How many students are in the program?

Your advisor will guide you in which sequence you should take classes. You should visit with your advisor prior to cancelling a class.
Will credits from my previous graduate work transfer into Argosy University's graduate programs?
Argosy University does not simply accept credits into its graduate programs; rather, when a student can demonstrate that an equivalent course has been taken at another institution, Argosy waives the requirement for the course to be taken at Argosy.
Are all Argosy classes scheduled online or on nights and weekends?
Argosy University strives to present its programs on a schedule that is convenient for its students. Each campus and each program is offered in a different format and schedule, based on the needs of the students. Check with the campus you are interested in to learn how their programs are delivered.
Are all instructors practicing professionals?
Argosy University campus faculty qualifications meet or exceed the required accreditation standards. These standards include earned degrees and/or having significant experience in the field in which they teach. Many instructors at Argosy University are or have been practicing professionals in the areas they teach.
Does Argosy University offer teacher licensure?
Some Argosy University campuses do offer teacher licensure. Please talk with your Admissions representative at the campus you are interested in attending for more information.
Is it possible to attend an Argosy University campus in another state, get teacher certification in that state and then transfer it to the state where I reside?
Yes, but it is the student's responsibility to determine if restrictions or prohibitions are in place in the state they wish to transfer their license to. For example, you may obtain teacher certification in California and then apply for a teacher license in another state. Your state may give you a provisional license while you do what is necessary to be licensed in your home state.
Do any Argosy University campuses offer principal and superintendent licensure?
Yes, four of our campuses offer this licensure: Chicago, IL, Schaumburg, IL, Phoenix, AZ and Dallas, TX.
What is the difference between a Capstone Project and a Masters Thesis?
The Capstone Project tends to focus on a practitioner’s approach to the final class in the Masters Degree curriculum. It tends to be a practical approach rather than theoretical.
What are the written comps like?
The written comps are a required examination that must be successfully passed prior to working on the dissertation. Students are allowed one week to respond to a series of 5 questions related to a particular scenario.
How is Educational Leadership different than Instructional Leadership?
Educational Leadership (EL) is the program of choice for those who want to advance in administrative positions while Instructional Leadership (IL) is for those who want to continue as teachers, professors, or curriculum leaders.
What is an Educational Specialist (EdS) degree?
An Educational Specialist degree is a mid-point degree between a Masters and Doctorate. Many school districts will reward teachers who attain this degree with a pay raise.
What Education degrees and programs do you offer?
We offer Graduate degree programs in Educational Leadership (MAEd, EdS, EdD), Instructional Leadership (MAEd, EdS, EdD), and Community College Executive Leadership (EdD).
How long does it take to complete my MAED degree and then an EdD degree?
The MAED program is 36 semester credits. By taking just one class at a time, you could complete the program in 2 years. The EdD is 60 semester credits beyond the MAED degree, and 12 of those credits are for your dissertation. Most students are able to complete the EdD program in three to four years.

Argosy University will permit up to nine (9) transfer credits for the MA and EdS degrees and up to 12 transfer credits for the EdD degree. Only credits that are parallel to Argosy University courses are permitted to be transferred.
Does Argosy University assist students with practicum and internship sites?
Argosy University places practicum students into training sites appropriate to their level of training and training needs. Argosy does not place interns; rather, the University provides support for the application of its students for internships.
Do Argosy University programs lead to licensing in all states and provinces?
States differ significantly in licensing requirements for both master's and doctoral level licensing. Students are responsible for checking on the licensing requirements for the state(s) in which they intend to work.
Are Argosy University locations accredited by the APA for the Doctorate of Psychology (PsyD)
Argosy University has nine (9) locations that have received APA accreditation for their PsyD programs.
Can I transfer from one Argosy University campus to another?
Yes, with some restrictions. Generally, students can transfer easily from one Argosy University campus to another. However, some programs may require minimum residency time in the program from which the student intends to graduate. For example, the PsyD in Clinical Psychology requires two years of residency.
How is Masters of Counseling different from the Doctorate in Clinical Psychology (Psy.D.)?
While both programs are practitioner focused in the field of providing mental health services, the Psy.D. curriculum generally reflects an emphasis on the assessment, treatment, and diagnosis of mental illness. Counseling is a more holistic approach to the study of mental health. The clinical training component in the Psy.D. program is extensive and generally precludes full-time employment as a practitioner. The Ed.D. program is intended to be manageable for working practitioners with clinical training that focuses on supervision of entry-level counselors, teaching, and advanced practice.
