Decision Science News is based out of London. And you could be, too.

University College London and Birkbeck are launching a new MSc in Cognitive and Decision Sciences (to start in Sept 2007).

This program studies the cognitive processes underlying human thought and decision making. Key topics include: probabilistic models of the mind; the nature of computational explanation; the general principles of cognition; the scope of rational choice models; learning and memory; applications to economics and business.

It draws on an outstanding faculty at UCL and Birkbeck, including internationally renowned researchers in psychology, computational modelling, neuroscience and economics. It also takes full advantage of London’s unique position as a global “hot-spot” for research in cognition, decision-making, and neuroscience, with a high density of research seminars and scientific meetings.

The course is suitable for students from a wide range of disciplines, including psychology, economics, neuroscience, philosophy, computer science and statistics.
