Course Information

Understanding cognition, which includes processes such as attention, perception, memory, reading and language, is one of the greatest scientific challenges of our time. As well as deciphering the workings of the healthy mind and brain, cognitive and brain scientists also investigate disorders such as anxiety, autism, dyslexia, post-traumatic stress, and schizophrenia.

The Bachelor of Cognitive and Brain Sciences – the only degree of its kind in Australia – will provide you with a strong foundation in the rapidly growing fields of cognitive science, neuroscience and computation, with an emphasis on building your critical-thinking and research skills in areas such as science communication, statistics and programming.
