A doctorate degree is the greatest academic honor; it signifies that you have mastered a particular field of study or vocation. Extensive study and articulation are required for the degree.
There are two types of doctorates-
1. Research-Oriented Doctorate (PhDs)
The most popular title for a Research-oriented (commonly known as PhD) doctorate is a Doctor of Philosophy.
2. Professional Doctorate: an application-oriented program
A professional doctorate (also known as an applied doctorate or terminal doctorate) is a degree that focuses on implementing a subject in real-world situations.
