MASTER COGNITIVE SCIENCE IN BOCHUM
The 2-year Master Cognitive Science at Ruhr-Universität Bochum (RUB) offers a unique opportunity to enter into the fascinating field of cognitive science. It combines systematic and empirical approaches from philosophy, psychology, neuro-informatics, psychiatry and the neurosciences. Students will be trained to use and combine different methodological approaches in order to gain new insights in key problems in the field of cognitive science and generate interdisciplinary solutions to solve them.

Since the beginning of this Master program, Professor Newen has directed the program with high devotion and commitment. Due to the high time investment necessary to support and foster all students in the best way possible, he has decided to hand over the program direction. We are very grateful for everything he has accomplished to establish and improve this program. Now we are happy to announce our new program director Professor Rose, who will be responsible from 1st February onwards. With the change of the program director, student consulting and coordination of the program will be part of Prof. Rose’s department as well. Following Dr. Vernazzani, Beate Krauß will be the person to ask any questions you have concerning the study program or your individual study plans. You can find the contact details below. As part of this transition, we created the new e-mail account firstname.lastname@example.org which you can use to contact us. Prof. Newen and his team will support us in the beginning. Thus, it will be a smooth transition and we can make sure that you do not have any disadvantages caused by this change. We kindly ask the speakers of the currently enrolled years (start WS 2021/22 & WS 2020/21) to contact us and moreover to inform us if there are any questions about the change.
We are looking forward to accompanying you on your way to the MSc. degree and wish you a happy, healthy, and successful study life.

Please check out the university’s FAQ about the summer semester 2020 for information about the current situation. We also have a letter from the program coordinator, Dr. Vernazzani, for you:
As you know, the SS20 will start on April 20th. Please, remember that there will be no class meetings this semester. Officially, the dean’s office at the Faculty for Psychology introduced the compulsory attendance requirement for all classes except lectures within the Master Cognitive Science program. However, this summer semester this compulsory attendance requirement will not apply. I strongly encourage students to check e-Campus for further details regarding the courses you intended to take this semester. If the information on e-Campus seems to be outdated, or in case of doubt, please get in touch with the course instructors a few days before the seminars’ start in order to find out the teaching modalities.
This semester, the teaching will happen mainly through Moodle. Therefore, I strongly encourage you to check whether the courses you would like to attend are available on Moodle and enroll as quickly as possible, as there might already be some important information about didactic and course materials. Enrollment to the seminars is conducted through e-Campus, as before. Please, remember that you have to register separately for the seminar on Moodle. In case you have questions, you can get in touch with me per e-mail:
Please, bear in mind that due to the large amount of emails it might take a bit for me to reply to all; do, please, send me a reminder in case you haven’t heard back from me within two days. I hope you stay safe, and I wish you all a good start of the semester!
Dr. Alfredo Vernazzani
