School Information: College Degree Information
We’re pleased that you are considering Argosy University in your search for college degree information. Argosy University is an institution of higher learning founded upon the principle that relationship building is at the heart of both educational and professional success. Our academic programs focus on the interpersonal skills vital to professional achievement, while our faculty and staff nurture students' confidence — as well as competence — to thrive in their chosen fields.
Argosy University was formed in September 2001 by the merging of three separate academic institutions. The American School of Professional Psychology was founded in the early 1970s 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. The University of Sarasota had for more than 30 years offered degree programs in business and education to working adults through a delivery format that mixed distance learning and brief, intensive on-campus study periods. Responding to the emerging needs of the medical community, the Medical Institute of Minnesota was established in 1961 to prepare skilled allied healthcare personnel for careers in the booming medical technology fields.
Building on these successful foundations, Argosy University today comprises four colleges within 19 campus locations across the U.S., and also offers degree programs online through our Chicago campus. All of the degree programs available through our College of Psychology and Behavioral Sciences, College of Business, College of Education, and College of Health Sciences are 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.
