The Munich Center for Mathematical Philosophy at Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität (LMU) Munich is now accepting applications for the MA program in Logic and Philosophy of Science. The official language of the program is English. Masters students are trained in all areas of philosophy, but the distinctive feature of the program is that many students also investigate philosophical issues at the foundations of mathematics, computer science, statistics, and the empirical sciences (including physics, linguistics, neuroscience, and more).

LMU has a long-standing tradition in logic and philosophy of science. Recently, this tradition has been cemented by the foundation of the Munich Center for Mathematical Philosophy (MCMP). The MCMP is led by the internationally-renowned philosophers Hannes Leitgeb and Stephan Hartmann. Overall, the Faculty of Philosophy, Philosophy of Science and Study of Religion at LMU is one of the largest in the German-speaking world.
