The Logic programme of the University of Amsterdam enjoys a strong international reputation as an excellent research training programme. Graduates of the programme frequently move on to become key players in the international logical research community.


Studying Logic at the University of Amsterdam

The Logic programme of the University of Amsterdam is a research-oriented programme for highly motivated students with an excellent academic record. The programme is open to students from all over the world and is based on a scheme known as the I³ system: Interdisciplinarity, Internationality and Individuality.


We strongly believe that logic is an important research area that spans Mathematics, Computer Science, Philosophy and Linguistics and that has important applications in the social sciences. This programme is quite unique in that logic is the core area of interest, while at most other universities around the world it is only a minorpart of other fields.


The majority of students in the MSc Logic come from outside the Netherlands. The wide variety of nationalities represented in the programme creates flexibility and encourages open and inquisitive minds. In short, geographic mobility creates intellectual mobility.


Since the main educational goal of this programme is the formation of an individual research profile on the basis of each student's strengths and interests, there are very few required core courses. Students are assisted in designing their own personal programme by their academic mentor.
