Argosy University offers degree programs in flexible learning formats, including online, evening, and weekend courses—all built to fit your busy schedule.

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:

The university derives its name from the noun argosy, which means a rich supply. The Argosy University logo features a shield, decorated with a laurel wreath representing academic and professional achievement as well as a flame representing passion and personal development. The green in the logo symbolizes growth and harmony and represents academic achievement through the development of interpersonal skills. A bright and energetic color, the yellow symbolizes intelligence and clarity and representing personal passion and wisdom.
At Argosy University, our passion is teaching and learning. We develop professional competence, provide opportunity for personal growth, and foster interpersonal effectiveness. Students succeed because our university community engages and supports them.
