Degree: Human Resources
Graduation Year: 2015

I feel that the graduate program allows me as a person to have an equal opportunity to learn with the small class sizes and availability. The pros of my graduate program is the great instructors who works hard to provide excellent workshops with detail information, life experiences, and real world issues today. The con is classes last only 6 weeks.

Degree: Human Services
Graduation Year: 2016

The only real problem I am having is our ability to pay the bills and provide for our kids while trying to keep money available to get to school and back, and the amount of debt I will be in when I have graduated. I am hoping to acquire the scholarships needed to cover as much tuition as possible. I love going to University of Phoenix, the program fits my needs as a full time mom perfectly and the curriculum is fabulous.

Degree: Business
Graduation Year: 2016

The pros of my graduate program is that we have a learning team in every class. Everyone is so different and have specialties in many areas. This is extremely helpful when doing homework assignments. I have not faced any cons at this time. I got my bachelors degree from UOP and I enjoy the layout and teachers.

Degree: Nursing
Graduation Year: 2015

I don't mean to sound like an advertisement, but I honestly feel, University of Phoenix provides you with all the resources you need to be successful. I share this with anyone you asks. From the academic support provided by faculty and ecampus tools, to the friendly reminders from academic and financial advisors both via email and phone. I can't even miss a class without getting an email and phone call from my advisor to check if everything is okay. From entering the program to the amazing commencement you really feel the support. That is what brought me back to pursue my MSN after having completed my BSN. If I have to mention a con it would be expense. Although expensive, they do provide financial aid support in addition to providing sites to apply for scholarships.

Degree: Marriage & Family Therapy
Graduation Year: 2016

The University of Phoenix Southern California is a great choice for a working student. The graduate program of Marriage Family Therapy is a rigorous program because the program focuses on one class at a time. Classes are on campus and are every six weeks to eight week courses. The courses are taught by LMFTs or PHds. therefore an extremely high standard is expected. It is important to note that cohorts or learning teams are a requirement therefore it is important to learn to get along with different personalities and remain professionals. The great part of this graduate program is no thesis but be advise there is individual papers due every week which is the same as a thesis. Also there is learning team projects due almost ever week too. There is the rigor of two huge check points in the program and they are called portfolios. Portfolio I is the entrance into the program which is six weeks at the very beginning and is a competency for the program. Portfolio II is the midway check point if the student is mastering the classes and it is a tough experience and many people do not make it but the professors are supportive. The only negative issue with this type of program is the usage of e-books because in the Marriage Family Therapy field it is important to keep your books for reference.

Degree: MBA
Graduation Year: 2015

I go to a ground-based campus, and the curriculum is fantastic, just the right amount of book and practical application of work. In the end it will make me a more well-rounded individual and manager.

Degree: Psychology
Graduation Year: 2015

University of Phoenix works around the amount of individuals in a program at a certain time, so if I want to do an on-campus class there must be at 9-10 others too that need that class so most of the time my program is online which is alright. They have update their online forum and webpage to a more technological savvy but it still has some kinks to work out. The graduate program is hard work but worth it, the teachers are a step-up from the Bachelor quality teachers they have at University of Phoenix.

Degree: Nursing
Graduation Year: 2015

The pros to attending University of Phoenix are I can still work full-time and attend school which is a huge plus for me because I am the only wage earner in my family and could not afford to reduce my wages in order to attend school. Another pro is the University of Phoenix accepted many of my transfer credits, reducing the length of my degree program. The only con for me is the distance I have to travel to attend the Phoenix campus, it is 44 miles one way, but well worth the travel!

Degree: Business
Graduation Year: 2014

I feel this school has a lot to offer and gives the student back what they put into it. This college gives adults the opportunity to work on a degree while working and raising a family.
