  1. Doctorate

    A doctorate is an academic degree or professional degree that, in most countries, qualifies the holder to teach at the university level in the specific field of his or her degree, or to work in a specific profession. In some countries, the highest degree in a given field is called a terminal degree, although this is by no means universal, practice varies from country to country, and a distinction is sometimes made between terminal professional degrees and terminal research degrees. The term doctorate comes from the Latin docere, meaning "to teach." The "licentiate" degree shortened from the full Latin title licentia docendi, means "teaching licence".
