Description:Psychologists study how we think, feel and behave from a scientific viewpoint in order to help people understand, explain and change their behaviour. Psychologists engage in research, practice and
teaching across a wide range of activities. In general, the majority of psychologists work in five broad categories of employment: research, teaching, service provision, administration, and consulting. Many
combine two or more of these categories. For example, a master's level Psychological Associate may provide psychometric testing to students or psychotherapy, in addition to teaching at a local college. Depending on the practitioner's qualifications, such work can involve individuals, groups, families, and larger systems in education, health and mental health organizations, government and industry.

The Master of Psychology curriculum is designed to provide clinical and counseling students with knowledge, skills, and attitudes necessary in preparing them to offer psychological services in a variety of diagnostic, therapeutic, and assessment settings. The elective options further allow students to have flexibility in selecting their theoretical orientation, preferred treatment models, and areas of concentration. Graduates from the Adler Faculty of Psychology program find career success in a broad spectrum of mental health agencies, including work as practitioners in hospitals, schools, clinics, regional health teams, correctional facilities, employee assistance programs. Many have their own private practices. They have also found career success as consultants, researchers and faculty in governmental and non-governmental organizations.
