I am wondering if you could ask readers to contribute any good terminal master's programs in philosophy that are *not* designed primarily for getting people into PhD programs. So as opposed to programs like Tufts, or Wisconsin that are, to my knowledge, primarily not for people who already have a strong undergraduate background from a good institution in philosophy, I have in mind programs such as the U of Amsterdam's ILLC MSc in Logic, or Columbia's M.A. in the Philosophical Foundations of Physics. These are the kind of programs that could be valuable to someone who, despite a solid undergraduate degree in philosophy, wants to expand knowledge or skills required in a particular area of philosophy before starting a PhD. (I for example did mostly ethics and political philosophy in undergrad and am now more interested in language, logic and the philosophy of science, so am considering some programs that might help me supplement my undergraduate training with some of the more formal and technical knowledge required to really excel in these subfields of philosophy before starting a PhD).
