文/ T小編

Tai Tzu-ying, Taiwanese badminton player and Tokyo Olympic silver medalist, received a PhD from the Graduate Institute of Sports Training of The University of Taipei, becoming badminton scholar “Dr. Tai” at the age of 27.

Although Tai often has to travel overseas to compete, she was able to complete her doctoral program on schedule. In her graduation speech, Tai said that increasing knowledge helps her career in sports. Athletics are very demanding, but she never gave up her studies.

Tai’s advisor described her as very ambitious, responsible, self-disciplined, and good at managing her time. Over the past few years, many competitions have been canceled due to the pandemic, so Tai has used this time to actively complete her coursework.

友善讓你懂 │ 解說:

台灣羽球一姊、也是2020東京奧運羽球的銀牌得主戴資穎,近期獲得台北市立大學競技運動訓練研究所博士學位,年僅27歲,成為羽球專業的「戴博士」。

雖然戴資穎經常需要出國參加比賽,但她依然能夠如期完成博士學業。她在畢業演說中表示,充實學業知識有助於她的運動生涯。田徑運動要求很高,但她從未放棄學業。

戴資穎的指導教授也形容她很有野心、有責任感、自律,並且善於管理自己的時間。過去幾年,因為疫情很多比賽都取消了,也讓戴資穎利用這段時間,積極完成了自己的學位課程。

輕鬆帶著走 │ 學習:

博士的英文是doctor,博士學位是doctor’s degree或是doctoral degree。

除此之外,我們也會PhD來表示博士學位,這是什麼意思呢?

PhD就是Doctor of philosophy,從拉丁文的philosophiae doctor而來,意思就是「哲學博士學位」,也泛指所有的博士學位。 但你會納悶,為什麼所有博士都是哲學博士呢?

原來,哲學一詞源自古希臘文,意謂對智慧的熱愛(Love of wisdom)。所謂哲學博士,是指獲得學位者對自己知識範疇的理論、內容及發展等都有相當的認識喔!
