Adler University

You are here

You believe a better world is possible, and you want to be part of it.  We share your vision.

Adler University educates students to engage the world and create a more just society. Established in 1952 to build on the pioneering work of Alfred Adler, the first community psychologist, the University offers master’s and doctoral degree programs for social change. Students enroll and complete degree programs at our urban campuses in downtown Chicago and Vancouver.

We offer rigorous programs and learning experiences in the classroom and around the world—all focused on advancing social justice in fields from public policy and administration, to fast-growing specialties in counseling and psychology. In Vancouver, these include graduate degrees for socially responsible careers in counselling, organizational psychology, art therapy, and clinical psychology—including western Canada’s first Psy.D. program.

Our students study in diverse local and international environments. They benefit from small classes, and close-knit program networks. Through intensive coursework and field-based training that provides real-world experience, they graduate prepared for an evolving job market and emerging fields that address ever-changing social needs—locally, nationally, and globally.

Our alumni lead social change in diverse careers, in teaching and research, private practice and consulting, business, healthcare, social services and the not-for-profit sector, and government. In our most recent Chicago Campus alumni survey, nearly 91% of respondents report being employed within a year of graduation.

Our faculty of practitioner-educators are leaders in their fields with high academic standards. They are devoted to students’ success, as mentors inside and beyond the classroom. Academic support and coaching, professional development seminars, active alumni networking, and dozens of student organizations provide additional support for our students.
