  Doctor of Philosophy - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
In some countries, a Ph.D. candidate is required to present an oral defense of his thesis, known in the UK as a viva (short for viva voce, Latin for "by live voice") before a committee.
The Ph.D. is often the topic of scholarly debate and criticism, given its almost exclusive concern with research and publication to the alleged neglect of numerous other faculty responsibilities that include teaching, collegial evaluation, collective and individual curricular planning, etc. Solutions have met with varying degrees of success.
While the Ph.D. is the most common doctoral degree, and even often (mis)understood to be synonymous with the term “doctorate,” the U.S. Department of Education and the U.S. National Science Foundation (NSF) recognize numerous doctoral degrees as equivalent, and do not discriminate between them.

 Theatre PhD | School of English, Film and Theatre | Victoria University of Wellington
In the words of the University Calendar, a PhD thesis "demonstrates the candidate's ability to carry out independent research" and must also be "a significant contribution to the knowledge or understanding of a field of study." As well as intelligence and research aptitude, the degree requires considerable dedication and tenacity on the candidate's part.
PhD candidates pursue a course of full-time study for a minimum of two calendar years and, usually, a maximum of four calendar years.
PhD students may also be advised to include relevant courses (for example, in a historical period or a foreign language) as part of their course of study.

 Notes On The PhD Degree
Usually, in preparing for Ph.D. work in a given field, a student must earn both a Bachelor's and Master's degree (or their equivalent) in that field or in a closely related field.
To complete a Ph.D., each student must present results from their research to the faculty in a lengthy, formal document called a dissertation (more popularly referred to as a thesis).
If it is, a Ph.D. degree is the standard path to your chosen career (a few people have managed to obtain a research position without a Ph.D., but they are the exception, not the rule).

 Master's or PhD ??   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-22)
PhDs are given a benefit of a doubt over Masters when it comes to things like promotion, project assignment etc. That being said, when considering people for projects, managers usually actually look at past experience and reputation.
The other differences are more subtle; often someone with a PhD is more likely to understand new, path-breaking technology faster than someone with a MS -- purely because a lot of the PhD training is geared towards this.
So, all in all, Phds lose out on 3 years or more of money making and living the good life (yeah, right; 9 to 5 job, followed by a frozen dinner and a beer).
