The Cognitive Science Program at Indiana University recognizes the educational value of student involvement in practical experiences outside of the traditional classroom. Such experience allows for professional application of knowledge and skills gained in cognitive science coursework and research. In order to support student efforts for obtaining practical experience, a Cognitive Science internship program and course description have been established to meet the following objectives:
- Students will apply theories and skills, learned in coursework, to practical experiences in industry or research organization settings.
- Students will develop new knowledge and skills as a result of their involvement in the internship program.
- Student learning from the internship experience will enhance career and educational objectives.
