Degree: MBA
Graduation Year: 2014

This school is fine, especially for a working adult. Some instructors are better than others. Then just switched their online portal and it made everything difficult.

Degree: Public Administration
Graduation Year: 2015

So far so good, I have yet to fully search out all the resources that are available to me at Phoenix, but I will in time. For the time that I have spent visiting the campus, and the surrounding area, I feel completely welcome, safe, and accepted there. I feel that the staff wants to help me to achieve my goal and encourages me in my academic pursuits. I am truly grateful for the opportunity to attend Phoenix. My family is supportive of my decision to obtain my Masters and I am doing it in order to provide a better future for them. The only con in the Masters Program is the same as any academic program...the cost. I actually will have ended up borrowing more over my lengthy BA than I will owe for my Masters, so really, I guess that is not a con. :) Looks like all pros and no cons.

The pros of a graduate program is the ability to obtain higher learning. The cons of a graduate degree is the ability to pay for the education.

Degree: Management
Graduation Year: 2015

The pros are you are able to understand the concepts of the class by interacting with others in different career fields as well as the teachers. Another pro is although we are on different time zones we are able to communicate effectively as a class and get the job done. Con's are not a lot of interaction with academic advisors until something bad is happening. Another con, deals with the way there isn't enough online social clubs through the university. They have mentor programs which i am a mentor but people want to be able to be in some sort of club that will enhance his/her networking abilities.

Degree: Liberal Studies
Graduation Year: 2014

Completing a graduate program is not easy. It takes hard work and dedication. However, the end results are most rewarding. Being apart of the graduate program inspires me to do more and be more. My goal is to teach and inspire others. Gaining a Master's Degree will be a wonderful accomplishment and hopefully one day my kids will to follow my footsteps as I followed my mother's.
