The logic requirement for graduate students can be fulfilled in several ways.
(1) Standardly, students attend lectures for PHIL 250, and enroll with the instructor of the class in an independent study. Graduate students are expected to undertake additional work so that their coursework is at the 300- or 400- level.
Other possible ways to fulfill the logic requirement are listed below; however, whether or not coursework falling under the following rubrics does fulfill the requirement is at the discretion of the logic advisor.
(2) Coursework at another institution deemed equivalent to or exceeding that described in (1).
(3) Coursework at another institution deemed equivalent to part of that described in (1), plus completion of some portion of that described in (1).
(4) A 300- or 400-level class in formal logic taught at Northwestern University. However, no course used to fulfill the logic requirement may also be used to fulfill a part of the language requirement.Back to top
