Logic, Master’s Program
Logic is traditionally defined as the study of formal aspects of valid reasoning, but today many logicians see logic as a more general study of formal systems and their applications. The conceptual frameworks and tools developed by pure research in modern logic have found many applications in diverse disciplines studying formal languages and systems, e.g., software engineering and computational linguistics.
As an academic subject logic is genuinely interdisciplinary and located on the border between Philosophy, Mathematics, Computer Science, and Linguistics. The exchange is active and mutually beneficial. Logic is nowadays an active international area of study and research also in mathematics, computer science, and linguistics. ...
