Programs inTechnology, Business, Education, Nursing, and Management are offeredand The University of Phoenix has now become the largest privateuniversity in the US.

Inaddition, the school offers graduate level certificate programs.Headquartered in Illinois, the school allows students to work on theirdegree while online, at a local campus, or both. Indeed, campuses cannow be found in 21 states as well as in Alberta, Canada.



Westwood Collegetraces its roots to Denver, Colorado where it was founded in 1953 asthe Denver Institute of Technology. Fifteen campuses in California,Colorado, Georgia, Illinois, and Texas comprise the physical campuswith the internet opening up the school to students around the world.Westwood offers programs in Aviation, Business, Criminal Justice,Design, Technology, Health Sciences, and Industrial Sciences.
