Student & Graduate Reviews

4.83 out of 5.0
Degree: Business
Graduation Year: 2015

I feel that the University of Phoenix caters to my needs as a student. I am a seasoned student that has a family, works, and has a home to run while I am getting my education. The University of Phoenix's graduate program lets me be able to do what I need to do to succeed. I can come and go off of thier site as often as I feel necessary, to do my work in a timely fashion, makes me feel comfortable, gives me the tools I need to do the work right, and has many different people that have many different and good ideas. I am a self driven person and feel like I dont need a professor breathing down my back to get the work done. This has been a wonderful experience.

Degree: Human Services
Graduation Year: 2015

I am an online student, so most of these questions did not pertain to me.

Degree: Information Technology
Graduation Year: 2016

The only con I feel of the graduate program is the same as the bachelor program, learning teams. The teams don't tend to be effective and are more of a hassle for those who actually do the work.

The main pro is that I can take this class at my leisure and I do not have to be online at any set time. The main con is that some technical issues with the website or classroom can hamper your school work schedule. Although this issue is rare.

Degree: Educational Leadership
Graduation Year: 2015

The graduate program at my school has given me an opportunity to pursue a degree with a program that is aligned to my dreams.
3.0 out of 5.0
Degree: Curriculum & Instruction
Graduation Year: 2017

Overall I felt as though my graduate program was effective and well organized. It allowed me to continue teaching, and coaching while also obtaining my graduate degree. The only con would be that the classes were slightly expensive. As a teacher and cash paying student the class were fairly expensive.

UOP is very supportive of the student. The faculty and staff put a great deal of effort into ensuring success. I am glad I chose this program to further my education.

Need more support with academic resources and guidance. Need more financial aid opportunities and to explore career options.

Degree: Public Administration
Graduation Year: 2015

I love the program, the workload is quite challenging but I would expect anything less from a graduate program. There is access to academic resources even though classes are online. The counselors, advisors, and professors are also accessible to answer questions and address concerns.
4.92 out of 5.0
Degree: Psychology
Graduation Year: 2014

The Psychology field of study has helped me to get a general understanding of human behavior, and how the psychologists from generations has helped complete more research for students and educators to utilize in the classroom settings. One of the goals to to identify what factors were initiated for such human behaviors, in order to better assist them when the individual starts to display certain behaviors. Some of these categories does not apply due to I am taking online classes.
