An honorary degree or a degree honoris causa (Latin: "for the sake of the honor") is an academic degree for which a university (or other degree-awarding institution) has waived the usual requirements, such as matriculation, residence, study and the passing of examinations. The degree is typically a doctorate or, less commonly, a master's and bachelor's degree, and may be awarded to someone who has no prior connection with the academic institution. The degree is often conferred as a way of honouring a distinguished visitor's contributions to a specific field or to society in general.
An honorary degree is entirely legitimate and the title conferred may be used like any other. The degree is awarded to those who have demonstrated a Honoris Causa, or cause to be honored. This program is offered only to a select group of 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.The degree is not recognized by employers as having the same stature as a corresponding earned degree and should not be represented as such. It is sometimes recommended that such degrees be listed in one's CV as an award and not in their education section.
NMU believes that weightage should be given for learning that occurs outside the classroom by building upon previous accomplishments. Degrees are granted based on evaluation of past accomplishment and competencies, and will be done on an individual basis by qualified experts. Recipients of honorary degrees do not earn the degree through academic achievements, rather with generous and altruistic actions or lifetime accomplishments that benefit a community, nation or humanity in general.
