    | Would recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course to a student who is considering the Cognitive Science major at Penn. It is a great introduction to the many fields of research done within CogSci, and can give students an idea as to what area they may wish to concentrate in. However, I would recommend this class be done as an underclassman. As an upperclassman, the material may come off redundant to many other Psychology, Linguistics, or Computer Science courses already taken. The material is surface level so as to cover a wide range of topics, and may not be stimulating for an experienced student.

    Course highlights:

    Highlights of this class are unique to whatever the individual student is interested in. For me, the neuroscience material made for the most effective sections. A particularly unique lecture on the neurobiology of monogamous love was a highlight throughout my career at Penn! For more technologically inclined students, they may have been most fascinated by the artificial intelligence lecture or the many discussions about the similarities between computers and brains. There are sections for everyone!

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Pay attention in recitation and work hard on the assigned homeworks! The questions presented this way are a great indication of what will be on the exams. Definitely utilize Piazza if you have any questions on these assignments, the professors and TAs are thoughtful and responsive.
