At University of Phoenix, we believe that small classes are an important part of your success. Keeping class sizes down means that instructors are accessible, and that you’re held accountable for your own academic achievement. We have an average of 15 students or less in each class. We believe you learn more when you can interact with your classmates and your instructors. This intimate classroom setting provides you with a place to practice, try out new ideas, develop communication skills and test your leadership abilities. We’ve found that this kind of active engagement helps build self-confidence and teamwork—two skills that employers are looking for.
