What is the exact grammatical format for listing degrees such as MA or Ph.D after one's name using commas or periods?
If the degree is in a very specfic field (such as business or social work), the correct format would be: John Smith, MSW or Carol Jones, MBA. If the Masters is in a broader …field (English or History, for example), the format would be: John Smith, MA, History or Carol Jones, MA,English. PhD is always noted as "Ph.D" as in: Carol Jones, Ph.D, Social Work. .
Ph.D finances Usually nothing. The university will offer a package of assistantships, fellowships, and/or grants, which usually includes a tuition waiver. "Usuall…y" is a key word here. Always ask before you accept a school's offer. One school I went to offered only $1500.00 in assistance-the rest had to be paid by the student. I transferred, and now I have to pay no tuition at all, and have a paid assistantship. The sign that the school's program is solid and committed to getting and keeping good students is the fact that they offer to help their students financially. Of course, you can also take out Stafford Loans (student loans), up to $138,500 for a lifetime maximum. This might help to cover a gap if the school's funding is not quite enough to get you through a semester.
It depends on the college, and the job. A community college in a rural area with a low budget might pay $40,000 (or less) to a new instructor, while an exclusive privat…e college might pay someone else with a PhD in a rarer field or who has a higher administrative position six figures (or more). Here is a salary study, but again it differs by ranked schools, by the official titles, and so forth... but it might give you an idea of the average, if you have additional information: http://chronicle.com/stats/aaup/aaupresults.php
Answer Do not use Dr. before the names of those who hold honorary degrees only. References to honorary degrees must specify the degree was honorary.
Yes you can, however I would make sure it will be recognized back here in the US.
You can get certificates, associates degrees, bachelors degrees (BA and BFA) and masters degrees in fashion design.
I would have to say no. Most CLEP credit is designed for undergraduates. There maybe a way you can test out of certain classes (which may use CLEP exams), but those will more …than likely be prerequisites to your Masters/PhD.
Only in some most European countries. Them being DSc (Doctorate of Sciences) and DLitt (Doctorate of Letters)
I have heard three percent of the u.s. Population has a PhD
282 throughout the us ive been searching which ones but i couldn`t find anything That number -- 282 -- is way too low. There are over 20,000 accredited degree programs offe…red by some more than 8,000 colleges and universities in the US which are accredited by agencies approved by either the US Department of Education (USDE), or the USDE-sanctioned Council for Higher Education (CHEA). The Chronicle of Higher Education, alone, in 2010, listed and ranked some 5,000 PhD programs in 59 fields... and that was, by no means, all of them. Based on the ratio of 5,000 PhD programs to all degree programs, I would surmise that as many as 2,000 accredited colleges/universites in the US offer some kind of PhD program. Of course, it would have to be properly researched to say, for sure; but if one includes all doctoral-level programs, including even those not titled "PhD" or "Ph.D" or "Ph.D." (so then, for example, Doctor of Theology (DTh or ThD) degrees, or Doctor of Ministry (DMin) degrees, or Doctor of Pharmacy (PharmD) degrees, or a large number of other degrees which have "Doctor of" in their names) then the number of both schools and degrees skyrockets, I dare say. But, one way or the other, 282 is just way, way, way too low. That we know, even without doing a stitch of research.
PHD, DR and other earned identifiers are called "Titles". Mr and Mrs are Honorific titles.
Is it legal to use the designation Dr in front of your name if you have earned an integrated PHd degree?
yes!and they should call you "doctor" not just "doc":-)
Yes, if they have already achieved their PhD. If they have not, then no. They are just PhD students or post-graduate students
His legal name was Theodor Seuss Geisel.
Is it illegal (punishable by law) to use the designation Dr. or Ph.D. if you have NOT earned a Ph.D degree?
She didn't. She got her American degrees while living and studying in the States and her Oxford degree while living in Oxford, Great Britain.
