"Great Experience at Phoenix Online"
I am currently a BS Psychology student at Phoenix online, and I enjoy every moment of the learning experience. I am a 40 hour work week employee as well as a Minister with children, there was no way that I could have attended a B&M school. Yes you have a lot of papers to write, but this is college, and I write sermons all the time. As for the team approach, I find it to be a great experience collectively learning and researching theories and such with others.
I happen to have had persons on my team who put in 100 percent, which from what I have read from other reviews, is unheard of, but not my personal experience at UOP. I think many of UOP students depart for this main reason, cost, cost, and cost! It is pretty high! I plan to continue onward to the MS and Doctoral Psychology degree levels. There are certainly other schools that are more reasonably cost effective considering our current economic situation in this country, but I feel that I know the format and tools of UOP online, and so I wouldn't want to have to take the time to learn a new format.
Psychology is a most difficult subject academically, and demands much of your time in reading the materials provided, as well as an open mind. I just thank God at my age that there is a school willing to work with older learners, and provide the opportunity to learn in the online system.
I can agree with some of what has been said by others, but when I assess the total program and the time it takes to complete a degree, the doors that a degree can open for you in terms of employment, and just the fact that I can now help the members of my church with their problems, its all worth the time and academic difficulty.
I am sorry that each of you did not have the experience that I had with UOP, but I am sure which ever school you attend, that you will become successful in your academic learning pursuing, and I will continue to recommend deep research for all persons seeking higher education to look closely at online education pros and cons, and govern themselves accordingly.
