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.

History involves a careful examination of the people, cultures, events, societies, and patterns of the past. While it can be connected with almost any other subject, it is closely related to politics, economics, psychology, and other social studies.
