Hello all;

I am getting ready to start the Masters in Elementary
Education program at University of Phoenix. I desperately
need to work during school, hence the choice of U of P.
Before I give this place $16000 of money I really don't
have, I want to make sure that I can get hired.

Do you know of or are a teacher with a degree from U of P?
Have you (or your friends) had any problem getting a job -
due to the degree? Better yet, are you a principal that
has considered hiring teachers from U of P?

BTW, my BS degree is in Biology from a regular University...

Thank you for your time,

near the quality of a real degree from a real university.

go at night while working AND it is cheaper than University
of Phoenix! CU-Denver is very respected, unlike Universtiy
of Phoenix. Don't waste your money.

undergraduate from Valparaiso University, a very highly ranked and
REAL University. Plus, a degree is very important but it is not the
bottom line. Can you do the job? Do you have the necessary skills?

I, too, have an undergrad degree from a traditional school. A very
respected school at that. And, because we are a military family, I cannot
stay at a traditional University to earn my masters and credential. I
have always wanted to teach, so the degree program from U of P is the most
viable option. Mark, it is ...See More

You will be just fine. Believe it or not, many people did not question my
degree. They saw that I was "certified" to teach and asked me questions
suited for job requirements. Good luck with your program. I know it is a
lot of work since I have completed my degree. However, stick with it and
