Doctorate Degrees

A doctorate degree is the highest level of learning a student may accomplish. Doctorates may offered at most public and private universities, and may either be research-based-these are referred to as a PhD, or Doctor of Philosophy, in one's given field-or professional, such as Medical Doctor (MD) or Doctor of Engineering (EngD). A doctorate degree may take anywhere from two to six years to complete, with much of that time devoted to research for a final dissertation, and a bachelor degree is normally required for admittance.
