Welcome to the Adler Graduate Professional School.
We are very pleased to be able to offer you a Master of Psychology degree program. This degree is designed to prepare students to offer psychological services in counselling or clinical settings. As a professional degree, it is more focused on practice than you will find in typical university research- and theory-driven programs. The courses are structured to meet the College of Psychology’s educational requirements for membership as a Psychological Associate.
We are a small school and are able to pay extra attention to our students’ individual needs and their professional development. Our faculty members are all practicing clinicians who bring to the classroom their real world and current knowledge of the profession. Classes are small and taught on weekends and evenings allowing students to work while they study.
Students not currently possessing a traditional four year honours undergraduate degree in Psychology or those who did not initially choose Psychology as a career path, have until now had limited options when it comes to gaining admission to a Master’s level graduate degree in psychology that leads to registration with the College of Psychologists as a Psychological Associate. Adler’s custom-designed Transitional Equivalency in Psychology provides the opportunity to bridge the gap between current academic qualifications and those required by the Master of Psychology (M.Psy) degree. It is also ensures coverage of the four pillars of psychology required by the Ontario College of Psychologists (i.e. Biological, Cognitive, Social Bases of Behaviour and the Psychology of the Individual), plus statistics and research methods.
For more information on the College’s undergraduate as well as graduate educational requirements for the professional designation of Psychological Associate visit www.cpo.on.ca.
Applicants in the process of applying for membership to the College of Psychologists of Ontario who lack specific courses in Psychology may apply for Student-at-Large status in order to make up required coursework.
