A PhD is the abbreviation for Doctor of philosophy. This degree is a post graduate program delivered to a high level student researcher who has done deep research in a specific field or subject.

More than just a study of one religion, theology generally covers a variety of religious and philosophical traditions, seeking a better understanding of the divine. While it can be studied in order to enter a particular religious order, it also provides students with an understanding of people’s beliefs in general.

Universities in the US dominate the world rankings and the country also offers a wide variety of exciting study locations. State university systems are partially subsidized by state governments, and may have many campuses spread around the state, with hundreds of thousands of students.
