The University of Potsdam is offering an

MSc in Cognitive Systems: Language, Learning, and Reasoning

The MSc Cognitive Systems is a two-year Master's program that covers
computational linguistics, machine learning, and knowledge
representation and reasoning.  The focus of this MSc is on developing
intelligent computer systems, and in cognitive modeling. This brings
together several fields that already collaborate closely in research
in a unique, interdisciplinary combination.

The MSc is taught jointly by the departments of (computational) linguistics
and computer science.  All classes are taught in English, and progress
from lectures on state-of-art methods in computational linguistics,
machine learning and data analysis, and knowledge representation and
reasoning towards independent work in projects that are defined by the
students themselves.  The final, fourth semester is devoted to
preparing the MSc thesis.

The University of Potsdam is one of the leading institutions in the
field of cognitive sciences in Europe.  The city of Potsdam is the
historical residence of the German emperors, and its palaces are a
UNESCO World Heritage Site.  Many students choose to live in Berlin,
one of the most culturally vibrant cities in the world and home to a
lively start-up scene.  Both cities have a high quality of life at
modest living costs.  Tuition fees at the University of Potsdam are
below EUR 300 per semester and include a public transportation ticket.
