Amridge University, formerly Southern Christian University, is one of the online schools that offer an online Ph.D. program. The university is accredited by the Commission on Colleges of the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools, to award one with a number of degrees including Doctorates in a number of fields. The School of Human Services offers a Ph.D. in Marriage and Family Therapy, and a Ph.D. in Professional Counseling. The Turner School of Theology enables one to become a Doctor of Ministry or a Doctor of Philosophy in Biblical Studies.

It is the goal of the School of Human Services to prepare its students for careers and professions that are focused on providing services and support for the well-being of individuals, families, churches, and society in general, all within the spirit of Christian services. Both the Ph.D. in Marriage Counseling and Family Therapy and the Ph.D. in Professional Counseling are geared toward assisting Christian communities as well as the general public.

The Turner School of Theology prepares students for the ministerial and teaching professions and for effective voluntary positions, through academic and practical studies. Not only does one receive a well grounded academic education in the various topics of Theology, but a real feel of how to apply the studies to different services in the community.
