Student & Graduate Reviews

5.0 out of 5.0
Degree: Forensic Psychology
Graduation Year: 2016

Argosy University provided me the flexibility and freedoms to not only be a full time student, but also work full time while raising a rather large family. The MA in Forensic Psychology was a particularly interesting and informational degree program. The substance itself was fascinating, however the course was not as simple as I had originally hoped. I had taken courses at a different online school where I received my Bachelor's degree. This program required me to submit and participate in a discussion board weekly. While I understand the reasoning behind this, I felt it took too much personal time away from not only my family, but also in my learning the course material. I would rather do my assignment and move on. At Argosy, there were no discussion boards to have to participate in. The assignments were posted for us online; we were given a due date; and we submitted them. There were exams. The exams were cumulative, which wasn't awful, but it definitely made me work. The final exam was perhaps the worst part. It was also cumulative and in essay form. We were given three chances to pass before we failed the whole program. This was frightening. I passed my second time, with the help of a tutor and a LOT of studying. The professors do give excellent feedback on how to improve and what needs to be done to pass. I'm very grateful to have passed that course for it has lead me to other avenues of interests and showed me a bit more insight into the Forensic Psychology field of study. It has taught me that I have no interest in counseling, but would love clinical psychology and maybe, more specifically, just plain old research; everything fascinates me. This school provided me with a great education, a boost of self-esteem/pride, and the motivation to continue my education further.

Degree: Counseling Psychology
Graduation Year: 2014

Argosy University Online had some negatives, and also a few positives. The positives include the fact that all the instructors seemed to be very passionate about the courses they taught. They were very helpful, understanding, and available whenever a student needed help or advice. The residencies were awesome! It was great to attend, and see the professors and fellow students in person to interact and network with. The negatives include not enough student support with academic advisors, or with career services once you graduate. This program sort of "drops the ball" once your graduate. I graduated in 2014, and I still haven't started my chosen career, despite having a doctorate from Argosy! This challenge is not all because of Argosy (I am also a military spouse), but I believe Argosy should have more intensive career services for their graduate students. I have had to return to school, and am now working on a second master's degree at a different school in order to start my career. This is requiring me to spend tons of extra money and time on my education in order to get my foot in the door of my chosen career of counseling. Overall, more support is needed to assist students in starting their careers.

Degree: Higher Education
Graduation Year: 2018

This school is an option for fully online curriculum with a defined, structured course delivery style. There are varied majors and the faculty are dedicated to communication and quality instruction. You have to utilize time management and self-discipline, but the flexibility and opportunity are top-notch.

Degree: Sports Psychology
Graduation Year: 2012

Program was great just didn't have any job openings. I was told that I would need another degree and by that time I was ready to join the work force. I should have researched more and attempted a career I was familiar with instead of joining an emerging field.

Degree: Business Administration
Graduation Year: 2015

The classes and curriculum were pretty good. Depending on the professor, the classes can be very demanding and challenging. Some of the professors made the class and curriculum less challenging but I never had a class that was dull or thoughtless. Financial aid was very helpful and informative and my graduate advisor Mike was extremely helpful, personable, and always accessible. When I was not able to reach him, he always responded back to me in a timely manner. I transferred to this school from Phoenix, and wish I had started here from the beginning because the process and curriculum was much more seamless and challenging.

Degree: Psychology
Graduation Year: 2011

Argosy University online program is great for working parents. It is a flexible program that allows you to work at your own pace. The professors are in constant communication with you. The career advisors are a tremendous help in helping you organize your resume. They are also helpful with finding employment after you graduate.

Degree: Accounting
Graduation Year: 2018

I am currently pursuing my DBA-Accounting degree at Argosy. Because I have a background in online learning, it not difficult to conduct myself in an orderly manner. The coursework is thought-provoking, and when you receive feedback accordingly, it helps me strive to do the very best that I can in everything that I do throughout my college education. The only difficult thing I have to encounter is the availability of some of my advisors. It is hard to get in touch with them, or they forget to get back in contact with me.
