Degree: History

I started attending AMU in 2010 when I was active duty. I completed a portion of my English degree but decided to transfer to a traditional college for Microbiology. That didn't pan out for me and decided to return to AMU in 2018. I completed my BA English and immediately enrolled in the MA Military History program. I have not had any issues with instructors, most of my issues were with technical issues. I am preparing to begin a second Master's Degree at AMU.

Exceptional learning institution, those complaining are lazy and don't want to put forth the effort to earn a degree. This institution have some of the best instructor's. They are very knowledgeable about their subject areas. The best online institution.

I am in the middle of obtaining an M.A. in Global History via their online learning environment. The good: APUS makes it very easy to apply and submit materials online. The account page is very intuitive, and there is a link for just about everything. Also, it's the cheapest route to obtaining a Masters. The bad: Books aren't finalized until the day classes start, which is annoying and unpractical. A few professors have been very kind and helpful, but the majority are not. Course expectations are...

Education is what you make of it, whether you're Abraham Lincoln reading second hand books and mastering the law or you're a rich child attending Harvard Law because your parents went. AMU/APUS is no different. There will always be some professors who are better than others, and there will be some classes with a heavier workload or a unique curriculum requiring extra discipline. Some courses I've taken, especially in my graduate studies, have been incredibly challenging and time consuming, with one... Read More

Degree: History

I received an MA in history and a Graduate Certificate from AMU. I have to admit, I was thoroughly impressed by the attention and quick responses from my professors. AMU actually requires its professors to be very active in their courses. The programs were thorough and well structured. The program director was extremely helpful, as were the live chat options and advisers. For the sake of not sounding like a drone post sent by the university, I would also like to admit that I was very weary of enrolling... Read More

First let me disclose that I am a card carrying member of MENSA, yet despite that, I did not receive an A in every class. I did however graduate with a GPA high enough to be inducted into three (3) different international honor societies. The studies for my Master's Degree were academically challenging yet very achievable. I finished my degree program in December of 2014 and will be receiving my degree in February of 2015. The quality of the professors has been wonderful. I have had a few good professors,... Read More

Degree: History

I had professors who had earned their PhDs at places like Berkeley. A couple of them affected my life in wonderful ways. The librarians are wholly devoted to the students. The quality of education was better than I thought it would be. I attended because it was more affordable, but the knowledge I acquired was worth more than the cost of education.
