I am posting what i know, i am a graduate of UMS.

One cannot get a PhD without the Masters and one cannot get a Masters without the Bachelors.

So it must go in order.... Associates (2yr), Bachelors (4yr), Masters (6yr) then Doctorate (PhD or DD)(7+yrs)
The years i placed here are the average (accredited) college years, which does not apply here. This school does not work by credit hours. This college also bi-passes the Associates degree. Unless that changes.

I do have good news.... I was accepted at Liberty University to now work on my Masters in Arts of Marriage & Family Therapy (Psychotherapy). My credits from this college did get me at least a Bachelors. I only had an Associates from ITT-Tech.
That is great news for UMS. My courses were recognized by a government accredited College. I did not have to go and finish my undergraduate degree, they considered me a graduate. WHOOHOO!

Thank you UMS.

You cannot go straight to Ph.D/Doctorate

You are required to work through Bachelor's & Masters before working on your Ph.D

A Bachelors & Masters from another school, Metaphysical or Secular does not qualify for skipping these Ba & Ma, though they will most certinally help in working through the coursework.
