Background and History
Argosy University began as three different schools in the early 1970's. American Schools of Professional Psychology, the Medical Institute of Minnesota, and the University of Sarasota all joined in September of 2001 to create Argosy University. Argosy University Online is offered through the Chicago campus. Including the Chicago campus, there are 18 total university locations nationwide. Argosy University is committed to help students advance in their career choice through teaching and practical training involving online learning strategies created by the Socrates Distance Learning Technologies Group. Student growth is also supported by assigning each student with a student advisor, faculty mentor, career services, and an online campus community. Argosy University offers bachelor degree programs in the areas of both business and psychology.
