Semiotics is, in essence, the study of signs and meaning. You will study how meaning is created in every sense of the word, whether in perception, thought, or language.

Programme structure

The MA in Cognitive Semiotics programme is comprised of a four semester curriculum and offers an introduction to, and training in, contemporary methods and theories in the study of meaning, with a focus on the cognitive sciences.

The programme consists of five main modules:
- Cognition and Semiotics
- Cognitive Linguistics
- Mind and Cognition
- Cognitive Aesthetics
- Experimental Cognition

Career opportunities

The communication and advertising industry: With solid knowledge about the ways people relate to meaning-forming structures in the surrounding world, it is an obvious choice to work with communication consultancy and design or within advertising and marketing.

Communication comes in many forms, so there are also examples of cognitive semiotics graduates working with the communication difficulties of the mentally handicapped.

Teaching: Cognitive semiotics graduates have also found employment as teachers at folk high schools or within the cognitive area.

Research: One out of seven cognitive semiotics graduates is currently pursuing a career in academic contexts around the world as a PhD student, research assistant or the like.
