Doctors Honoris Causae

A person holding an honorary doctorate (Lat. doctor honoris causa, dr. h.c.) is a person to whom the faculty of a university has conferred the title of an honorary doctor because of some achievement. The honorary doctor does not hold a doctoral degree in that faculty. Instead, the honorary doctor has equivalent accomplishments outside the academic world or has promoted scientific research exceptionally well in other ways. The title of an honorary doctor is the highest tribute a university can pay to an individual.

The title of doctor honoris causa can be conferred to representatives of other fields of science or to distinguished international research colleagues. Cultural personalities, politicians or other notables can also be conferred the title of doctor honoris causa.

The title of a doctor honoris causa can only be conferred in the conferment ceremony of a university. The first part of the abbreviation of the honorary doctor’s title depends on the doctoral degree that is being conferred.
