What Exactly Is a Doctorate ? (Visual Joke)

Ever wondered what getting a doctorate really means? Matt Might, at the University of Utah, explains it perfectly in this graphic presentation that starts with a simple circle.

It's hard to describe it in words. So, I use pictures, read below for the illustrated guide to a Ph.D.

Imagine a circle that contains all of human knowledge:

doctorate and phd


By the time you finish elementary school, you know a little:




By the time you finish high school, you know a bit more:




With a bachelor's degree, you gain a specialty:




A master's degree deepens that specialty:




Reading research papers takes you to the edge of human knowledge:




Once you're at the boundary, you focus:




You now push at the boundary for a few years:




Until one day, the boundary gives way:




And, that dent you've made is called a Ph.D.




Of course, the world looks different to you now:




But, don't forget the bigger picture:



Keep Pushing
