I came into Oswego first semester freshman year undeclared not knowing what I wanted to do at all. The next three semesters I attempted three different majors. The final one was Cognitive Science. After taking a psychology class in high school I had been interested in possibly focusing on that in college, but I wasn’t sold on it. After switching my major so many times, my advisor suggested for me to look through the undergraduate book at all of my options. When I came across Cognitive Science it caught my attention. Just by reading the names of the classes it appeared that most of them would be fun and interesting to learn about. Yes, I was terrified of the computer science classes because I knew nothing about programming. My first Cog class was Brains, Minds, and Consciousness. It was my earliest class but it was so intriguing I found myself actually wanting to wake up and go to class every day. Just after taking that first Cog. Sci. class I knew I wanted to keep this major and that I would be able to push through the computer science courses. Every Cognitive Science course I have taken since has just further expanded my interest in the subject area. There is so much to learn about the mind. Cognitive Science has helped me to better understand the way I think, and the way others around me might think. There has been nothing that made me regret having Cognitive Science as my major. It is such a wide variety of interesting subject areas that all work together to understand how the mind works. I am so glad I stumbled across Cognitive Science and that it is my major!
