Great Teachers, Lousy Teachers, Lousy Course Content

I had Dr. Mark Bowles for Historiography. Great Professor!! Not easy, but if you work hard and are willing to follow his instruction on the basics and mechanics, you will be rewarded. Pretty deep guy here, and reserved. He is wonderful in allowing tremendous academic freedom. Dr. Anne Venzon was my Historical Research Methods Professor. Very good professor. I wish I had kept better notes in this class. There is a lot covered that is ...
Not the Best, Not the Worst

I completed the MA in US History a few years back and have had a mixed bag of feelings about it. To start off I chose AMU, simply because at the time it was one of only a few fully online based MA programs I could find. Several of the universities that were in my state had online programs, but you had to be on campus one or two times a semester for most classes, ...
MA in History - a TRUE History Curriculum
June 25, 2015
Part of why I chose to earn a MA in history at AMU was the convenience of an online program. Another part was that they waived the ridiculous requirement of having to take the GRE - when I already possessed a doctorate and had over 15 years of higher education teaching experience at the time. The main thing that swung me to AMU, however, was the curriculum. I wanted to study American history and I ...
Don't go here if you can possible avoid it.

I was provided with the essentials for my degree, but just barely. Just about the only good thing I can say about it is that it is accredited by a regional accreditation organization recognized by the United States Department of Education and the Council for Higher Education Accreditation. I verified that on the DoE Web site. You get nothing beyond the bare minimum, however. Faculty clearly do not coordinate with one another and that is ...
Good School Once...Now Just Another University of Phoenix

Sadly,what used to be a good deal has become a paper mill. Do not enroll in their History MA program if you want to pursue a PhD later or expect to find employment in the field. This used to be named AMU--American Military University. For the most part,it served troops both deployed and back in the USA--as well as government employees.It was a non-profit operation at the time,and--although it only paid teachers $150 per student--many ...

AMU is an outstanding university and I would definitely recommend it to anyone interested in getting a degree in military history. I started out desiring a MA in History with an emphasis in U.S. Naval History but after only taking 3 semesters, the school eliminated this strict area of study and changed my program of emphasis to world naval history. I was disappointed at first but soon found myself enjoying learning how naval history has ...
A program not for everyone
July 1, 2013
Though it's a great school it is a poor business. Technical errors in exams (not content but how the tool is put together) are annoying and in some cases frustrating. Finishing an exam only to have the web site go down is not a great way to teach, and that happened to me at least twice. The best part about AMU is the overall cost: cheap at twice the price. The worst part is that ...
