The course structure of M.Sc in Cognitive Science and M.A in Society and Culture offered by IIT would prove much valuable to the aspirants in strengthening their concepts in the respective areas because of the competent teaching staff with a lot of experience. Moreover, the streams being taught in this premier institute cannot be compensated from other sources where the aspirants lack the conducive environment and the privilege of scholarship being offered by the institute.

The author has provided all the relevant informations for both the courses.
