University of Phoenix-Online Campus

Phoenix, AZ

The Ultimate Adult-Friendly University

With the advancement of new technology, earning a degree online is easier than ever. And with specialization in the workforce becoming more in-demand and an increase in desire for a flexible education, that dynamic is swiftly changing. Today, traditional students can be found on every campus. However, there’s more than one option when earning your degree. There are now non-traditional students taking advantage of online, hybrid, and certificate programs available to them at their convenience. A quality education may only be a few keystrokes away, anywhere in the world - not just behind university gates.

One of the biggest and earliest providers of online education is University of Phoenix, maintaining its reputation as the biggest private university operating in North America. Established in 1976, the university maintains a track record of 41 plus years of excellence in providing educational options to cater to trends in the workforce as well as desires of the thousands of students the university has assisted. Aiding the adult-learner population directly, University of Phoenix maintains a reputation of excellence in helping students over the traditional university age study and open up new career paths.

 

Alumni Interview

Curious to know about the impact a UoP diploma? We got in touch with a political leader and mentor from our local community. Rick Davies, a proud alumni of the institution, was more than happy to discuss his thoughts when I asked some probing questions about his experience:

What was your field of study?

I obtained a Master of Science in Computer Information Systems from the University of Phoenix.

How long did it take you to earn your degree?

It took me two years to earn my master’s degree from start to finish.

What did you think of the curriculum you were studying?

The curriculum I was studying was relative to the degree in computer information systems and what it was meant to accomplish. This [the particular course of study at the time] was before the time the internet was established and had better correspondence study courses. Nonetheless, the lessons that were provided to me were easy to understand. The way everything was arranged allowed me to work full-time while I studied. Since graduating, I’ve heard great things about University of Phoenix.

What did you think of the course offerings?

I feel that the course offers were useful and I had plenty of options, particularly in terms of electives and exploring my personal interests. I think for any student, whether they are wanting to take electives within their field of study or just their general interests, it is important to have options. I definitely had options there.

What have you done since obtaining your degree?

I was a Senior Technical Lead at a big electronics-related company for over seventeen years. Currently, I work as a Senior Solution Architect for a smaller value-added reseller. There hasn’t been anything I’ve been unable to do, and I owe a lot of my success to University of Phoenix. I’ve also been fortunate to have employers who invested in me and provided me further educational opportunities. In this industry, learning never ends. There is always a new software, program, or device that requires further education and training in order to master.

How else did your University of Phoenix degree help you?

The degree has opened doors for me in the industry that may have otherwise gone unopened. It has definitely helped me get a “first shot” with companies who look at a degree as the entry point for any position. More often than not, a degree is viewed as a bare minimum for a credible resume in this field. To have had the opportunity to earn a master’s degree has really shown employers that I am serious in this industry.

The majority of students at UoPx are working parents ages 25-35, but there were always at least 3 or 4 45+ or older in the classes I took. In fact 45+ is far more common than under 25 in the classes I was in. Generally from lower income backgrounds. Very high number of minorities. The students in the Psych classes once we got into Bachelors level courses was pretty solid. In AA level courses it was not so good. In particular the education majors that had to take Psych classes made me wonder about the future of our children. WE, the Psych majors had better grammar and English skills than they did. We were teaching them APA when many were only a few courses from graduation.

It's an online school/classroom, so my interaction with my classmates was limited to phone conversations and instant message/chats and blogging. The students come from all walks of life, all over the world, but are mostly working adults. Some with families like stay at home parents, individuals in the military, or those who can't go to an actual school. I was having special medical needs at the time (2006-2011) and it would have been very difficult to go to the community college or university. Culture is hard to say because my experience was limited to the online environment and asynchronous interactions, but again, it's probably just like any other university, but one designed around the working adult.

In 2008, in its first season, the University of Phoenix Houston campus men’s basketball team shocked the Lone Star College Sports League by winning a championship title. Made up of current university students earning their associate’s, bachelor’s and master’s degrees, the team beat Houston Community College 51-40. Houston was the first University of Phoenix campus to create a sports team for its students. The university also keeps its hat in the ring of sports through the University of Phoenix stadium. Home to the Arizona Cardinals NFL football team and the annual Fiesta Bowl, the 63, 400-seat stadium boasts the first fully retractable natural grass playing field in North America, as well as a retractable roof. Each July, the school hosts annual commencement ceremonies there for students across the country and the world. Proud family members and friends fill the stands to witness graduates crossing the stage to accept their diplomas.
