In the middle of obtaining an MJun 18 2016History/Histories (art history/etc.)
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.

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 not clearly outlined in the syllabus. The online "classroom" is very outdated - in the sense that the resources and materials were probably relevant at a much earlier date. There are a lot of broken links, incorrect dates, missing information regarding assignment details, etc. Case in point: my most recent course had links to many reading assignments, the majority of which were inactive. In the end, I suppose you get what you pay for. This is a for-profit, ultra cheap school. Profits are first, academics are second. That much is very clear. I would definitely not recommend this school to anyone.

I received my Bachelor's of Science through AmericanAug 06 2014Public Health
I received my Bachelor's of Science through American Miliitary University. I am currently in my Masters of Public Health Administration through them and will be done in 2015. I don't have the time for a traditional education. I have no problems with this place. If I choose the PhD, I would definately consider this university again.
