In 2004 Andreas Scheuer obtained the title "Kleiner Doktorgrad", translated "Small Doctorate", for completing his thesis Political communication of the CSU within Bavaria. This academic title is on the same level as a master's degree and not the equivalent of a full doctorate. It enables the person to use the title PhDr., Scheuer, however, used the full German doctorate title Dr., which is against the law in Germany (exceptions Bavaria and Berlin state), including in political election campaigns. After some public discussions Andreas Scheuer declared to not use any title anymore.
