A Doctor of Philosophy (PhD, Ph.D., or DPhil; Latin Philosophiae Doctor) is the highest academic degree awarded by universities in most countries. Ph.D.s are awarded for programs across the whole breadth of academic fields. The completion of a Ph.D. is often a requirement for employment as a university professor, researcher, or scientist in many fields. Individuals who have earned a Doctor of Philosophy degree may, in most jurisdictions, use the title of "Doctor" (often abbreviated "Dr") or, in non-English speaking countries, variants such as "Dr. phil." with their name, and may use post-nominal letters such as "Ph.D.", "PhD" or "DPhil" (depending on the awarding institute).
