Hey

Im just applying for my undergraduate, which will be in Philosophy. I was wondering if it is possible to move into a Cognitive Science postgrads from straight Philosophy? Bearing in mind that I would have no substantial Science or Mathematics qualifications, unless I was able to take some at University (which seems unlikely).

Thank-you!

It depends on each individual postgraduate program, but I would assume that if you during your degree specialize in Logic, Philosophy of Mind, and Philosophy of Language, then it could be done. A couple of modules from the departments of Psychology/CS/Mathematics wouldn't hurt either, of course.

I'd given up hoping for a response, thank-you!

Right, okay. I may try to get some maths done at University then (oh dear).

You might want to email each individual university you are interested in (at postgraduate level) and ask what modules they would prefer you to do in addition to the philosophy degree. I am no specialist in cognitive science, but it seems to me that basics of neuroscience/psychology might be even more desirable than mathematics.
