Degree: Criminal Justice

Prior Army enlisted/current law enforcement professional. Instruction? There was little or no instruction at all. I never spoke with one so-called "professor" and their actual posts were rare. It was a scam from the beginning and I was so hopeful concerning the potential positive impact on my career that I wanted so badly for it to be real. I had already realized the "Masters" program was not of any substance or real educational value prior to my son reading the assignments and work of others over... Read More

I met some great people within the program and am still friends with my group today even though we are not in the same geographic area. My issue stems from the advising, the professors, and dispute management. Advising - they lied to me to get me to enroll. My adviser told me that I could absolutely do what I wanted to do with the degree I was enrolling for. Unfortunately, the position I was hoping to achieve doesn't exist. Didn't find that out until class 10 out of 12. The adviser who told me this... Read More

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... Read More

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...

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... Read More

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.... Read More

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!
