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.
The natural sciences deal with the understanding of natural phenomena through observations and predictions. The scientific method and the laws of nature may be covered. Natural science branches include areas such as physics and biology, and there are many more.

Ph.D. in Environmental Toxicology
The rapid development of many countries within the region has led to the widespread use of chemicals in Industry, Agriculture, Public Health, as well as in our daily lives. This has resulted in significant chemical contamination and deterioration of the environment, with unavoidable impacts on the economy, society, and the health of the people.In addressing these problems, there is a pressing need for experts in the field of Environmental Toxicology, which is a field requiring knowledge in several inter-related sciences. In keeping with the national policy to generate high-quality personnel in the fields of Science and Technology, CGI thus offers a graduate program in Environmental Toxicology to address this need to train a new generation of scientists that will become the driving force for the country, and region, in the years to come....

Ph.D. in Applied Biological Sciences: Environmental Health
Nowadays, it is known that the environment and health are inseparably interrelated. Environmental pollutants in the environment will affect human health sooner or later. This discipline will provide the foundation for understanding how environmental pollutants affect health. Knowledgeable, capable, and technically skilled personnel, that have both a practical and theoretical understanding of environmental health, are needed to undertake research and academic work so that they can apply their knowledge and skill to identify and prevent health and environmental problems. Skill graduates are also needed to identify or synthesize chemical or biological substances to cure or prevent diseases and to use their knowledge and expertise to add value to the natural resources.The program aims to prepare students for careers in public health, drug discovery and development and related fields that deal with the application of modern biology to practical contemporary problems. The program is research oriented and focuses on method development and more detailed technical issues. Graduates will be trained to be both thinkers and practitioners.... [-]
