University of Phoenix Reviews - Master's in Criminal Justice
University of Phoenix at Associates, Bachelors, and Masters of Science levels has excellent counselors, and online technology support. Teaches have several year of working in their fields and as professors. Professors are patient, encouraging, and detail each student in online classroom studies. University library is enormous with Pro-quest, Ebsco-host, and relevant field studies. University of Phoenix also has excellent instructional videos, classroom discussions, participation, and teamwork that prepare students for assignments ad final exams. Grade Point Average is based on students' efforts and merits to study, perseverance, and achievement.
Everyone's going to be negative about something even Wal-Mart a major company is viewed negative by some. However Uop is a great place to get your education they help you/check on you 100%. I have my associate or acts and Bachelors degree all in criminal justice excellent field!!! Some people would have a hard time attending school had it not been for UOP and they do have good ratings people have a bad experience and try to bash because, simply the school didn't work out for them. I am glad that many of us have meet the requirements to attend this university and have had such success congrads to all!!!
Course are appropriate for course of study, but there are two significant detractors to the program. #1 is the insistence of using group work for online coursework without any consideration of where the members of the group live (US/Overseas/Timezone) plus the natural curve of those who participate vs. do not. You have a group grade/project that is predicated on people you never see, may not be anywhere near you and you have no influence over. #2 is their insistence on using protected .pdf's for books. I like the idea of not having to purchase books, but they've adopted a format that is so dated it should force one to rethink attending. In 2015 any institution that can't allow for students to read on a Kindle, Nook, iPad is to far behind the times to be considered credible.
This education program is the best bang for your buck, especially if your a vet. The instructors were professional from the fields: LA DA Offices, law enforcement executives, governments GS executives, and the list goes on. The support from the university was on the quality. Anytime I needed assistance, there was a program in place to address the issue. This program worked for me for two reasons: 1) I had the skill and ability to study at my level of degree and I did not feel that someone should give me something because I was a VET. 2) I was willing to put in the research and study time to achieve good grades. I proved my ability to apply concepts and theory learned during my course of study. I was able to secure employment within 90 days base on my ability to sell my education, training, and experience, not because of my degree from the University of Phoenix, but because of my ability to prove myself during the interview process. The degree was just a requirement.
I really enjoyed the classes, like all schools the information is informative, the teachers respond to the questions in a timely manner, and if there is a problem the teacher usually try to fix it. I had one problem out of financial aid, but it was due to mixed communication on both parts. Other than that the school, is accepted in my state and the job pays a percent, so I enjoy the work and would love to one day teach at the school.
I am currently enrolled and I earned my BA from an oncampus location. I work full time and found that this fits into my schedule well.
I have read all the good and bad and personally it is what you make of it and some will not like the school others will love it.
It meets the requirements and I have worked harder in this program than I ever did while earning my BA. I am not currently working in that field but I have talked to a few people and have gotten positive feedback about my education choices.
I received my Masters degree in the Administration of Justice and Security in 2011 and it was a fantastic experience.
I met many people in my online experience and the classes were great! I would absolutely recommend University of Phoenix to anyone who has already gotten a career and is looking to move up. This school is great!
