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.
