Degree: Counseling
Graduation Year: 2017

I attend Adler University and I am working to receive my masters in counseling specializing in sports and health. The program that I am a part of has given me the opportunity to work with all different types of people in unique settings. In addition to your course work during the first year the students take part in a social justice practicum. This opportunity allows one to work in the community and advocate for social justice. The second year of the program continues to help develop the students as well rounded counselors by providing course work, clinical internship, and a sport psychology consultant externship. I highly recommend this school if you are looking for a program that treats you like a person and not just another student! If you would like to further your knowledge in social justice and enjoy city living, Adler University is for you!

This is a unique campus, it is located on the 16th floor of a Chicago high rise with a beautiful view of Lake Michigan. Another aspect of this university is its dedication to social justice and community outreach. If you are wanting to make an impact on people's lives and receive a multicultural educational experience than Adler is the place for you!

Degree: Military Science
Graduation Year: 2018

Even though I am just beginning my Master's degree in Military Psychology online with Adler University, I am honored to be a part of such a great school. Adler University is very well known for rearing Advocates for Social and Government change. It is through Adler university that voices can be heard speaking out against adversity and life's challenges that go unnoticed. Students of all ages that are attending Adler University or want to attend Adler University will be challenged and pushed towards making such necessary changes for our fellow man and our world. I am so honored to be working towards my Masters in Military Psychology which is taught by some of the most experienced and greatest minds of this field of study. At Adler we are not only working towards our purposes, fighting against all kinds of adversities but we are becoming a loud booming voice for the voiceless. Through furthering our education and using our inner strength we can change and overcome seemingly impossible struggles and obstacles for every man, woman and child. Begin not only your career at Adler, but help impact the world and give hope to the people who need it the most. Change is possible with Adler University.

Degree: Emergency Management
Graduation Year: 2018

Adler University is a diverse university. It provided valuable information towards my Master's Degree in Emergency Management. Enrollment was not difficult, and the school provided me with a counselor that assisted me in every step. Before my classes started, I took an orientation which explained how to navigate through all avenues of the on-line courses. Once my class started, I was provided a class mentor who I could go to with any questions I had about the class or school. Adler University offers a subscription to grammarly.com, mental health counseling, writing support, unlimited use of their on-line library. They have reasonably priced books in their bookstore where you have the option to rent or buy a hardcopy or digital books. The professors provide guidance and a list of references used within the course and are available via email or phone for any questions. Adler University provided me an excellent avenue to start my secondary degree and has been nothing but helpful along the way.

Degree: Psychology
Graduation Year: 2018

Adler University online programs offer the opportunity to pursue a graduate degree in a time frame that is suited to your career and family life. Because the technology is advanced, and instructors utilize the most current available methods, you do not feel that you are in the typical online program! Every person associated with my program from financial aid to instructors, has been supportive and helpful every step of the way. I have always received a response to questions within 24 hours, and the level of communication Adler is committed to is phenomenal. I would definitely suggest Adler's online degrees to anyone who wishes to pursue their graduate degree, but is concerned with the time it may take to obtain!

Degree: Clinical Psychology
Graduation Year: 2020

Adler University is great but would benefit from more diversity. The staff, faculty and students of color have the burden of teaching others about what diversity means, and that can be stressful. The majority population needs to take more stock in diversity as this directly affects the mission of social justice.

Degree: Clinical Psychology
Graduation Year: 2018

Adler University has given me a good grounding for a career as a psychologist. For the most part, the professors are incredibly intelligent, and good teachers of their material. The student body was, overall, a good experience, although there were times that if you were not incredibly liberal politically it could feel as if others would look down on you. Chicago is a great place to live, and Adler's campus is downtown, which gives a good opportunity to explore the city. Most of the student population came from around the country, which allows diversity in a geographic sense. Advisers work hard to ensure that you are taking the correct classes in the correct order, and the training department will work hard to make sure you get a good training experience at your various practicums. I am enjoying my experience, overall, here at Adler.

Degree: Counseling
Graduation Year: 2017

Adler University has all of the right intentions. Due to the University being private, there are some areas in the financial department that can be quite frustrating. It is also a toss up of the quality of professor you will receive. I have had the most growth in areas of personal affairs, social justice, and professional education that I have yet to experience in my life. On the same note, there were a select few professors who do not support the same social justice agenda and learning experiences as the others. I think the school has unlimited potential, but needs to continue looking into their educators as to serve its student population equally.

Adler University is an open minded, well established university that includes students in a social justice program. The faculty is diverse, open minded, and include students in research. I have been lucky to get into the PsyD program, I am grateful. Thank you.

Degree: Counseling Psychology
Graduation Year: 2014

I graduated from Adler University (formerly Adler School of Professional Psychology) in 2014 with a M.A in Counseling Psychology and emphasis in Sport and Health Psychology. When I decided to go back and obtain a Psy.D., Adler University was the first place I looked. I currently attend Adler University again, pursuing my doctorate degree. I cannot say enough about Adler's well-rounded program. They enforce social justice and educate greatly on diversity. The staff are welcoming, helpful, and encouraging. There is always quick and efficient communication between students and professors, which creates a more impactful atmosphere. Adler University is held in very high regards within the psychology community.
