Argosy University, Chicago programs in psychology, the behavioral sciences, and health sciences emphasize a practical approach built on a background in theory. The programs were formed following a movement begun in the early 1970s that called for a professional degree in clinical psychology emphasizing practical training and application of theory and research rather than the research oriented approach of the traditional PhD degree. This effort ultimately led to the creation of the Doctor of Psychology (PsyD) degree at Argosy University’s original campus, the Illinois School of Professional Psychology. Chicago began granting the PsyD degree in 1979 and received candidacy status with the North Central Association of Colleges and Schools (NCA) in that same year. NCA accreditation was received in 1981.
Argosy University, Chicago (formerly ISPP) Clinical Psychology doctoral program (PsyD) has been accredited by the American Psychological Association for over 25 years.
