Archbishop Michael Layne, Ph.D., Th.D. Lutheran Orthodox Church (Catholic Church Lutheran Rite) Archdiocese of Mid America and SPCU Founder & President

I had been looking for an opportunity to complete my Post Graduate work by Distance Learning. I had been commuting to Harvard University for some time and had accumulated 52 hours towards my doctoral degree. I found SPCU on the internet and discovered them to be a credible institution. I transferred my hours from Harvard to SPCU and graduated in 2004 with a Doctor of Theology degree. I highly recommend SPCU.

Ronne Gleason, Th. D. SPCU Graduate (transfer Graduate Student from Harvard University)

At the time I enrolled in the post graduate program at SPCU I was employed by a Hospice. The independent research and study format allowed me the flexibility required to maintain a full work and on-call schedule. Since completion of the program I have taken a position as head of the Pastoral Care Department at a cardiac specialty care hospital here in Arizona. My experience with SPCU was a positive one and I would recommend this school to anyone interested in independent study. (Ph.D. in Christian Counseling)
