English-language graduate programme “Logic” – Call for Applications

The National and Kapodistrian University of Athens (Department of History and Philosophy of Science), the Academy of Athens (Research Centre for Greek Philosophy) and the National Technical University of Athens (School of Applied Mathematical and Physical Sciences) organize a new, two-year English-language graduate programme under the title “Logic”. The new programme now invites prospective students for the academic year 2024–25 to express their interest by sending an email, with attachments as listed below, to from May 20 to July 20, 2024.

The graduate programme “Logic” covers both Mathematical Logic and Philosophical Logic/Philosophy of Logic. It extends to the use of Logic for providing foundations of Mathematics and to the application of Logic to central branches of Philosophy, such as Metaphysics and Philosophy of Language. It also covers the History of Logic. It has three specializations:

  • History and Philosophy of Logic (M.A.)
  • Logic and Foundations of Mathematics (M.Sc.)
  • Mathematical Logic (M.Sc.)

The programme will be taught by members of the three cooperating institutions, as well as by distinguished scholars from other Greek or foreign institutions.

The programme admits graduates of Greek universities or of recognized cognate institutions abroad, as well as graduates of TEI (Greek Polytechnics). But, in order to be in a position to complete the courses successfully, students need to be acquainted with using symbolic languages and formal methods.

The programme is currently in the process of being accredited by the Hellenic Authority for Higher Education (HAHE). The main part of the process will take place in mid June. Barring any entirely unexpected delay in the accreditation, the programme will start operating in October 2024. However, until the accreditation is complete, no formal applications may be submitted. The prospect is that, with the expression of interest from those who would like to attend the programme, the assessment of the applications will be prepared so that formal procedures can be fast-tracked in September 2024.

So those who are interested are invited to send an email to attaching:

  • a brief c.v.
  • a copy of their first degree (if they have graduated)
  • a transcript of records (if they have not graduated, it should show that there is a high probability that they will by September 2024)
  • and a brief text explaining why they are interested in this particular programme.

Anyone interested can seek more information at the webpage of the programme or at the above-mentioned email address.
