The Ph.D. is the highest degree awarded by universities in the United States. Its primary purpose is to validate that its possessor can perform state-of-the-art research on the frontiers of human knowledge, and to intelligently manage the research of others. The Academic Council sets institutional rules on all the Ph.D. programs at the Naval Postgraduate School: see Academic Council Policy Manual, Section 5.4. The departmental rules described here supplement, but do not supplement, institutional rules.
