Big news: Change of the director and administrators of the Master program Cognitive Science

Please use the contact details mentioned below if you have any requests regarding the program.


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 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.
