Your "Cause to be Honored"

An honorary doctorate is entirely legitimate and the title conferred may be used like any other. The degree is awarded to those who have demonstrated an Honoris Causa, or cause to be honored. For a small "support honorarium" (donation) you may participate in our Honorary Doctorate Program.

This program is offered only to a select group of highly accomplished individuals such as yourself. As a professional, a degree -- or additional degree -- will allow you to make a greater impact. The expedient way of showing the world your knowledge, abilities, experience and talents is with your degree and use of your titles.

We were the very first major, world-class university to offer such a unique Doctoral Degree program; and we have done so since 1988. Many leading economists are convinced the U.S. and indeed the entire world is on the brink of economic disaster.
No country has the financial stability it had just a few short years ago...and the situation is getting worse. Run-away inflation...rising taxes, lowered job earnings...increasing consumer prices, the uncontrolled printing of money by the Federal Reserve and Central Banks around the world...and the bail-outs of banks, central banks, governments and in some cases: entire countries! The situation is only getting worse. Get your advanced degree now; start promoting yourself and your abilities and start earning more money today while there is still time.

Our degree recipients have been thanking us for providing this opportunity to them for over 30 years now.

If you are serious about furthering your educational goals and earning potential; now is the time to do it because of our methodology, philosophy, ease of process and historically low rates. Please read the instructions then: apply/enroll now. We are currently reworking our website. So it is best to email/text/call and we can answer your questions, and get you applied/enrolled.

Please take the time to read the below information carefully to gain some insight into the 'honorary' process and then contact this office as soon as possible so we can start the process and get your degree program started and completed for you.

Ever wonder if you can receive your Doctoral Degree based entirely upon what you already know? Yes the University of Berkley can absolutely accommodate you.

We are the only university that has a specialized program to handle (specifically dedicated to) conferring and awarding the degree and title: Honorary Doctorate - the title of which carries with it all the privileges and benefits of a traditional academic doctoral degree.

Also: Due to recent protocol and academic regulation changes, if you wish the: Doctor of Philosophy ~ Honoris Causa, the title: Doctor of Philosophy (or any other Doctoral Degree ~ see below ***) need no longer be followed with: "Honoris Causa" in subscript. In other words: The Diploma conferred upon being awarded this honor is a typical Doctoral Diploma; it does not state "Honoris Causa" or "Honorary" on it. You may see a picture of it here:

The Honorary Doctoral degree is a legal degree and title and can be used for any purpose that an academic degree can be used for. You may legally use the term doctor (before your name: Dr. or after your name Ph.D.)

In the past this 'luxury' or specialty service was only offered by traditional 'Ivy League' Colleges/Universities...and were only 'awarded' to those of whom were capable of building a new 'Football Stadium', or donating the money to build a new Library, etc.; or perhaps if you were a pre-eminent leader in your field, a 'movie star', popular politician or government official. You see, then the University would give an honorary degree in return for you giving the commencement address; in this way more people would attend the function and the university would enjoy higher status and enhanced enrollments. We at the University of Berkley have: 'leveled the playing field'. We make this option available to everyone who fits our criteria; in other words, anyone who is qualified, or deserving.

The only qualifying criteria are two-fold:

  • What have you done that we should honor you? ('Honoris Causa' ~ Latin for: 'cause to be honored')
  • Make a small contribution to the school to help fund the "Honoris Causa" Doctoral program, and provide you with a life-time of support.

We have been the premiere non-traditional, non-residential, degree-granting authority since 1988; from that time forward we have consistently offered the lowest tuition rates of any accredited world-class university in the world. University of Berkley has been incorporated and proudly holds the coveted ".edu" University TLD (Top Level Domain) and we have been in the teaching business continually since 1988. We have tens of thousands of satisfied graduates (alumni members).
Many of Berkley's protocols and program paradigms have been the basis for how almost ALL other modern (online) schools function; even the much publicized, University of Phoenix.

Our Honorary Doctoral Degree programs are accepted very well all over the world. They are very well recognized in U.S.- India-Canada-Europe-China-Asia-Middle East.
We have graduate students attending class/and or teaching at: Harvard, MIT, Cambridge, Princeton, Columbia, Stanford, Loyola, and Oxford Universities among others; as well as Indian Institute of Management, (Ahmedabad, Bangalore, Calcutta, and Lucknow); Indian School of Business, (Hyderabad ) the Pasteur Institute of Iran and King Fahd Hospital - Riyadh, Saudi Arabia.

Also, if you are not in the United States, we can supply you with an official government "apostille"...legalizing your degree for anywhere in the world as per the Hague convention.

Being one of the first and most "Non-Traditional" schools in existence, we are proud to list among our Alumni or Conferees the following:

  • 2 Former U.S. Presidents
  • 1 Prime Minister and 2 current E.U. Nation Presidents
  • 8 European Union 'MPs" (Members of Parliament)
  • 4 United Nations Ambassadors
  • 1 Former New York City Mayor,
  • Heads of State-multiple countries: UAE, India, China, Indonesia, Malaysia, Italy, U.S.A., Greece, Russia, UK, Latvia, Belgium, Ireland, Chile, (and other governments around the world.)
  • Dr. Stephen Hawking's, “Lucasian-Chair” Personal and Research assistant. (The 'Lucasian-Chair' of Mathematics at Cambridge University) is a position originally held by Sir Isaac Newton.
  • 2 preeminent CERN physicists
  • A doctoral level research assistant of: Dr. Alan Guth (Trinity College, Cambridge)

We hope you will join us and the many thousands of other graduates both domestically and internationally who have advanced their careers and bettered their lives with prestigious degrees from our University.

At this point we just need some additional administrative information about you filled out and submitted as well as a small "honorarium" (contribution) from you to complete the process.
