Doctor Artium


Explanation:
There is such a thing as a Doctor Artium, but you generally won't find it at South African universities. After Magister Artium, South African art students generally specialise, so the degree won't be called a DA but rather a D Litt or D Phil or D Theol or whatever the specialisation might be.

Peer comments on this answer (and responses from the answerer)
disagree  lexispro: It seems unlikely that there will be any reference to a doctorate on the certificate of a BA degree. Could this be a misprint? Or D/A for "document against acceptance" in some transferred sense?
