Top marks for LiU Master’s degree in cognitive science
Högskoleverket (HSV), the Swedish National Agency for Higher Education, has evaluated the quality of cognitive science courses. The LiU master’s degree received the highest mark – very high quality.
“This is great news. LiU’s is the only master’s degree in cognitive science that has been evaluated, and it received marks of “very high quality” for five and “high quality” for one of the six evaluation objectives. All credit to our colleagues on the course and warm thanks for their hard work on the course and the evaluation process,” said Helena Klöfver, vice dean at the Faculty of Arts and Sciences, in a comment.
The evaluation includes the following assessment: “Overall, the results show very high objective attainment regarding student knowledge and understanding in the main field of study – including broad knowledge in the field as well as considerable specialised knowledge in certain aspects of the field – as well as deeper insight into current research and development work.”
LiU’s bachelor’s programme in cognitive science received a “high quality” grade from HSV for all five evaluation objectives. The HSV evaluation included a total of six programmes. Four were judged to be high quality, and two very high quality.
