Doctor of Philosophy in Professional Counseling

Offered through the Amridge University School of Human Services, the Doctor of Philosophy (Ph.D.) Degrees programs in Marriage and Family Therapy and in Professional Counseling are 60-semester hour rigorous research oriented programs beyond the Master's degree. The number of hours required for the completion of one of these doctorates will depend on the number of graduate hours the student has already taken before entering the program.

The purpose of this program is not to prepare individuals for professional licensure, the applicant has already completed the course work required for professional licensure. In order to obtain a professional licensure the additional courses should be taken by the applicants.

This program mainly focuses on traditional and non-traditional extended learning delivery system. Broadly put, upon completion of either program, the student will have an advanced degree with both therapeutic expertise and scholarship.

The program includes intensive studies in theories of counseling and therapy, human development, problems with abuse and addiction, cultural diversity, and research. The students will take their courses partly in traditional class settings and partly online over the Internet.

The University provides live classroom broadcasts with video and audio transmission for an academic residency option for the Ph.D. program. This live Internet online transmission permits teacher-student interaction and discussion. This interaction between faculty member and students is a concomitant synchronized period in a traditional classroom. This synchronous learning alternative is the New Academic Residency Option open to Amridge University students who live at a distance from the main campus. Amridge University maintains a record of each student's residency requirements in the program. The students should complete this program in 4 years; however, the completion time depends on factors such as the number of credits transferred, the pace at which courses are taken, and the time necessary to research and write the dissertation.

Graduates of the program will have:

1. gained an ability to conduct original research, including both quantitative and qualitative methodologies;

2. had a comprehensive knowledge of the current status of research in marriage and family therapy or psychology;

3. learned the psychodynamics of mental illness and techniques to treat these disorders;

4. had the ability to function as a scholar/ practitioner as evidenced by critical analysis of the studentís own practice setting;

5. applied family therapy practice or counseling skills and research in teaching or clinical practice.

These outcomes are assessed through completion of the courses work, completion of the comprehensive examination, and completion of the dissertation.

Admission to the Amridge University Ph.D. Degree Program in either Marriage and Family Therapy or Professional Counseling will be offered to prospective students who have demonstrated the intellectual ability, the preparation, and the motivation for a scholarly vocation. The basis of this determination will be through the admissions application process where applicants for the Ph.D. Degree Program in Marriage and Family Therapy or Professional Counseling must, as a minimum, meet eight admission requirements before being considered for admission to the program.
