PhDs in Johannesburg in South Africa 2020/2021

The PhD is a doctoral degree, specifically called a "doctor of philosophy" degree. This is misleading because PhD holders are not necessarily philosophers (unless they earned their degree in philosophy!). That said, PhD recipients are able to engage in thought experiments, reason about problems, and solve problems in sophisticated ways.

A Master is a degree that demonstrates students have completed advanced studies in their field of training. This program is available for students with an undergraduate degree, and it often takes one to two years to complete.
