From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

This is a list of the fields of doctoral studies, as used by the National Opinion Research Center (NORC) at the University of Chicago in the United States in its annual Survey of Earned Doctorates[1][2], conducted for the National Science Foundation, and other federal agencies, in the United States.

These are fields of research-oriented doctoral studies, leading mostly to the awarding of the degrees of Doctor of Philosophy (Ph.D.), Doctor of Business Administration (D.B.A.), Doctor of Education (Ed.D. or D.Ed.), and Doctor of Science (Sc.D. or D.Sc.) in the United States. (In the academic year 2004-2005, 90.3% of the 43,354 research-oriented doctorates awarded in the U.S. are Ph.D.s; 7.0% are Ed.D.s.[3]) Studies that lead to professional doctorates, such as Doctor of Medicine (M.D.) and Doctor of Jurisprudence (J.D.), are not included.
