Declaring the Cognitive Science Major

Students who indicate cognitive science on their UC admissions applications will be considered proposed cognitive science until they declare. To declare the Cognitive Science major you must complete the lower-division requirements (Psych 2 or equivalent, Psych 20, the calculus requirement and computer programming requirement--all with a 2.80GPA or higher). Once these courses are completed, you can declare the major by attending drop-in advising hours with a peer advisor, scheduling an appointment with a staff advisor, or attending a major declaration workshop.

*Note: Psychology and Cognitive Science double majors should come in to work on a plan with a peer advisors due to the complicated nature of this double major.
