Adler
WHY ADLER

Adler is a pioneer in the field of graduate psychology in Canada, as the first private institution in the country to offer graduate degree-level programs in Psychology.  

Adler's Master of Psychology (M. Psy) degree program is designed to prepare students looking to offer psychological services in either counselling or clinical settings. As a professional degree, it encompasses a greater focus on practice than one found in typical university research- and theory-driven programs. Our courses are structured to meet the College of Psychology’s educational requirements for membership as a Psychological Associate.

As a micro-targeted institution, we are able to offer a greater focus on students’ individual needs and their professional development.  Our faculty members are all practicing clinicians, who bring to the classroom their real world experiences and most up-to-date knowledge in their profession.

Class sizes are small, offering an intimate learning environment.  We also offer many class options on weekends and evenings, allowing students the opportunity to continue their current work/family obligations while they pursue their degree.

Additionally unique to Adler, our Transitional Equivalency Program allows students who may not currently possess the full academic requirements needed for the M.Psy degree the opportunity to earn a graduate degree in psychology.

Ministerial Consent

Pursuant to the Post-secondary Education Choice and Excellence Act, 2000, Adler Graduate Professional School has been granted consent by the Ontario Minister of Training, Colleges and Universities to offer a Master of Psychology degree. The consent process requires a thorough review similar to what is called “regional accreditation” in the United States or various quality assurance procedures in other jurisdictions.  In Ontario, the term “accreditation” applies to designations by professional bodies.

“This program is offered under the written consent of the Minister of Training, Colleges and Universities for the period    from 25 January 2011 to 24 January 2016. Prospective students are responsible for satisfying themselves that the program and the degree will be appropriate to their needs (e.g. acceptable to potential employers, professional licensing bodies or other educational institutions.)”    http://www.peqab.ca/.  The application for renewal of consent was submitted by The ADLER Graduate Professional School in July 2015.

 

"I attended and graduated from the Adler School in Toronto. ADLER had a reputation (in the professional community) for having clinically sound and professionally well-trained graduates. Thereafter, literally the next day after my graduation, I landed a job with an agency of my liking in Ontario.

Aside from the up-to-date research knowledge one received from the classes, the professors clearly went beyond the curriculum, offering insightful and compassionate assistance. Dr. Linda Page, the President, was easily accessible for consult - how many degree programs can say the same?

I highly recommend ADLER if you want an advantage in higher learning, and if you want to be part of the tradition that Alfred Adler started now over a century ago."     MA student, Krisztián Kalász
