Review University of Phoenix - Las Vegas
I am in my second year at University of Phoenix-Las Vegas. So far I have had a wonderful experience. Each class is five weeks I really enjoy that. It makes me feel like I am making progress faster even though it is the same amount of time as a traditional college. I enjoy going going to class one day a week for four hours. The campus is very clean and well kept. We do not have dorms/ housing, Athletics and campus food. The classes are very small and the learning is intense. I recently received an email stating my program may not be receiving federal funding over the next 12 months. That was a unexpected being that I am really looking forward to completing this program and I have already invested two years.
For University of Phoenix graduate students have lifetime accessibility to the school's website and their coursework, and career center which consists of a resume builder and tips for interviews. The school has its own social network which is also accessable after graduation. From my understanding of other people's experience job prospects do not seem to be very good as employers may not consider an application simply because of the school's reputation. However, networking through the school's social network may help those who are looking for a job. I am personally worried about how I will obtain the experience I need be able to obtain a job to put my degree to use while i pursue a higher degree. I have done my own research on volunteering/job opportunities which I hope will pan out.
Being a psychology major at the University of Phoenix can be stressful at times. Although the school's resources are great for students, and the teachers are helpful, as mentioned before, the team setup is unfair to many students who end up carrying the weight for those who take to their advantage the fact that they will most likely not be graded individually. Despite multiple talks with every teacher and even the dean, there is a consistent problem with students who perform at a less than desired level. Furthermore, the school does not provide psychology students with many experience opportunities which can leave some in limbo when they graduate. The month to month classes can make the workload easier but this is not always the case and the student must read and do the work ahead of class time ( in other words you may have to teach yourself for the most part).
