Misc. Photographers

The American Council on Education appoints a Committee on Academic Costumes and Ceremonies. In 1986, the committee updated the code and added a sentence clarifying the use of the color dark blue for the Doctor of Philosophy (Ph.D.) degree. The Code of Academic Regalia outlines the shape and color of academic regalia. The robe should be black in color with trimming in the color of the advanced degree (Ph.D.s wear dark blue trim, Doctorates in Music wear pink trim, and light blue trim for a Doctorate in Education.). Additional edging is in the color of the discipline (Science is represented by Gold. See the list below for more colors associated with different disciplines.). The academic hood has colors representing the institution that awarded the advanced degree. Some schools have created their own special, colored robes (use the pulldown menu below to see robes that deviate from the Code of Academic Regalia). DSCN0890 DSCN0893
