The Logic, Information, and Computation Program (LOGC) offers students the opportunity to engage in a systematic, integrative, and interdisciplinary program of study within the School of Arts and Sciences. LOGC majors and minors take courses in a range of fields including mathematics, computer science, and philosophy.
Logic remains one of the core disciplines in investigations of information and computation. Indeed, logic is playing a major role in advances in computer security, database technology, networking, and software engineering. Moreover, logic has expanded its role within mathematics beyond foundational studies and now enjoys rich connections with areas as diverse as algebra, analysis, and combinatorics. In light of the current importance of the investigation of computation and information from a scientific, as well as from a technological point of view, the Major and Minor in Logic, Information, and Computation will provide students with a strong background to pursue computational aspects of the natural, biological, and social sciences, as well as preparing them for careers in information technology.
Graduates of the LOGC Program have gone on to graduate study at schools such as Columbia University, Cornell University, and University of Southern California in programs including Computer Science, Engineering, and Applied Mathematics. Many graduates have also gone straight into the workplace, working in industries such as financial services and technology in careers like system analysis, business analysis, and software engineering.
