    The only way to know is to ask a Dean at Cal State.

    I have to say absolutely not. University teaching, at any level, is a highly competitive field. There is no way that a U of Phoenix PhD would be in any way prestigious enough to get you a full time teaching job at a state university, and the Cal State system is actually competitive. It’s nothing to sneeze at.

    I also don’t think it’s good enough for a community college. And I’m not sure most schools would take you on even as an adjunct. Some might. Somewhere… But no, not Cal State.

    In general, if you plan to teach, full time, at university level, you want to get a PhD (in person) from the most reputable, highest ranked program in your field that you can get into. At the PhD level, reputation of program can make or break you. That doesn’t necessarily mean that the program must be elite – that depends. But it must be, at its core, reputable.

    I’ve taken a quick look at the faculty listing at one of the less competitive Cal States. Their faculty come from highly reputable universities: U Cal Berkeley, UCLA, UC Riverside, U Indiana, Cal Tech, Stanford, U Zurich, U Arizona, U Florida, Ohio State, UMass Amherst – not all of these are the most elite programs in their fields, but many of them are, and all are extremely solid.

    Not one from U of P.

    LoL is that school from google ad?

    Probably not. There is a pretty strong bias against for-profit schools at the more traditional not-for-profit colleges and universities. University of Phoenix just isn’t very highly thought of there.

    Like Roaring Mice said, a tenure-track faculty job at a state university is still pretty tough to get–there are plenty of un- and under-employed academics with doctorates from more respected schools who dream of being so lucky as to land one. You might be able to get hired as an adjunct, but even that’s iffy–it would depend somewhat on your field of study and your experience. Ditto for teaching at a community college.

    If you really want a faculty career, choose another doctoral program.
