughest problems and the most interesting questions. With the resources of a world-leading research university and research centers including the McGovern Institute for Brain Research and the Picower Institute for Learning and Memory, as well as on-site facilities for fMRI and MEG imaging, you will have all of the tools that you need. And with a creative, motivated and diverse student body you will find an environment that supports and enhances your education.

The Department of Brain and Cognitive Sciences is looking for students who want all of this. Are you one?
