PHD (Piled Higher & Deeper) is a webcomic by Jorge Cham that has been running since 1997.

The characters are a bunch of graduate students at Stanford University. They obsess about ever getting their theses completed, struggle to make ends meet with their meager stipends, wonder why life is passing them by, and slack off while their supervisors aren't looking.


Tropes used in PHD include:


Jorge Cham: "But I have a Ph.D.! I'm giving lectures at universities! I have a Ph.D.!"
Border Agent: "Sorry. The rules say doctors are allowed in, but you're not a real doctor, are you?"
*He actually said this.
