# Graduate Study in Logic at UC Berkeley

## Ph.D. Programs

There are three different Ph.D. programs at the University of California at Berkeley in which a student wishing to specialize in logic and related fields may enroll:

### Ph.D. in Logic and the Methodology of Science

The Group in Logic and the Methodology of Science administers a program leading to the degree of Ph.D. in Logic and the Methodology of Science. The Group is neither a part of the Department of Mathematics nor of the Department of Philosophy, but is an independent interdepartmental agency which cooperates closely with both of these departments. Students desiring to pursue the Ph.D. in Logic and the Methodology of Science should seek admission in the Graduate Division in Logic and the Methodology of Science, rather than in Mathematics or in Philosophy. Students in this program are expected to study both mathematics and philosophy, but neither as broadly as if they were obtaining a degree in one of these subjects. Although there are no Graduate Student Instructorships in Logic and the Methodology of Science, students in this program may hold, if qualified, Graduate Student Instructorships in the Department of Mathematics or in the Department of Philosophy. The Group’s website is http://logic.berkeley.edu.

### Ph.D. in Mathematics

The Department of Mathematics administers a program leading to the degree of Ph.D. in Mathematics. Students in this program may specialize in the foundations of mathematics, but are also expected to obtain a broad education in mathematics. Detailed information about this program is given in the Graduate Announcement of the Department of Mathematics, which can be obtained directly from the Graduate Assistant, Department of Mathematics, University of California at Berkeley, Berkeley, CA 94720-3840. The department’s website is http://math.berkeley.edu.

### Ph.D. in Philosophy

The Department of Philosophy administers a program leading to the degree of Ph.D. in Philosophy. Students in this program may specialize in logic, but are also expected to obtain a broad education in philosophy. Detailed information about this program can be obtained directly from the Graduate Assistant, Department of Philosophy, University of California at Berkeley, Berkeley, CA 94720-2390. The department’s website is http://philosophy.berkeley.edu.

## Masters Degree

Students desiring to obtain a masters degree in logic or a related field are advised to obtain a masters degree in Mathematics or in Electrical Engineering and Computer Sciences. Detailed information about these degrees can be obtained from the Graduate Assistant of the respective department.

## Logic Events

### Logic Colloquium

The Group in Logic and the Methodology of Science sponsors a biweekly logic colloquium, with talks by mathematicians, computer scientists, and philosophers.

### Working Group in the History and Philosophy of Logic, Mathematics, and Science

The Working Group in the History and Philosophy of Logic, Mathematics, and Science, jointly sponsored by the Philosophy Department and the Doreen B. Townsend Center for the Humanities, sponsors monthly talks, many of them on topics connected to logic.

### Berkeley-Stanford Circle in Logic and Philosophy

The Berkeley-Stanford Circle in Logic and Philosophy brings together graduate students from UC Berkeley and Stanford University to discuss research at the intersection of Logic and Philosophy.
