"It is a good school to go to if you have to work or have a family. It's classes are also taught by people who work in that field currently."

"I like the University of Phoenix because it provides satisfactory elevations of academics. The University of Phoenix has been accredited by the Higher learning commission since 1978, and continuously receives accreditation from the higher learning commission. The University of phoenix is convenient for working students and works around your schedule. Working on teams rather online, or on campus as helped me develop interpersonal skills. My experience as a student has been rewarding, it has given me continued growth in knowledge that will help me with future endeavors."

"The University of Phoenix offers a rigorous Master's level program with excellent instructors. My tenure in the 18-month program was enlightening and enjoyable. Receiving instruction which prepared me for the challenge of further studies at the doctoral level was immensely gratifying, fulfilling and has proven quite useful in my current academic pursuits. Most of the professors were engaging and readily available for support if needed, and provided helpful feedback on your progress during the programs. If I were to make a recommendation for the improvement of the program, it would be a greater focus on independent study and less reliance on 'group' study for students, culminating with an individual thesis. While I understand that as scholars there will be times when collaboration will be necessary in research efforts, the challenge of team work in the online environment, is that some students are not as invested or as professionally responsible as others, and the spread of the work to be completed is not evenly distributed among team members because of lack of participation by some. All in all, my experience was a pleasant and productive one, and I am proud to say that I attended the university of Phoenix."

"This program is a perfect program for those who work full time or are parents. I was a young teen when I had my first child, having to work full time I didn't think school would be an option for me but this program helped around my schedule. The only cons with this program is the communication with advisers and the lack of help to find a career after graduation. There is not much information given by advisers in regards to helpful job careers or steps to take after graduation. Overall University of Phoenix has its pros and cons but I would recommend this school to fellow friends and family."

"The pros are that I will be able to walk across a stage for my degree and feel the hard work accomplished. The con is I have to travel 3 hours to make it to my graduation"

"I feel the pros of the graduate program through University of Phoenix are the great amount of support received from the faculty and advisors. Real life examples help transfer the curriculum from the classroom to real life situations allowing the material to be better understood and clarified. The cons are that sometimes it is hard to get in touch with an advisor in a timely manner. Also the syllabus is sometimes not very specific as to how an assignment is expected to be completed."

"The faculty is fantastic as well as the application process and the support you get from the staff. The downfall is the financial aid system and how it is disbursed as well as the cost of school"
