Fair amount of available majors in the primary fields, but lacks a few that I would deem as essential, however options and alternatives are offered.

When I sighned up at APU I didnt expect the classes to be so hard that most students dont pass them and have to retake them a couple times just to get a passing grade in order to count for a credit. The teachers that teach the class are old and expect you to know everything that they do, I mean they are teaching you whatever subject the are teaching and you have no idea on the subject your not a genius. They do it on purpose becuase it is a prive college and their fundings are low, so they raise tuition prises and make the classes so hard to pass that you dont so you have to pay for the class again in order for it to count as credits when you finally pass it. Instead of a regular 4 month semester APU is only 3 months, the hard classes such as Calculus, Chemistry and writing classes are crammed into such a short amount of time that its another reason why so many students fail a class. I just dont understand APU ways and in my third year I regret signing up for the school because I am not going to graduate until another couple years. Its ridiculous.

Would I major in Education at APU again - nope. The program has no exposure to educational technologies (SmartBoards, Web 2.0 apps, PLN's etc.), the teachers provide very little active feedback, there is an undercurrent of oppression against students who don't fit a particular gender, political belief or level of unquestioning attitude. For a personal cost of $50 per hour to pay for sitting in a classroom in the Master's program, you don't receive but a fraction in value.

Education Major – I an education major and I enjoy my classes. The professors are great and personable and I like working with my classmates. The one problem I have is that because of the size of the college, the class offerings are small.
Sorry, there are no reviews.
