    FAQs

    Honorary Doctorate is a degree given by a college or university to someone who is not a student but who has done something important.

    An honorary degree acknowledges someone who a university committee deems worth honouring, by offering them a special (albeit mostly symbolic) position, in the university community. A degree that is awarded honoris causa (because Latin boosts snootiness) has never conferred the right to use the degree.

    An honorary degree may be awarded to an outstanding individual who satisfies one or more of the following criteria: Eminence, in the course of a career, in some field of scholarship, in public service, or in an artistic, literary, governmental, religious, financial, or other endeavours.

    Universities have the power to confer honorary degrees for which proposals have to be approved by their academic and executive councils before final approval is granted by Chancellors and Visitors.

    A PhD is an academic degree focused on original research, data analysis, and the evaluation of theory. A professional doctorate focuses on applying research to practical problems, formulating solutions to complex issues, and designing effective professional practices within your field.

    The person receiving the title of “honorary doctorate” can use the abbreviation “Dr. hc”. If you already have an academic doctorate degree, you can use the abbreviation “Dr.
