    Necesito traducir un titulo de Doctorado y mi duda es ¿en Inglés la sigla Ph D se aplica a todos los doctorados o solamente en Filosofía? Desde ya,gracias.

    En Estados Unidos he visto que a muchos los doctorados los designan con Ph. D., no necesariamente el doctorado es en filosofía. Mira estos ejemplos: 1, 2, 3.
    Ph. D. indica el nivel/grado de los estudios no el campo en que uno se especializa.

    ¿De qué especialidad es el título del doctorado que tienes que traducir?

    PhD means a doctorate degree in science, not only philosophy. Could be mathematics, linguistics, biochemistry etc...

    There are other professional doctorates that are not PhD:
    MD - medical doctor
    PharmD - doctor of pharmacy
    JD - Juris Doctor (lawyer)
    DDS - Doctor of Dental Surgery
    DMD - Doctor of Dental Medicine... etc...

    So a medical doctor can also have a scientific doctorate (say, microbiology) and his title would be John Smith, MD, PhD

    Espero que sirva

    Apparently, there are two different doctorates in education: PhD in Education (scientific degree) and EdD (professional degree). I'm not sure what the difference is, but look at this website and see if you can find which one is a better match.

    Ph.D. in Education
    • General Program
    • Adult Education Leadership
    • Community College Leadership
    • Curriculum, Instruction, and Assessment
    • Early Childhood Education
    • Educational Technology
    • Higher Education
    • K-12 Educational Leadership
    • Special Education
    • Self-Designed
    Doctor of Education (Ed.D.)
    • Administrator Leadership for Teaching and Learning
    • Higher Education and Adult Learning
    • Teacher Leadership
    May be there are educators on this site who would know the exact difference...
