Student & Graduate Reviews

4.0 out of 5.0
Degree: Psychology
Graduation Year: 2016

The major con for University of Phoenix is the learning style. This school requires you to participate as a team for the entire 7 weeks of the class. I am not comfortable working with others in a team as i prefer to be held accountable for my action not that of the entire team. The pro has to be the flexibility of the school schedule.

Degree: Educational Leadership
Graduation Year: 2015

They do an amazing job of developing a quality program. The online platform is easy to use, and the teachers give plenty of quality feedback. The assignments are challenging and require a lot of research.

The MSA program increased my knowledge in the accounting field. Also its was an added bonus for a career advancement and opportunity.

The graduate program will allow me to continue with my career goals. I really want to continue to receive a Doctor's Degree in Psychology.

Degree: Healthcare Management
Graduation Year: 2016

I believe that University of Phoenix has a very good support system. They have been great so far at making sure that I understand the whole on-line process. Being that I am a new grad student I haven't experienced anything negative so far worth discussing and I hope it stays that way.

Degree: Project Management
Graduation Year: 2016

It is challenging being in an online setting as opposed to an in-class setting. I feel that UOPX can integrate more video and live streaming into the curriculum, but I suppose the reasoning behind the model they currently have is to offer flexibility for all students to be able to to actively participate depending on their schedule. I like that the staff is so focused on the student, despite where they are in the country.

Degree: Education
Graduation Year: 2015

I believe that there are several pros of my graduate program. The Adult Education and Training program is a beautiful blend of lifelong learning with adults and other special populations with the training, development, and assessment skills needed in the Human Resources field. I love my faculty are currently in the field that they are teaching and give me real-life reflections to coincide with our text. Additionally, I enjoy the topics we will get to cover in my program such as community-based learning and social media trends. I only wish that we had the opportunity to get out into the field as a program requirement. Otherwise, I'm very happy with the program so far!

Degree: Secondary Education
Graduation Year: 2015

My program is unique in that it's online which presents con's in lots of aspects... time management, lack of personal interaction, etc. The pros' are that I am on my own schedule, I can do school through home while raising my family, convenience.

Degree: Healthcare Administration
Graduation Year: 2013

pros are it gives you confidence graduate to be successful cons are masters degree is not good for where I live so I didn't go take that and they don't help find me a job after graduation after all the money I paid for the education. It needs changed.
