This program has been distinguished with the ANECA Quality Award.
The official Postgraduate Program in Logic and Philosophy has been designed as a Master and Doctorate research program offering postgraduates a unique opportunity to do their own research of international relevance into the world of Logic, History and Philosophy of Science, and Philosophy of Language.
The research of the Logic and Philosophy of Science Area has been noted for its great sensitivity towards current problems of knowledge, science, and technology. Currently the interests of the area focus on a wide range of questions articulated in strategic lines of great scientific, technological and social significance.
Participating in this program are the Universidad de Santiago de Compostela (Program coordinator), the Universidad Autónoma of Madrid, the Universidad de Salamanca, the Universidad de Valladolid, the Universidad de La Laguna, the Instituto de Filosofía del CSIC, and the Universidad de A Coruña.
We also provide courses by professors of the Universities of Valencia, Málaga, UNED the Universities of Sevilla and Granada.
One third of the program is taught in classes that take place at the University of Santiago de Compostela, the current coordinating university. The teaching concentrates on two sessions, each lasting 15 days. The first session takes place in October and the second session in February. The rest of the teaching is online, using Moodle as the main software platform: http://moodle.usal.es/
This postgraduate program leads towards the completion of a Master´s degree in Logic and Philosophy of Science and a doctorate.
The official languages of the postgraduate program are Spanish and English. Students should be proficient both spoken and written. Also, the program accepts students who prefer to present their work in one of the following languages: Portuguese, Italian and French.
This program is interesting not only for the philosophers, but also for other graduates in the humanities as well as sciences. Logic is the quintessential interdisciplinary subject, mediating between the Sciences and Humanities and an indispensable tool in all environments governed by rules.
One of the features of our program is that it is customized to fit student needs. Students can chose their courses with the help of a professor, choosing from four different tracks. Students have a wide range of options since each different track is customizable, making it possible that no two students will have completed the same courses.
