Aims: The doctoral studies shall, at minimum, guarantee the acquisition by the doctoral students of the basic competencies which are in the Spanish Qualifications Framework for Higher Education, specifically: systematic understanding of a field of study of legal sciences, and mastery of its skills and methods of research; ability to conceive, design or create, implement and adapt a substantial process of research and creation; ability to make a critical and assessment analysis, and synthesis of new and complex ideas, as well as communication with the academic and scientific community and society in general about their fields of knowledge; and and ability to promote, within academic and professional contexts, scientific, technological, social, artistic or cultural advance in a knowledge-based society. Specifically, the completion of the Doctoral Studies in Logic and Philosophy of Science opens the way for: a) to be part of research groups already consolidate, both national and international, in the fields of the specialisation. b) to opt for the development of teaching and research activities in Higher Education Centres. c) to provide generalist professionals highly qualified and with great capacity of adaptation to different job posts to the different autonomous communities, from the business sector of human resources to cultural, scientific and journalistic management.

Description: The Doctoral Programme in Logics and Philosophy of Science will allow the doctors in the different fields of the area of logics and philosophy of science. The benefit of having doctors trained in this issues is that this training contributes to the development of a society highly trained and which will have professionals highly qualified for formulating, arguing and solving elaborately complex problems. Moreover, the research lines included in this programme already have produced research results that have been transferred in knowledge to public organisations in charge of making decisions. On the other hand, many works coming from these lines have already been published in prestigious international journals.
