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 lead 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.
