Psychology or Counseling: Which Degree is Right for Me?

One comment we often hear from prospective students: “I want to make a difference, but should I pursue a degree in psychology or a degree in counseling?”

It’s important to recognize the massive impact mental health professionals have on our communities, with counselors and psychologists playing crucial roles. Both paths have the power to improve lives, but there are some key differences between them.

Please join us for an informational webinar where you will hear from Adler University faculty with extensive backgrounds in the fields of clinical mental health counseling and psychology. Find out if licensure is the path for you and what it will take to become a Licensed Professional Clinician (LPC) via our CMHC track, or if a variety of other socially responsible careers are a better fit via our M.A. in Psychology track.

Whether you choose the counseling or psychology path, you’ll be on your way to impacting change.


We are committed to making this event accessible to everyone, so we have added automatic closed captions in Zoom. If you require other accommodations to participate fully, please contact the Office of Admissions or call 312.662.4058 with as much notice as possible.

Please contact the Office of Admissions if you have any questions about this event.

We look forward to seeing you!
