Getting Involved With Research: UCSD Students
UCSD students can enroll in COGS 160, upon permission. COGS 160 is a mixed Practicum/Seminar course designed to provide hands-on experience in research on infancy and early childhood. Students learn skills and are assigned responsibilities based on the project to which they are assigned. Students also participate in a journal club and prepare brief end-of-quarter presentations and reports.
COGS 160 is a 3-quarter sequence. Content, skills, and responsibilities evolve and expand every quarter.
Students work with a supervisor who oversees training and task progress.
Requirements for enrollment:
- Upper-division coursework in Cognitive Science, Human Development, Linguistics, and/or Psychology, covering content including one or more cognition or cognitive development cognitive ethnography, neuroscience, psycholinguistics
- GPA of 3.3 or better
- Commitment to a 3-quarter, 4-credit sequence
- Permission of instructor based on interview and availability.
Detailed requirements for becoming an undergraduate researcher…
We occasionally have students from other universities do research as exchange students or volunteers. Those individuals must be students in good standing with GPAs of 3.5 or better, must have an interview, and must commit 300+ hours of research project time.

Hi, I was wondering if you accept internship instead of conducting supervised research with COGS 160 over summer sessions?
Hi – Yes, we sometimes do that on a case by case basis. You can email Prof. Deak to get more info.
