Joint degree by the Open University of Cyprus, School of Pure and Applied Sciences and the University of Cyprus, Department of Psychology and Department of Computer Science. Since the inception of the computing paradigm, the prevalent metaphor for a computer has been that of a multi-purpose tool, as exemplified by the use of “command lines” and “desktops” at the interface between humans and computers. The unparalleled prevalence of computing-enabled devices in our everyday lives and the widespread access to information over the Web suggests a more apt metaphor for a modern computer, that of an assistant. Humans no longer use, but rather collaborate with their devices to solve a cognitive task, with each party learning and adapting to the capabilities of the other. Communication and decision-making happen at a level that is transparent to, and cognitively-compatible with, human abilities and limitations. One no longer speaks of human-computer interaction, but of human-computer symbiosis. To teach the new paradigm of cognitive computing, the M.Sc. Program in Cognitive Systems brings together two main scientific areas: Cognitive Psychology, and Artificial Intelligence in Computer Science. Aiming, on the one hand, for the prospective students to understand the basis for human cognition, the Program is strongly influenced by Cognitive Psychology and includes learning modules that explore the fundamentals of perception, learning, mental representation, and reasoning in humans. Aiming, on the other hand, for the prospective students to be able to design cognitive systems, the Program places its emphasis on the investigation of computational methods and tools...

This International Master is a joint degree delivered and awarded by four universities: the University of Glasgow (UK), the University of Malta, the Open University of Cyprus and Tallinn University (Estonia).
Objectives of the Programme
A distinctive feature of this programme is the connection between theory and practice, gained through focused placements and mobility periods between the partner universities.
It draws together the recognized strengths of the consortium partners into a relevant, joint degree that engages with and responds to such issues as social inequality, migration and intercultural cooperation.
The programme aims to deliver a curriculum that enables people to work with adults effectively and competently in changing socially diverse contexts.
You will receive a theoretical grounding in adult education, as well as intercultural and practical skills development through teaching placements, focused seminars and online courses.

Object of the postgraduate curriculum "Cultural Policy and Development" Is to exploit and promote the culture of both cultural heritage and contemporary artistic creation, as well as the culture of everyday life. The Program focuses on highlighting the public value of Culture, particularly in the context of modern challenges.
The aim of the Master's Program
The aim of the Program is to provide graduates with cognitive (theoretical and practical) and metacognitive (methodological, epistemological) skills that will allow them to understand in depth the added value that culture provides. The aim is also to provide specialized knowledge of rational and scientifically documented management of cultural resources and cultural capital to people who are or will be employed in the field of cultural management....
