Master's programme in Cognitive Science and Humanities, San Sebastian, SPAIN


Master's in Cognitive Science and Humanities (The University of the
     Basque Country)
PRE-REGISTRATION OPEN (all June)

The Institute for Logic, Cognition, Language, and Information (ILCLI;
www.ilcli.ehu.es) of the University of the Basque Country (Donostia?San
Sebastian) now invites applications for the 2013/2015 Research Master in
Cognitive Science and Humanities: Language, Communication and Organization.
The Master prepares the students for a Ph.D. All courses are taught in
English.

A two-year long program has been designed to prepare talented students for
a Ph.D., and an academic or professional career. This program emphasizes
methodological skills, encourages interdisciplinary approaches, and
provides the student with ample opportunity to pursue his or her particular
interests in small groups and/or individual tutorials.

The Master is structured in 90 ECTS (60 theoretical and practical and 30
for the Master Thesis). Partial-time students are allowed to register for
the Master earning 90 ECTS in three academic years. Students entering with
a degree of 180 ECTS will be able to obtain the extra 30 ECTS needed
through complementary theoretical and practical ECTS.

Students may specialize in any topic at the intersection between the
Humanities (Philosophy, Rhetoric, Art, Logic) and the Cognitive Sciences
(Linguistics, Psychology, Sociology, Philosophy of Mind) related to the
studies of Language, Communication and Action.

This is an International Master, designed to attract both international
students and teachers. The teaching staff includes researchers from
national and foreign Universities, including the University of the Basque
Country, Barcelona, La Laguna, Valencia, Ottawa, Paris. Also, exchange
programs are arranged for Master Students with Research Centers in France,
Poland, Belgium, Bulgaria, and Spain.
