  PhD \PhD\, PhD \Ph.D.\n. [Abbrfev. from L., Philosophae Doctor.]
     A scholastic degree awarded for study beyond college; the
     Doctorate degree in Philosophy. In America it is usually
     based on at least 3 years graduate study and a dissertation;
     the doctorate is the highest degree awarded by a graduate
     school, and is awarded in other fields, such as Doctor of
     Arts. The Ph.D. is broadly applicable, as in most fields of
     science and technology; -- the term philosophy being derived
     from an earlier label for experimental science as Natural
     Philosophy.
  
     Syn: Doctor of Philosophy.
