The PhD is a doctoral degree, specifically called a "doctor of philosophy" degree. This is misleading because PhD holders are not necessarily philosophers (unless they earned their degree in philosophy!). That said, PhD recipients are able to engage in thought experiments, reason about problems, and solve problems in sophisticated ways.

In a college mathematics major, algebra courses will focus on ring theory and algebraic geometry. The geometry most often studied is differential geometry, which focuses on the properties of curves and surfaces. Logic is another subject that is often offered within a mathematics program.
