Pure and Applied Logic

Recommended applicant profile

Students applying to the master's degree, regardless of their previous qualifications, must have:
  • An interest in carrying out research in the field of logic.
  • An abstract analytical mind, and a capacity for rigorous, abstract reasoning. An example of this could be to have successfully completed courses in mathematics or formal logic at graduate or post-graduate level.
  • A genuine interest in most of the topics covered by the course curriculum.
  • A good level of spoken and written English, to follow explanations in class, write out solutions to exercises and draft the final project.

Admission requirements

In accordance with Article 16 of Royal Decree 1393/29 October 2007, students must hold one of the following qualifications to access university master's degree courses:
  • An official Spanish degree.
  • A degree issued by a higher education institution within the European Higher Education Area framework that authorizes the holder to access university master's degree courses in the country of issue.
  • A qualification from outside the framework of the European Higher Education Area. In this case, the qualification should be recognized as equivalent to an official Spanish degree. If it is not recognized, the University of Barcelona shall verify that it corresponds to a level of education that is equivalent to official Spanish degrees and that it authorizes the holder to access university master's degree courses in the country of issue. Admission shall not, in any case, imply that prior qualifications have been recognized as equivalent to a Spanish master's degree and does not confer recognition for any purposes other than that of admission to the master's degree course.

Specific requirements

The bachelor's degrees that grant direct access to this course are mathematics, computing, philosophy and physics, as well as degrees in related disciplines.

In principle, graduates of any of the official degrees that grant access may apply. Candidates who do not hold any of these degrees may also be considered for admission, if they show that they fit the recommended profile and that, in the opinion of the Coordination Committee, they have sufficient knowledge of logic.

At the discretion of the Coordination Committee, philosophy graduates may be required to take bridging courses (the subjects Mathematical Language and Reasoning, Arithmetic and Linear Algebra from the UB's bachelor's degree in Mathematics).

Applicants should have a level of English equivalent to B1 in the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages. They will be required to understand class explanations and complete written exercises and assignments in English.
