Programs MAthematical logic PHD

  1. Dec 19, 2008 #1
    I cannot find any sort of comprehensive list of top schools in mathematical logic. It seems that U Wisconsin should be good, though I don't know if that is the case now that Barwise has passed. UC Berkeley is clearly a good school for logic. All of the places that show up are in Europe. I would not mind England or a Germanic country such as Switzerland, since I speak a decent bit of German and have plenty of time to brush up. Plus it seems that there are graduate courses conducted in English at Zurich.

    Honestly, as I sure it is the case with many people, I would rather stay in the U.S. That being the case, any info on Phd programs in logic in the U.S. other that the two I already mentioned, would be much appreciated.

    Go through the Assistantships and Graduate Fellowships booklet and see which departments are awarding Ph.D's in logic. It might take awhile, but it would be the most comprehensive list.

    Thanks, this is quite helpful.

    Do any of you know about the admissions standards for the Cambridge mathematics phd program as they compare to say, those of UC Berkeley?
