I consider degree initials after one's name tacky and very gouache. If a lawyer, on law firm business cards, add the Esq. or J.D. Or if a medical doctor, add an M.D. on emails/formal business cards. BA, MA, PhD etc ... tacky. The only exclusion is if publishing an academic paper, or a current professor, then add the PhD after you name on the research paper and in a long e-mail signature with students/faculty. Otherwise, tacky tacky tacky. If you have to do anything, I would do the full e-mail signature like this: Your N. Name Phone: (212) 777-8888 E-mail: [email protected] Harvard University Class of 2015, BA in English University of Massachusetts, Class of 2017, MA in Journalism Yale University School of Law, J.D. Candidate, 2020 Some people add their degree letters everywhere and anywhere they can. I view it as tacky. My opinion, my right: your opinion, your right.
