MA Cognition and Culture


Course Description

Founded by the Queen's University, Belfast in September 2004, the Institute of Cognition and Culture (the ICC) is one of the world's first multidisciplinary centres for research in the cognitive science of culture. This is a new and rapidly growing field in which scholars seek to explain patterns of cross-cultural variation using the methods and theories of the behavioural sciences (especially, experimental and evolutionary psychology).

The MA is undertaken full time over 12 months, beginning in September of each year. The programme consists of six modules (courses): four taught modules (courses), which will be assessed by coursework, and a dissertation between 12,000-15,000 words (double module). The four modules are designed to enable students to undertake significant research and to produce a dissertation. Candidates who pass the four taught modules but do not submit a dissertation, or who submit an unsatisfactory dissertation, will be awarded a Postgraduate Diploma.

Modules:

• Theory and Methods in Cognition and Culture
Experimental psychology and anthropological fieldwork techniques

• Evolution and Human Behaviour
Natural foundations of human behaviour

• Social Cognition
Cognitive basis of social behaviour

• Cognitive Science of Religion
Cognitive structure of religious thought, belief, and behaviour
