Doctoral Degree Programs
Ph.D., or Doctor PhD - is the highest academic degree awarded to persons who have completed the development of doctoral education program, and defended a doctorate dissertation. Analogue of the degree in the Soviet and post-Soviet education system is "Candidate of Sciences" academic degree. At the same time in some countries (USA, Canada, Europe, etc.) PhD degree is the highest one.
According to the rules of participation in the Bologna process, existed before qualifying degree - specialistand relevant academic degrees–Candidate and Doctor in the coming years will be gradually replaced with three academic degrees recognized in the world practice: Bachelor, Master and Doctor of Philosophy.
Despite the name, the PhD degree has almost nothing to do with philosophy (except historical) and is awarded in almost all fields of science (PhD in Physics, PhD in Journalism, etc.). This is related with the traditions of the medieval universities, in the standard structuresof which faculties of philosophy, law, medicine and theology were existed. So, today, doctors are awarded with Doctor of medicinedegree, lawyers - Doctor of Law, Theologists - Doctor of Theology. To all others the academic degree of Doctor of Philosophyis awarded.
