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
Graduation Year: 2015

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: Elementary Education
Graduation Year: 2015

I love the University of Phoenix’s Education program. I received my Bachelors degree from the University and had a wonderful experience. I chose to return to the University of Phoenix for my Masters in Elementary Education with them because of the excellent service, educational technology, and helpfulness of the faculty.

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.

Degree: Secondary Education
Graduation Year: 2011

Although tuition was steep comparable to other institutions, the educational experience with University of Phoenix is invaluable. I find that I am more knowledgable, more flexible, and more prepared than others with the same degree from other universities. The faculty contains leaders in the field of education whose guidance and expertise helps graduates approach their new careers professionally and confidently.

Degree: Healthcare Administration
Graduation Year: 2015

There are many pros and cons to an online degree. For myself, it was a positive that it was online. With the online learning atmosphere, there were a couple of negatives that went along with it. I had to make time to work on my assignments and participate, which at times was difficult. It was great knowing after I put my daughter to bed I could get my work done for the night online. After long days of spending time with my family, I had plenty of time to get work done. Overall, a great experience.

Degree: Curriculum & Instruction
Graduation Year: 2014

UOP-online provides a very competitive curriculum that is valuable in my goals to advance academically. UOP could benefit from having a faculty and staff that offers greater support during residency and between classes but the overall experience has been wonderful and worthwhile.

Degree: Elementary Education
Graduation Year: 2014

I love the fact that UOP offers all the tools students need to succeed. It is very over whelming in the begining. Once you are able to navigate through the website, your potential is unlimited. The only negative to online school is if you have a question its hard to get an immediate answer. They do have a 'ask the librarian' tool that will help. But if it is homework specific it can be frustrating.

Degree: Liberal Studies
Graduation Year: 2016

The PhD in Industrial Organizational Psychology at the University of Phoenix is the most difficult program the university offers. Although the journey has been difficult and is not over yet, I value the ability and opportunity I have to achieve such a level of degree without having to travel everyday.
