I graduated with my bachelors degree this year and I am now working on my Masters. I like the support that I am receiving at the University of Phoenix. I am able to attend classes when I am able to attend.

Degree: Higher Education
Graduation Year: 2014

By having the online graduate program the diversity, transprotration, network, safety, and program value are outstanding. We do have two physical residencies and some of our faculty members are awesome and always available, but I have run into a few that are extremely busy and hard to get a hold of. Social life is a very low rating because it is online schooling and as a Ph.D. student there really is not a physical social network, nor time for this. I cannot express how wonderful the curriculum, overall learning experience, and the personal value that I have received from this program. It has been worth every cent and more. I have made professional and personal friends that will last a lifetime, learned life and business lessons from faculty and classmates that have already been applied in my life and have paid me more than I could ever imagine. As a single parent of two beautiful daughters, I strive to be a positive role model and dedicate my time to my studies, serving my community, and teaching my students the value of education. I can only hope that the valuable lessons that I have learned from this university, degree, faculty, and my peers will have a lasting positive influence on my two girls, my students, and my community.

Degree: Psychology
Graduation Year: 2014

Excellent use of technology in keeping students engaged. Access to electronic resources which includes full downloadable copies of texts, reading and research materials is like one stop shopping and makes the program that much more attractive. Sometimes there is the sense though that because of the number of assignments that need to be turned in weekly, there is hardly any time available for reading the multiple texts and articles that are assigned for that week, especially for those of us that have full time jobs and families. As a result, you miss out on actual learning because you are focused on completing all your assignments on time. The professors are very engaging however, and very responsive to questions which is always helpful. Overall, a good learning experience so far.

Degree: Education
Graduation Year: 2014

The pros of my graduate program is that I get the chance to meet students all over the US in this online program through each course. What I also find great about this school is the one on one direction you get from your academic counselor and also your financial advisor without them my graduate experience would not be so great. The cons about my program is that the courses are not taken in a certain order so you could take a class that needed another course before it, so it can be pretty challenging on that aspect. Another con is not having class in person or even in a classroom setting, everything is done on your time in your won environment.

Overall, the school works extremely well. The lack of care and attention from the counselors is discouraging as well as the lack of communication with online professors.

Degree: Psychology
Graduation Year: 2014

My program is very challenging, but I absolutely love my major being psychology. My pros is the new and challenging material I get to learn, but the cons to this program is that every course has to be done in teams. It can be hard working in teams getting everyone to work in synch and agree with one another. I love the field of psychology and I am glad at the major I have chosen.

Degree: Secondary Education

Pros are that it is a great program for someone who works a full time job. Down side to the program is that only a few campus' offer the education program so you may need to drive a little further for the classroom course expectations.

Degree: Communications (Journalism & Media)
Graduation Year: 2015

The pros are that the program will allow me to branch out into various areas of employment after graduation. The cons are that I would like to be exposed to more classes that actually focus on Information Systems, or my concentration Visual Multimedia. I am hoping that as my courses progress I will have more exposure to the above mentioned topics. I am rehabilitating myself, in hopes of providing a better quality of living for myself and my family.
