Degree: Criminal Justice

Enjoyed my time there mostly, but the thesis was quite difficult. In fact, I was worried when I first started writing it because of the time commitment and the fact that it was it was so slow in coming together. Once I finished; however, I was quite proud of what I had accomplished and I am using that knowledge everyday in my personal life. Other than the thesis portion of the degree, the rest of the classes were both interesting and informative. In addition, the faculty was incredibly diverse and... Read More

Degree: Criminal Justice

Graduated in 2013 with Master or Arts in Criminal Justice. The jobs that you would think you are qualified for when having an advanced degree wont even call back. The classes were too easy and getting into the school was easy. I do regret going here and spending so much money on that degree and should have went somewhere else

Degree: Criminal Justice

Service Disabled Veterans and Law Enforcement Officers injured in the line of duty beware. As soon as APUS/AMU/APU learned that I was an SDV and LEO injured in the line of duty, the discrimination began. Without going into great detail, one would have thought I had the Plague or Leprosy.

Degree: Criminal Justice

I attend APU and graduated with a Master of Arts in 2013. The coursework could have been more difficult but it was decent. The only issue is finding a job with the degree now. No problem with financial aid while I attended the school. Doctorate program should be offered in the future.

Degree: Criminal Justice

I am almost done with my MA in criminal justice. My experience at APU has been excellent. If you are motivated and organized there is no better way for a student to achieve an accredited degree and still be able to work. This is not a school for kids who need a lot of hand holding or who can't self motivate to get their degree. I found the quality of the grad school instructors to be superior. Their academic credentials were frankly amazing with many having a doctorate in one or more fields and many... Read More

Degree: Criminal Justice

I decided to go back to school for my Masters and reached many schools and programs. I chose APUS as they had great reviews and a very reasonable program cost. The educational program, course delivery, and faculty were excellent. From the moment I started, the advisors, staff, and faculty proved how valuable I was as a person and student. It was obvious the instructors were there and working to help you succeed. The courses were challenging and the material was relevant and current. It was certainly... Read More
