  The educator must believe in the potential power of his pupil, and he must employ all his art in seeking to bring his pupil to experience this power.
~ Alfred Adler
The Adler Faculty of Psychology exists to accommodate both midcareer professionals and recent graduates who wish to advance their skills, knowledge, and attitudes so as to make a significant contribution as a member of a helping profession. Our degree and certificate programs emphasize a greater focus on practice than those found in university research - and theory-driven programs.

At the same time, our programs demand academic rigour, intense reflective practice, and the capacity to transform research into practice and practice into research. Programs are offered at the graduate and post-graduate level, or in preparation for graduate work, meaning that studies undertaken by students in Adler Faculty of Psychology programs are at or informed by developments at the forefront of relevant professional disciplines. Graduate-level students in professional education environments are expected to show originality in the application of knowledge and an understanding of how the boundaries of knowledge are advanced through research. As practitioners, they deal with complex issues both systematically and creatively and show originality in tackling and solving problems.

As mid-career professionals, some students entering our programs will be out-of-practice with basic student skills such as researching and interpreting scholarly literature, structuring and writing a research paper at a graduate level, effectively accessing online research databases, and maintaining an appropriately healthy balance among their various life obligations (including their studies). For every potential student who applies to any Adler degree, diploma or post-graduate certificate program, we offer a nine-hour, no-cost, mandatory, non-credit, pre-admission course GPS100 - Surviving and Thriving in Graduate School, that will help students develop their application for admission and instruct them in skills important to a successful outcome in graduate school. Post-admission, each M.Psy student is assigned a Learning Coach.
