Argosy University, Hawaii Offers Advanced Degrees in Samoa

HONOLULU, HI (September 7, 2012) --  Argosy University, Hawaii is honored to announce the opportunity for interested and qualified students to pursue one of two advanced degrees in American Samoa.

This program will offer students the opportunity to pursue and complete their Master of Arts in Education in Teaching and Learning: Ell/ESL, Teaching and Learning: Reading, Teaching and Learning: Special Education and Doctor of Education in Teaching and Learning degrees on island – with students taking half of their classes in residence on the island and half in a blended format, combining online learning with classroom learning. Currently, there are 52 students accepted to the programs and excited to begin their journey.

“We are thrilled to bring these two graduate programs to the residents of American Samoa,” says Camps President Dr. Warren Evans. “It is our goal to help advance the educational and career opportunities of the residents of the islands.”

Argosy University, Hawaii was originally founded in 1994 as the American School of Professional Psychology/Hawaii campus. The campus consists of its main location in Honolulu on the island of O'ahu, as well as limited service sites on the islands of Hilo, Maui and now Samoa.

Argosy University consists of seven colleges within 28 campus locations across the United States and also offers degree programs online. The 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 1970’s 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. In 2012, Argosy University welcomed Western State College of Law at Argosy University and The Art Institute of California, a college of Argosy University to its system of schools. Western State is the oldest law school in Southern California. It is a private law school fully accredited by the American Bar Association and has a large base of 11,000+ alumni. The Art Institute of California is Argosy University’s college of art and design, educating creative professionals in the fields of design, media arts, culinary and fashion.
