Course info

Summary

The Master of Science (MSc) programme enables you to pursue advanced study in your area of interest with the opportunity to work on independent research.

Programme overview

Studying for an MSc is an opportunity for committed scientists to focus on a relevant area of interest or practise and pursue an advanced qualification. While taught masters will provide you with specialist training in your chosen field, a research masters will develop advanced research skills, working alongside Faculty of Science researchers - many of whom are major contributors in their field. Late Year Semester will start in November.

120-point MSc

Most students enter an MSc following completion of a PGDipSci. You will need to complete 120 points (maximum of 160 points) in a specialisation within one year of full-time study or two years of part-time study (research masters) or four years of part-time study (taught masters). Not all specialisations offer both taught and research options.

240-point MSc

If you enter a MSc directly from an undergraduate degree you will need to complete 240 points (maximum of 280 points) in a specialisation in two years of full-time study or four years of part-time study (research masters) or six years of part-time study (taught masters). Not all specialisations offer both taught and research options.

Logic and Computation

You can study Logic and Computation as a postgraduate specialisation in either our Faculty of Arts or Faculty of Science programmes.

Postgraduate study in Logic and Computation combines a strong core of advanced courses in Computer Science and Philosophy, alongside Linguistics, Logic and Computation and Mathematics to explore the development of computer languages. Areas of research interests open to exploration include:

  • The design of algorithms
  • Definitions of computer models and complexity classes
  • Formal theories of syntax
  • The implementation and use of intelligent software agents
  • Issues in semantics such as pragmatics
  • Logic and set theory
  • An overview of the learning problem and the view of learning by search
  • Philosophy and computation
  • Representation formalisms
  • Standard artificial intelligence problem-solving paradigms
  • Surveys agent architectures and multi-agent frameworks
