Anyone have a good job from University of Phoenix?
I'm planning on getting a Masters degree In psychology from them online. I've done a lot of research and lot of people say employers are not interested or will turn you down right away. Is this true? I'm worried I go through with this and it won't be worth anything.

Central Michigan University told me in 2008 that University of Phoenix is not accredited. On 02/18/11, a former employee who works at another school told me that University of Phoenix is in trouble and no one recognize them at all.

Hi everyone, UoP and online colleges in general are not a bad choice per se, but I would really recommend that you do lots of research before picking one particular school. You might want to check out this website for more information on this: http://onlinecollegesfaq.com/UoP... More
