The illustrated guide to a Ph.D.

Every fall, I explain to a fresh batch of Ph.D. students what a Ph.D. is.

It's hard to describe it in words.

So, I use pictures.

Read below for the illustrated guide to a Ph.D.



Imagine a circle that contains all of human knowledge:



By the time you finish elementary school, you know a little:



By the time you finish high school, you know a bit more:



With a bachelor's degree, you gain a specialty:



A master's degree deepens that specialty:



Reading research papers takes you to the edge of human knowledge:



Once you're at the boundary, you focus:



You push at the boundary for a few years:



Until one day, the boundary gives way:



And, that dent you've made is called a Ph.D.:



Of course, the world looks different to you now:



So, don't forget the bigger picture:


Keep pushing.
