Degree: Instructional Technology
Graduation Year: 2016

My most recent higher education experience has grown into a passion for education technology coursework. University of Phoenix Online/Cohort offers the desired program of study. I desire to take the challenge of research, and further the skill of analysis writing. I look forward to building a relationship with the academic team a UOPHX Online Services through completion of my Program of Study, Doctorate of Education-Educational Leadership/Education Technology. We will gain a cohort experience each quarter, co-work, collaborate, create and cooperate with higher education values.

Degree: Psychology
Graduation Year: 2016

Many good schools offer distance learning psychology programs. When you get the degree, you get the Master of psychology from the school. It does not say its an evening masters or distance learning degree or full-time degree. What matters is the school from which you earned it. Advantages include studying at your own pace, and from a school you want regardless of its location. But you don't have the interaction with other students and close contact with the professors. You have to be very disciplined. Online education is not just a bunch of reading and posting. Online learning is just about the same as traditional education, as numerous steps have been taken to ensure that the learning experience is the same. While studying in an online degree program you will have to complete assignments and projects, take part in class discussions, take quizzes and exams as well. Students also get to communicate with each other as well as their faculty in nearly the same manner as traditional classroom settings.

Degree: Business
Graduation Year: 2015

I don't believe that an online graduate program would work for someone that needs personal attention from faculty to demonstrate problems and concepts. Online degree programs are more conducive to independent learning.

Degree: Healthcare Administration
Graduation Year: 2014

The biggest pros are that I can do my program online around my kids' schedule and I meet so many diverse people from all over. I have not had any cons with the program at all so far. What a blessing!

Degree: Health Sciences
Graduation Year: 2016

As a graduate student the training wheels have been taken off, you are on your own to earn your degree. You have have a professor you can go to and your peers, but you are doing research, research and more research. When you are earning your graduate degree you finding facts. The pros of a graduate program: -I am earning my graduate degree on line. I have PTSD and being in an over crowded place would make my skin crawl. -I have all of my resources at a click of my mouse. The cons of a graduate program: -Money. With graduate programs you can not get a grant, but are open to an unlimited box of loans and scholarships.

University of Phoenix is kind of expensive, but from the start of my application class to my actual enrollment, they guided me step by step, even with financial aid and registering for class.

Degree: Business
Graduation Year: 2014

It is convenient to attend when it fits into my busy life and schedule. As a single mother of two kids I need a flexible program. The con is you are in the classes only 6 weeks and don't have enough time to truly form a personal friendship with other students especially because you are not meeting face to face.
