Natural Sciences

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.

Natural Science is the field of science that studies the natural processes in the world. A PhD in Natural Science takes natural science studies to the next level, providing a deep understanding of these processes and how they affect life on the planet.
