COURSE REQUIREMENTS AND ACADEMIC STRUCTURE
To obtain the title of Master in Pure and Applied Logic students must earn 90 credits. This program allows students to opt for one of two tracks: the professional one or the research one. Depending on the track chosen, students will earn their credits as follows:
- Professional track: it's required to write a final master paper for 12 credits, and it's possible to obtain 6 credits with the participation in a research seminar.
- Research track: students earn 60 credits by successfully completing the taught courses, 24 credits by writing the master final research paper, and a further 6 credits by attending research seminars.
Main features of the Master Program
- The Master Program comprises five fundamental courses, which are compulsory for all students, and a wide range of optional courses. The program is scheduled to be completed in four semesters.
- No course has a duration of more than one semester. The scheduling of courses over the four semesters allows students a certain degree of flexibility in putting together their individual program. Those opting for the professional track can complete the taught courses in four semesters while students opting for the research track should aim to complete as many of the taught courses as possible in the first three semesters, leaving the fourth free to undertake and write up their introductory research work.
- Each course is worth 6 credits (ECTS system).
The European Credit
Transfer System (ECTS)
The ECTS system measures a student's overall work load, which includes attendance at lectures, individual study, exam preparation, the completion of exercises, attendance at problem-solving seminars where appropriate, reading assignments and any other activities designed to complete the course. In this system, one credit ECTS is equivalent in the master program to 25 hours of work.
Students will be carefully informed of the system of evaluation that will be adopted by the lecturer responsible for coordinating each course on the Master Program.
