Christine’s Answer

Hi Jane,.
You have selected some excellent majors. They are both are and will continue to be in the forefront of Science, Technology and Psychology and in some ways Psyciology. Going through the web, I found a couple of Universities which appear to have very good CS and Cog Sci programs.

Cognitive Science Programs:
https://www.collegefactual.com/majors/multi-interdisciplinary-studies/cognitive-science/rankings/most-popular/

This website gives some input on different Universities which offer Cog Sci programs, unfortunately you will have to put up with some ads but it does have some helpful info. Once you pick out a couple of schools which you are interested in, then look up each one for the specifics of each University.

Computer Science Programs:
https://www.niche.com/colleges/search/best-colleges-for-computer-science/

Both of these websites list some of the top, most expensive Universities but they also list great universities which may be more in line with tuition affordability.

I noticed you're from Houston, Rice is one of the Universities listed with excellent programs in Computer Science and Cognitive Science. You may find Rice might work out great.

I highly recommend that you take a look at UC Berkeley's Computer Science and Cognitive Science Major Programs. UC Berkeley is very well-known for their CS program/professors. It is known to be difficult, but very valuable.

Hi Jane,

I strongly recommend that you check out the University of California, Irvine (www.uci.edu). UCI is both nationally and internationally recognized as a top school across the board, and particularly for your two areas of interest, CS and CogSci.

Check it out at:

UCI Department of Cognitive Sciences
https://www.cogsci.uci.edu/

UCI Bren School of Information and Computer Sciences
https://www.ics.uci.edu/

UC Irvine is an outstanding university with a park-like campus that is only minutes away from great SoCal/Orange County venues like the beach, Disneyland, South Coast Plaza, theaters, dining, parks, and much more.

Good Luck!

Steve recommends the following next steps:

Visit UC Irvine's website at www.uci.edu to discover all you need to know about this rapidly-growing, dynamic university
Check out their top-rated computer science program at www.ics.uci.edu
Learn more about their innovative CogSci program at www.cogsci.uci.edu

Tian Hao’s Answer

The University of California system have many schools that are highly ranked for both Computer Science and CogSci. UC Berkeley and San Diego both come to mind.

I spent a summer interning at a CogSci lab at UCSD and had a wonderful time! As a group, we would look at research papers, learn new ways to classify new brain cells based on data, and frequently visit fellow researchers in neighboring institutes.
