Teachers Teach and Doctors Indoctrinate

Teachers teach and Doctors indoctrinate hence Doctors forcefully put information into your brains?

What do Masters do?


Medieval Education:
  • (14 years old) Latin Grammar School
  • (17 years old) Bachelor of Arts or Bachelor of Philosophy (Grammar School + 3 years)
    • If the lower faculty is named Philosophy instead of Liberal Arts then the title has Philosophy instead of Arts.
  • (20 years old) Master of Arts (Bachelor of Arts + 3 years) or Master of Philosophy (Bachelor of Philosophy + 3 years)
  • (26 years old) First Professional Degree (Master of Arts + 6 years)
    • Bachelor of Medicine
    • Bachelor of Laws
    • Bachelor of Theology
  • (29 years old) Second Professional Degree
    • Licentiate of Medicine (Bachelor of Medicine + 3 years)
    • Licentiate of Laws (Bachelor of Laws + 3 years)
    • Licentiate of Theology (Bachelor of Theology + 3 years)
  • (32 years old) Third Professional Degree
    • Doctor of Medicine (Bachelor of Medicine + 6 years or Licentiate of Medicine + 3 years)
    • Doctor of Laws (Bachelor of Laws + 6 years or Licentiate of Laws + 3 years)
    • Doctor of Theology (Bachelor of Theology + 6 years or Licentiate of Theology + 3 years)
The traditional (medieval) degree ranking: Bachelor of Arts < Master of Arts < Bachelor of Medicine < Bachelor of Laws < Bachelor of Theology < Licentiate of Medicine < Licentiate of Laws < Licentiate of Theology < Doctor of Medicine < Doctor of Laws < Doctor of Theology.

Modern Education:
  • (18 years old) High School
  • (21 years old) Three Year Undergraduate
    • Bachelor of Arts
    • Bachelor of Science
    • Bachelor of Engineering
  • (22 years old) Four Year Undergraduate
    • Master of Engineering
    • Master of Mathematics
    • others
  • (23 years old) Undergraduate First Profession Degree
    • Bachelor of Laws
    • Bachelor of Pharmacy
    • Bachelor of Architecture
    • Bachelor of Dentistry
    • others
  • (24 years old) Undergraduate First Professional Degree (direct entry)
    • Bachelor of Medicine and Bachelor of Surgery
  • (26 years old) Postgraduate First Professional Degree (undergraduate degree required)
    • Doctor of Medicine (United States) equivalent to Bachelor of Medicine and Bachelor of Surgery
    • Doctor of Pharmacy (United States) equivalent to Bachelor of Pharmacy
    • others
      • Note that United States has converted many first professional degrees to have doctor in its title. Architecture will slowly follow since new Bachelor of Architecture undergoes revision of accreditation standards.
      • There are two types of Master of Architecture: One stands as a first professional degree (Bachelor of Arts in Architecture or Bachelor of Science in Architecture is its prerequisite) and the other is a second professional degree (Bachelor of Architecture is its prerequisite).
  • (25-28 years old) Second Professional Degree (First Professional Degree + 1-2 years)
    • Master of Medicine
    • Master of Surgery
    • Master of Pharmacy
    • others
  • (27-31 years old) Third Professional Degree (Second Professional Degree + 2-3 years)
    • Doctor of Medicine (Doctor of Philosophy in Medical Sciences (United States))
    • Doctor of Pharmacy (Doctor of Philosophy in Pharmaceutical Sciences (United States))
    • others
Notice the difference between the Medieval and the Modern higher education. The first professional degree during the Medieval era requires Master of Arts as a prerequisite. When United States shift from Bachelor title to Doctor title in most of their first profession degrees, it changes the prerequisite to the completion of an undergraduate degree, but still not to the same level as the Medieval era requiring Master of Arts to enter a first professional degree program.

Note that Theology was demoted and Divinity has replaced its ranking as the most senior field. So the Doctor of Divinity is the highest ranked degree.
