MSc programme in Logic, Amsterdam, THE NETHERLANDS

http://www.illc.uva.nl/MScLogic/


The MSc Logic, offered by the the Institute for Logic, Language and
 Computation (ILLC) at the University of Amsterdam, is a two-year
 Master's programme providing intensive interdisciplinary research
 training for excellent students with a first degree in Mathematics,
 Computer Science, Philosophy, Linguistics, or a related discipline.

 *Courses*: We offer a unique combination of over 40 courses in
 Mathematical Logic, Theoretical Computer Science, Artificial
 Intelligence, Philosophical Logic, Formal Semantics and Pragmatics,
 Philosophy of Language, Computational Linguistics, Cognitive Science,
 and Mathematical Economics. You will be guided by an academic mentor
 to design your own personal programme of study out of this pool of
 courses, supplemented with a number of small individual research
 projects. The final semester is devoted to the writing of a Master's
 thesis, which in the past has often led to scholarly publications.

 *Language*: All courses are taught in English. At any given time, the
 programme hosts students from at least 25 different countries.

 *Career opportunities*: Most of our graduates embark on an academic
 career and continue with a PhD, often at top universities all over the
 world. Other career opportunities include the software industry and
 management consulting.

 *Application*: The application deadlines for September 2014 entry are
 1 April 2014 for students from European countries and 1 February 2014
 for all others.
