• Choose a faculty member from the graduate field of Cognitive Science to be a minor member representing Cognitive Science on your special committee, and to plan the content of your curriculum for the minor. If you wish to work with a professor who is not a Cog Sci field member, please contact the program manager to see about the possibility of field membership for that faculty member.
• Obtain the permission of this faculty member and of your special committee for the addition of this minor to your program. Since Cognitive Science is a minor field at Cornell, this faculty member cannot be the chair of your special committee. Moreover, to foster your interdisciplinary development, this faculty member should normally be a member of a field other than your major field.
• If this faculty member is not already a member of your special committee, submit a change of committee form to the Graduate School, adding this member. On the committee form, this faculty member should list Cognitive Science as the field/subject/concentration represented.
• If this faculty member is already a member of your special committee, but is currently representing another minor field, it will also be necessary to submit a change of committee form to the graduate school; in this case, one changing the field representation of this member. (In this case, you may or may not want to make other committee changes. This decision is best made in consultation with your chair, as well as other special committee members.)
