I am starting a PhD in computer science, and have noticed that a number of classmates will write on LinkedIn or their academic websites that they are getting a “PhD in Machine Learning” or “PhD in Artificial Intelligence” and so on. Is this common/acceptable to write “PhD in [Area of Interest/Expertise]” instead of your home department?
