A degree doesn't just change you

You’re not only in it for yourself. You overcome obstacles because you believe in more than getting a degree — you believe in future generations. When you earn a degree from University of Phoenix, you’re not just working for your own education. You’re improving the lives of those around you.

Who will you impact with your degree?

A better future doesn’t happen by chance. Make your impact.

Making an impact is easier than you think

With programs designed to fit your schedule as a working professional, you can make an impact on those around you without disrupting your life.

I wanted to finish up my degree because I had worked really hard for three years. I wanted to finish what I had started and I didn’t want that work to go to waste.
