A masters refers to the completion of a graduate study program that prepares students to further their knowledge of a specific subject or advance their careers. The majority of masters are granted by state or public universities.
The study of philosophy is a pursuit of wisdom. It involves a type of thinking that is comprehensive and critical, and seeks to answer questions of reason, understanding, knowledge, emotion, values, rationality and different beliefs. Philosophy education may be beneficial for careers in law, politics, civil service and journalism.

Logic, Master’s Program
Logic is traditionally defined as the study of formal aspects of valid reasoning, but today many logicians see logic as a more general study of formal systems and their applications. The conceptual frameworks and tools developed by pure research in modern logic have found many applications in diverse disciplines studying formal languages and systems, e.g., software engineering and computational linguistics.
As an academic subject logic is genuinely interdisciplinary and located on the border between Philosophy, Mathematics, Computer Science, and Linguistics. The exchange is active and mutually beneficial. Logic is nowadays an active international area of study and research also in mathematics, computer science, and linguistics. ...

The Master in Philosophy at USI differs from many other philosophy programs:
It offers courses in contemporary analytic philosophy and in the history of philosophy, ancient and medieval, which are designed to complement each other.
Its focus is on theoretical philosophy and its history - especially on metaphysics and the philosophy of mind.
It has a strong thematic unity; the topic of the 2017-8 Master is time - the metaphysics of time, temporal consciousness, the logic and linguistics of time, the philosophy of history, the nature of narratives, time and social ontology.
It requires students to submit regular written work, to produce research papers and to develop their discussion skills in class.
It offers courses in philosophy for up to at least 105 ECTS.
This is a combined taught and research degree in Philosophy, which will teach you how to successfully undertake research on philosophical topics of your interest. Apart f
The M.Res. (Master of Research) degree is a combined taught and research degree, in which you take an advanced taught module in ‘Metaphilosophy’ (the study of the nature of philosophical inquiry) which is jointly taught by various staff on the programme. You will write a dissertation (about 20,000 words) and also undergo research training, which is assessed by portfolio. The focus on metaphilosophy is unique to Keele and makes for a fascinating course of study since the various staff who will teach you have very different views about the nature of philosophical inquiry. This degree is ideal for students who want the freedom to write a dissertation on a topic of their choice, while also receiving the guidance expected from a taught masters....

The programme is well suited for students who wish to study language from a comparative perspective. The programme places special emphasis on the formal aspects of grammar, in particular, syntax and phonology. The approach to these disciplines relies on comparative studies of many languages.
The Master's of Philosophy in Theoretical Linguistics covers graduate level studies in theoretical linguistics and is to be seen as an extension of work at the Bachelor's level. The programme places special emphasis on the formal aspects of grammar, in particular, syntax and phonology. The approach to these disciplines relies on comparative studies of many languages. Students will develop insight into the structure of language, comparative aspects of linguistic research, social and geographic variation, the historical development of languages and language acquisition. At the Master's level, students will develop special interests based on their coursework and will write either a Master's Thesis or two article-length papers....
