School doesnt care aboutPsychology
School doesnt care about you. They make you pay to take the class..if you fail..if you withdraw. THEY JUST WANT YOUR MONEY. It takes weeks for them to get back to you and classes are only 5 weeks long.Do not go to this school.

Question
Graduated the BS Psychology program from UoP online.Quite BrightPsychology
Graduated the BS Psychology program from UoP online. It took me around six years to complete because of real-life work commitments. The advantage of UoP is the length of class. 5-week courses; you can knock out an undergrad in a little more than half the time at a four-year university. My GPA was ridiculously high upon graduating, because if you turn in all your work on time, you're almost certain to get an A. This is good if you plan to get your Master's at a prestigious institution, and is almost a requirement with Psychology.

The disadvantage is that its easy to cheat. Most of the UoP coursework is on sites like scribd including weekly discussion questions, presentations, math answers, etc. There are no proctored tests, just coursework. This sounds easy yes, but you're not learning anything or getting lab time which is important in any science discipline. More importantly, you don't get any help with internships or experience upon graduating, which is important for Psychology. They have started career counseling portion of the website, but its really bare-bones entry-level job placement. The student advisers will not help you get employed.

UoP is not something I put on my resume either, I simply list B.S. in Psychology with my GPA. Its embarrassing to compare myself to someone who graduated and studied abroad at Oxford or John Hopkins in Psychology. Perception is everything on resumes. Plan on immediately getting a Master's Degree from a better rated university you are proud of listing. At least you will have a high enough GPA to qualify for any MS program you desire.

Question
The doctoral program at the University of PhoenixQuite BrightBusiness - Management and Administration
The doctoral program at the University of Phoenix Online was a very rigorous program that encouraged me to dig deep, learn how to learn, think critically and creatively, team with others, do deep research into myriad topics of interest, become an expert in the fields of leadership and emotional intelligence, network with leaders in those fields, and strike out on my own as a small business owner after proving my personal leadership skills and abilities in practice.
