Why attend Adler Graduate School

The convenience and flexibility of online learning offers military members program access from anywhere in the world. Internship obligations for therapeutic training can occur in proximity to the student and Skype may be used to join Supervision classes to address Field Experience requirements. Courses are 5 weeks long and asynchronous so students need not attend at a specific time. Coursework deadlines are made clear at the start of each course. Students are encouraged to do coursework from session to session but it is possible to take a session off, if needs arise.
