I think accreditation from the U of Phoenix is the last thing I'd want on a resume. That institution (and I use that word mockingly) has all the respectability of a Ghanian medical college.

If you pour Phoenix tears on your failed exam paper, it turns it into an A...

Yet more useless degree possibilities.

yep, got suckered into UoP ... took me 2 weeks of writing essays like "How would you explain to a friend that they should enroll at UoP?" before I started telling them to fark off. Raised a huge amount of hell. Their PR department works hard to silence people.

Oh, so it's just like any other interdisciplinary field, then?

I dunno, IADT is a supposed "for profit school" and they have more credibility than most state schools.

I believe I once read a PostSecret to that effect, yes.

Well, whoever wrote it said he or she couldn't handle the scam anymore and quit.

A friend of my fiance's wife is doing online classes there despite having easy access to UNM.  She made a big deal out of joining the online sorority they have and drones on constantly about how close she is to her sorors.  When I looked it all over, it's so painfully a 'you'll do good as long as the check clears' type of thing.

all for profit universities should be shut down and the money they scammed people out of returned.

I rushed I Felta Thi at UP by drinking beer and watching Girls Gone Wild in my living room.
