Brief description of the degree course
Characteristics and objectives
The course of Applied Cognitive Psychology develops along two parallel lines.
On the one hand, it goes into more depth on classic topics of cognitive psychology, focusing on aspects relating to what is called 'cold cognition', such as memory, learning, thinking, reasoning, language, attention, etc., and also on its extension to 'hot cognition', i.e. the relationship between cognitive processes and emotions, motivation, decision-making, and communication.
On the other hand, the course offers insight on how this knowledge is applied to situations of everyday life. The course promotes reflection on how our knowledge of cognitive psychology can support the development of assessment tools, intervention and training to enhance cognition throughout the human lifespan, in children and in adults young and old. The applications of cognitive psychology are also addressed by analyzing the cognitive mechanisms involved in non-psychological fields (e.g. economy, law, arts, architecture, and sport). This is the case of its application to forensics and to decision-making in areas such as economics, in which concepts of cognitive psychology are routinely used. It is also applicable to the case of music, and how music can modulate cognitive performance (e.g. musical training).
In short, the course prepares students to meet the basic demands that the academic, clinical and occupational worlds may pose for a cognitive psychologist. The course also provides the methodological and theoretical knowledge needed to follow any post-graduate curricula.

Occupational opportunities
Employment opportunities emerge in all areas where a psychologist with a solid background in cognitive psychology can be useful: this includes areas where the psychologist may have a core role, such as ergonomics, learning psychology, psychology of health, environmental psychology, and the psychology of aging; or it may involve professional settings in which the contribution of cognitive psychology has been widely documented, such as law (with the contribution of forensic psychology), economics (with the contribution of decision psychology), the study of the environment and space (with the contribution of environmental psychology), and the arts and literature.
