First Ph.D. Program to Begin in September


The University will launch its first Ph.D. program and a new master’s degree program this fall. According to Dr. James Houck, the Ph.D. in Pastoral Counseling is a “spiritually integrated, research-based program that equips scholars and practitioners for leadership roles in the current landscape of mental health challenges.”


Houck, the program director, believes that the weekend format will be an appealing feature of Neumann’s first Ph.D. program. Classes are scheduled on Friday evenings and Saturdays, typically running for five or six weekends in a 14-week semester. The courses are enhanced with online assignments as well as practical and research assignments.


The program combines psychology and spirituality, and provides master’s level students with the opportunity to obtain clinical preparation toward licensure.


The M.S. in Accounting degree program focuses on forensics and fraud detection. It can be completed in 18-21 months in a blend of in-class and online study. It does not require that students have an undergraduate degree in business to enroll.
