students who have completed a BA/BSc in linguistics, computer science,
philosophy, logic, or mathematics, and who wish to pursue the application
of formal and computationalmethods to the analysis of natural language. The
MSc will also serve as the taught year of an MPhil/Ph.D research degree in
formal grammar and computational linguistics.

-	Professor Dov Gabbay (Computer Science Department)
	logic, non-monotonic reasoning
-	Professor Ruth Kempson (Philosphy Department)
