Introduction

CCiL is an interdisciplinary postgraduate program (Master’s and PhD) in Cognitive Science taught jointly by some of Catalonia’s leading universities. It has been designed to overcome the academic barriers between the various disciplines that make up this broad field of study. The program focuses primarily on perception and language acquisition, the syntactic and semantic processing of speech, the relation between semantics and cognition, the logical structure of language and the epistemological and conceptual foundations of its study, the computational analysis of language and the relation between the different disciplines of Cognitive Science.

CCiL offers an interdisciplinary training in three specific research disciplines: psychology, linguistics and philosophy. The Master’s program combines a common core of basic subjects with a selection of specialist subjects drawn exclusively from one of the three disciplines. The Master’s in CCiL seeks to give students the skills to carry out an initial research project that can be subsequently extended joining the PhD program and that forms the basis of an eventual doctoral thesis.

Both the Master’s and the PhD courses, in each of the three specific research disciplines, are taught by the best academic teaching staff and researchers at the universities that participate in this joint program. Throughout the year, the postgraduate program also welcomes leading experts from around the world as guest lecturers. Because of these features CCiL offers an academic training of excellence, similar to the leading postgraduate programs in Europe.
