University of Phoenix offers the latest insights to the program of your choice. I believe the interaction and real world scenarios help prepare me for what I may face in my career. The only con would be not being able to interact with your peers and instructor face to face.

Degree: Nursing
Graduation Year: 2015

Love the RN-MSN program. Especially love the updated classroom. Offers students a more realistic learning environment. The only downfall to the new classroom program is some professors are not embracing this change and reverting to the old requirements instructors instead of embracing the new one, which offers a vast improvement and learning opportunity. Being in a class with the new classroom setup, but forced to do it the old way, limiting learning opportunities is not only sad, but wrong. All the educators need to get on the same page and embrace this new style and help students reach their full potential instead of holding them back in the past.

Degree: Psychology
Graduation Year: 2016

Being able to do my masters online is great because I can do coursework when I am ready and at the convenience of my own home. I am a non traditional student with a family and a full work schedule. The downfall is that it is super extensive and there are learning teams that you have to work with. I like the independent learning instead of the learning teams.

Degree: Special Education
Graduation Year: 2015

The pros are that the courses are online, but still challenging. I feel like I am gaining an educaition while I was skeptical of attending the university of Phoenix. Cons are that I was miss-informed on the TEACH grant when I applied and agreed to attend. Now I need additional funding to pay for my classes since I do not have the current out of pocket to pay.

Degree: Business
Graduation Year: 2015

The pros of University of Phoenix graduate program allows me the flexibility to work and attend MBA program. I have a techie type of personality and I believe distance education is highly effective form of learning. Some of the cons are trying to make group assignments work through a virtual environment because not every person is an accountable and responsible adult.

Degree: Psychology
Graduation Year: 2014

I am very happy with the University of Phoenix Masters Program. The staff at the school has been very supportive every since I earned under graduate degree. If I ever had a problem the stuff was there to support me in every way that is possible. I really cannot say that I had any cons about the school because the school is AWSOME. I look forward to getting my doctoral degree.
