I am certain we can all agree that a Ph.D. is a terminal degree. However certain other degrees that are not earned doctorates would be terminal degrees as well, the MD, the JD, the DO,OD, DPM, heck even the DC. I am told the MFA and MSW for Studio or Preforming Arts and Social Work respectively are terminal degrees. SACS feels that MLS is the terminal degree for Librarians, which is fine with me as that is my degree. Do you consider all of these terminal degrees? Would you add any, especially the MBA is that a terminal degree, I think not but others may have a differing opinion. Who decides what a terminal degree is? One would assume the relevent accrediting bodies - the ALA for librarians the National Council on Social Work Education for Social Workers, Andy Warhol for the MFA . Are there others that are the terminal degree, that are not a doctorate of any type that are accorded that status by the relevent bodies?
