How does this relate to Cognitive Science?:
One important component of reviewing scripts and designing entertainment for a specific audience is the knowledge of how that audience thinks. Cognitive Science students have the unique advantage of understanding both artificial and real systems, and this knowledge will serve within a sector associated in creating digital content for an audience. Additionally, the ability to read and summarize research reports is an important component within the cognitive science curriculum.
