The certificate in Logic and Formal Reasoning provides students with the opportunity to engage in a series of courses unified around the idea that logic and formal reasoning is a general skill, useful in a wide variety of academic contexts and applications. This certificate can be completed entirely within philosophy or with a more interdisciplinary course plan. Students who complete the certificate will be well-versed in formal methods of reasoning.
The rationale is that requirement 1 is an introductory course, requirement 2 is a necessary symbolic logic course, and requirement 3 comprises two advanced courses.
