Choosing Argosy

At Argosy University, we’re proud to support one of the largest communities of graduate students in the nation as well as an active, thriving undergraduate community. As a student, you’ll enjoy a collegial, supportive academic environment that emphasizes teaching and practical training across the areas of education, business, health sciences and psychology. Each of our programs is designed to instill the knowledge, ethical values, and interpersonal skills of professional practice and to foster values of social responsibility in a supportive, learner-centered environment of mutual respect and academic excellence.

Faculty experience

Our talented faculty and staff are dedicated to providing you with the skills, guidance and confidence needed to thrive in your chosen field. Our faculty believes learning comes from doing, so they don’t just lecture-they engage. In addition to their academic training, faculty members rely on their own personal and professional experiences to help you understand the practical application of your studies.

Flexible learning

Argosy University offers degree programs in flexible learning formats, including online, evening, and weekend courses—all built to fit your busy schedule. Learn at one of our 28 campus locations across the US or in an interactive online classroom that’s accessible any time, day or night. Or, combine the two for a blended online and campus experience that meets your unique needs.

Personalized support

Because we believe the true measure of a university is not student enrollment, but student success, you’ll receive one-on-one support from our faculty and staff from enrollment to graduation, customized to your precise needs. Your peers will be other adult students who, like you, want to expand their knowledge, build on their expertise, and enhance their career potential. We’ve also assembled a selection of resources that can help you along the way, including online and campus libraries, career services, academic advising, tutoring, and much more!

Rich heritage

At Argosy University, we offer an education built on a tradition of innovation and professionalism. The history of Argosy University began in September 2001 with the merging of three separate and distinguished academic institutions - The American Schools of Professional Psychology, The University of Sarasota, and the Medical Institute of Minnesota. The combination of these schools created a unique learning environment that continues today in our campuses and our online programs, where we still embrace an entrepreneurial spirit and focus on the application of knowledge to the professional world.

Our history

Built on a diverse and rich academic foundation, Argosy University was formed in 2001 with the merging of three separate academic institutions—the American Schools of Professional Psychology, the University of Sarasota, and the Medical Institute of Minnesota.

The Illinois School of Professional Psychology, the first of the American Schools of Professional Psychology, was founded in the 1976 by a group of psychologists, educators, and other professionals who called for a clinical psychology degree that emphasized teaching and practical training over the research-oriented approach of the traditional PhD degree. This effort ultimately led to the creation of the Doctor of Psychology (PsyD) degree, which we still offer today.

The University of Sarasota also had a long history as an academic institution with programs for working adults, tracing its roots to 1969 when it was founded under a different name. The University of Sarasota also boasted an innovative delivery format that mixed distance learning with brief, intensive on-campus study periods.

The third school, the Medical Institute of Minnesota, brought to the table its own rich heritage, which began when it was established in 1961 in response to the emerging needs of the medical community, with the goal of preparing skilled allied healthcare personnel for careers in the booming medical technology fields.

Today, Argosy University supports one of the largest graduate student communities in the nation. We offer 28 campus locations across the United States as well as a number of degree programs online. At our campuses and online, Argosy University offers undergraduate, graduate, and postgraduate programs through these 8 colleges:
