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: Criminal Justice

I take classes strictly online. I like the program style and how they have updated the virtual classroom to help students keep track of work that needs to be completed every week.

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

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: Business
Graduation Year: 2014

Hello, since my classes were strictly online, the following did not pertain to my experience: Affordable living, campus safety, social life, surrounding area, and transportation. I am sure that if I could touch on these criteria, the rating would be much higher.

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.

Degree: Information Technology
Graduation Year: 2015

The online program is great because it allows you to work on your own terms. However, if you do not have the discipline to do the work, you can fall behind. Overall, the experience is good.

The pro is the achievement of required qualification. The con is the challenge of haven spent high amount of student loan to take the program, there is no idea on where the job is coming from and when.
