Degree: Counseling Psychology

Adler University is well known for clinical training in psychology. The staff have great merit and offer great knowledge and expertiese. The school itself is a social justice school, so culture and diversity are invited, discussed and acknowledged throughout the program.

Degree: Psychology
Graduation Year: 2017

Adler University offered a great online environment with a fulfilling classroom feel. Although I was not in an actual classroom, the discussions were lively and gratifying. The teachers were always available for helping and had a response rate of fewer than twenty-four hours. It appeared the program was well built and had plenty of structure to which allotted for an excellent academic ambiance. The program contained courses that enriched my mind on the military and the struggles the warriors have been facing for a long time. I felt the program is helpful for students who want to continue their education to become a psychologist or a clinical counselor. The materials taught in this program are tools that are going to open doors later on for many who complete the program. One of the most significant challenges of the online application for myself was the final capstone project, but Adler University taught me how to conqueror assignments I might have felt uneasy with at any other school. Adler University offers a high-quality academic environment. If anyone is looking for teachers who care, a vibrant learning atmosphere and a satisfying challenge than Adler University is the school for you. The Online environment at Adler University is excellent for anyone who has a busy schedule and is looking to continue their education around their agenda. I enjoyed being able to go on vacation, while still able to fully complete all of my assignments.

Degree: Psychology
Graduation Year: 2018

My program was online. I was able to work a full-time job while completing my degree. The instructors were very knowledgeable and responded to every question I had. The structure of the online program Adler uses is great (the app too!) I was able to pull up assignments from wherever I was. The coursework was closely tied to what I will be doing in my professional career. I feel like I will use everything I learned.

The professors and staff at Adler are incredibly professional and helpful. They were especially understanding when it came to my military schedule interfering with some of the papers and projects that were due. The discussion generated online was always lively and added greatly to the overall experience.

Degree: Psychology
Graduation Year: 2018

The courses were challenging and required the mandated readings along with outside research which really opened the field and outcomes available which can transfer into knowledge and experiences. The professors allowed for open discussion without fear of any political or societal fallout, this allowed for in depth, open, intelligent conversation with solid research foundations and outcomes.

Degree: Public Policy
Graduation Year: 2018

Adler University in Chicago has helped me to incorporate a lens of social justice into my career goals in public policy. The coursework is challenging but very interesting and relevant to modern public issues and politics. The instructors are very well experienced in their fields, and learning often includes both historical and current event examples to help students navigate book learning into real-life application. I have a diverse educational background in anthropology, psychology and international public health, and the Masters of Public Policy program allows me to capture each of these areas in my written and roleplay assignments. In fact, all worldview lenses of the students are appreciated during the classroom discussions, and the instructors aim to create a safe and welcoming atmosphere - even during heated topic debates. For students seeking a modern education that thrives on intellectual rigor, then Adler is a top choice. In addition, the course content situates the learning materials into critical historical realism, which helps students anchor their blossoming awareness of social justice to such public domains as community health policy, which is my chosen track. I highly recommend Adler Universitys Masters of Public Policy for students wanting to gain from an education in policy that goes beyond statistics and top-down public initiatives to incorporate bottom-up community insights.

Degree: Non-Profit Management
Graduation Year: 2018

Alder University has been an outstanding online school. The professors are motivating and encouraging, IT support is excellent, and the university has always been responsive with questions. While the school is fast-paced (a new course every 8 weeks), it fits my schedule perfectly - allowing me to work still work full-time and be a parent to my young son. Every course has been a wealth of information that I am immediately putting to use in my current work. Overall - an excellent program and school!

Degree: Psychology
Graduation Year: 2019

Adler University is a great educational institution. I am only six month into the program and have been enjoying every course and professor so far. The courses are engaging and relevance to my personal perceptions/ understandings. The professor have extension experience and expertise while still being just a phone call and email away. The University is focused on social responsibility of individuals as it relates to the society that we are a part of. The program that I am in is the Industrial/ organizational psychology program. This direction gives me the opportunity to learn how to lead, consult and overall support different companies to be able to guide them into making socially responsible choices for their stakeholders and anyone that can be effected by their decisions. I believe that it is necessary to understand how intertwined we are with the world around us and it is important for us to take ownership of our actions. Adler University has definitely encouraged this perspective to the degree we choose and makes graduate school no as overwhelming as some may think.
