- either a BSc (Hons) or a BA (Hons) in Logic and Computation.
- a significant component of an Honours degree in Mathematics or Computer Science.
Masters degreesHere the options are:
- an MA in Logic,
- either an MSc (Part 2) or an MA in Logic and Computation.
Doctoral studyBoth Logic and Computation and Logic are available for qualified students who wish to study for a Ph.D. The process of doctoral study is managed by the Faculty of Graduate Research, whose website has full information about application and admission.
Postgraduate Diploma in Science (PGDipSci) or in Arts (PGDipArts)These are one year programmes consist of 120 points of 400-level coursework. They can be completed full-time in two trimesters or part-time over up to four years and hence provide an alternative to the Honours degrees for students with significant work or other commitments. LOCO can be taken for PGDipSci or PGDipArts, and LOGI for PGDipArts.
Undergraduate degreesUndergraduate students interested in logic have three main options at VUW. Logic can be incorporated as a significant component of:
- a major in Computer Science
- a major in Maths
