Logic is a multifaceted subject that connects many disciplines, including mathematics, computer science, philosophy, linguistics, and other areas. The certificate facilitates advanced studies in a variety of topics, including: mathematical logic; the theory of computation; formal semantics; natural-language reasoning; vagueness, probability, and contradiction; and the application of logic and formal methods to law and cognitive science. Administered through the UConn Logic Group, which is an internationally recognized center of logic research excellence, the certificate will provide students with a broad and comprehensive background in the subject, with a specific focus on interdisciplinary applications.
