Best Part time PhDs in Humanities and Social Sciences in Taiwan. About the Program The all-English PhD program in Cognitive Sciences (CS) at National Chung Cheng University (CCU) is a new doctoral program, formally established in 2013, created by the joint efforts among faculty members of Center for Research in Cognitive Sciences, Department of Psychology, Graduate Institute of Linguistics, Department of Philosophy, Graduate Institute of Education, Department of Electrical Engineering, and Department of Computer Science and Information Engineering. CCU has been playing a leading role in fostering and promoting cognitive sciences for more than a quarter of century in Taiwan, and we are excited to announce the new degree-awarding PhD program, which represents an interdisciplinary integration across many well-developed academic institutes and departments at CCU. Our goal The main objectives of the CS program are to explore the nature of human mind and intelligence, the brain mechanisms underlying mental functions, and the behaviors that derive from the mental faculties. More specifically, the program covers areas encompassing psychology (especially cognitive psychology), linguistics, philosophy (especially philosophy of mind), artificial intelligence, image processing, machine learning, and neuroscience. We not only anticipate to make contributions to the study of mind, brain, and behaviors from our own disciplines, but also to benefit from closely interacting and communicating with colleagues from other disciplines that share the same intellectual interests, both at the level of theory construction and the level of empirical inquiry. To those ends, we have organized the CS program into four core areas in accordance with the expertise of participating faculty members. The four core areas are as follows: Cognitive neuroscience — including visual cognition, developmental neuroscience, emotional development, reading and language development, cognitive modeling, neuroanatomy, neurophysiology, etc. Linguistics and language processing — including syntax, phonology, semantics, psycholinguistics, language and cognition, computational linguistics, language acquisition, reading comprehension, etc. Mind and cognition — including the basis of logic and artificial intelligence, mental representation, consciousness, etc. Applied cognition — including cognitive aging, human factors, education and learning, human-computer interface design, artificial intelligence, image processing, and machine learning, etc. Vision and Career Prospects Providing a diverse and rich learning environment for CS students to have first-hand global village experiences. Nurturing and cultivating CS students’ professional skills and knowledge in cognitive sciences and the related fields. Empowering CS students with the required training and skills to pursue (a) teaching and positions in colleges and universities, (2) R&D positions in industries where humans as end users are the main concern of manufactured goods and products. Eligibility: Who can apply? Eligibility for applying the CS all-English PhD program is in full accordance with the requirements set forth by CCU.
