The Logic and Theory of Science programme of Eötvös Loránd University aims at developing research abilities of the students. Its central part is the Logic and its Applications Seminar at the Department of Logic, where students and staff members together discuss their work in progress. The most often occurring topics of the seminar are set theory and model theory in their philosophical connections, philosophy of mathematics in general, formalisation of physical theories, such as special and general relativity within different logical frameworks. Students get acquainted with the research works of the staff of the department and its partner and join a research program in order to write their own thesis. They are required to give two presentations of their work during the two years.
This program is recommended to applicants who are planning to pursue doctoral studies in philosophy, mathematics, physics, linguistics.
This program enables students to apply for doctoral programs in various areas: philosophy, mathematics, physics, linguistics.
Strenghts of program
The Department of Logic at ELTE has successful cooperation with the Algebraic Logic research division at Alfréd Rényi Institute of Mathematics, Hungarian Academy of Sciences and the Department of Theoretical Linguistics of the Research institute for Linguistics, Hungarian Academy of Sciences.
The department organizes and hosts two weekly colloquia: the Logic and Philosophy of Mathematics seminar (LaPoM) and the Theoretical Philosophy Forum. Our MA and PhD students regularly and actively participate in these events.
The program is designed for those who want to continue their studies on the postgraduate level. Our graduates have good prospects for applying to PhD programs in philosophy, mathematics, linguistics, informatics, physics, economics and sociology.
