The Adler School works with those courageous enough to want to change the world. We are founded on an important idea: Our health resides in community life and connections. This is what drives our ground-breaking curricula and commitment to leading social change, and what drives our graduates to impact local, national, and global communities.
As an independent nonprofit institution of higher learning, we have a rich history that has produced master’s and doctoral programs that are based on a scholar/practitioner education model and prepare students as leaders and socially responsible practitioners for today’s world. We offer:
• Degrees for socially responsible careers in counselling, organizational psychology, art therapy and clinical psychology—including western Canada’s first Psy.D. program
• A diverse faculty of scholar-practitioners and mentors
• Immersive coursework, practical training, and real-world experience before graduation
• Our downtown Vancouver location offers a wide range of options for students to gain first-hand experience in practicum and clinical placements with organizations that partner with the Adler School.
