Overview

The programme explores the aspects of “cold cognition” such as memory, attention, and language, with the integration of “hot cognition” which is the relationship between cognitive processes such as emotions, motivation, decision making, communication and how they apply to situations of everyday life. Students will learn how to reflection on the ways in which knowledge of cognitive psychology supports the development of assessment tools, intervention, and cognitive enhancement throughout life. The application of cognitive psychology is addressed by analysing the cognitive mechanisms involved in non-psychological professional fields. Students can work in areas such as ergonomics, learning psychology, as well as health and aging where cognitive psychology is central and in other areas where its contribution is documented such as law (with forensic psychology), economics (with decision psychology), and the study of the environment (with environmental psychology).

Career opportunities

Employment opportunities emerge in all areas where a psychologist with a solid background in cognitive psychology can be useful: this includes areas where the psychologist may have a core role, such as ergonomics, learning psychology, psychology of health, environmental psychology, and the psychology of aging; or it may involve professional settings in which the contribution of cognitive psychology has been widely documented, such as law (with the contribution of forensic psychology), economics (with the contribution of decision psychology), the study of the environment and space (with the contribution of environmental psychology), and the arts and literature.
