Not just anyone can teach at the University of Phoenix. Its staff is robustly experienced in their fields with over 27 years of average professional experience.
The University’s faculty are not just about theory. They design courses for real-world applicability, tapping into their professional experience in their chosen fields so that adult learners can apply their new knowledge in the workplace. And since University of Phoenix faculty actually work in the industries that they teach, they know firsthand what skills you need to know to be relevant at work.
It’s an approach that’s paying off: a whopping 85 percent of University of Phoenix students recommend their instructors.
The influx of online learning during the pandemic proved that remote learning can be just as valid as in-person methods and that you can’t discount the experiences of nontraditional students who learn online.
Through Prior Learning Assessment (PLA) at University of Phoenix, life experiences can be evaluated for potential credit. The University works with students to help evaluate their experience — everything from life experience to past jobs — to help them earn the college credits they deserve. For every three credits they earn through PLA, students can shave one course, three credits, five weeks, and over $1,300 off a bachelor’s degree.
That translates to saved time and money. Students with eligible credits and relevant experience on average saved $11k and 1 year off their undergraduate degree and can save up to $6,800 and 9 credits off their master’s degree.
