From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The degree of Doctor of Humane Letters (Latin: Litterarum humanarum doctor; D.H.L.; or L.H.D.) is always conferred as an honorary degree, usually to those who have distinguished themselves in areas other than science (these normally receive the Doctor of Science), government (these often receive a Doctor of Laws degree), literature (these often receive a Doctor of Letters degree) or religion (these often receive a Doctor of Divinity D.D. degree in locations where American English is spoken, or a Doctor of Ministry D.Min. degree in locations where British English is spoken; knowledge of the location is important, because the alternate degree is an earned degree in both locations).
