A PhD, also called a doctorate degree, is considered to be a terminal degree in a field. You can get a PhD in English, science, the arts and many other subjects. If you don't want to get your PhD from a university that you attend, you can do one of the hundreds of online PhD programs. These will allow you to work at your own rate, and you'll graduate with your PhD.
