Master of Arts in Psychology: Specialization in Military Psychology
Mental health professionals with specialized knowledge of military psychology are in high demand for working with the distinct needs and trauma experienced by military personnel, retirees, veterans, and their families. Alarming increases in psychological issues among these populations and the growing need for practitioners trained to treat them have been increasingly well documented and publicized in recent years. Drawing on the Adler School’s longtime expertise in military psychology education, this one-of-a-kind online program prepares military and non-military practitioners with understanding of the theoretical evidence, scientific research, and skills required for successful employment in the modern field of military psychology. Our faculty includes practitioners with real-world experience in behavioral health, psychology, and the military. Their expertise offers students a deep understanding of military culture from biological, psychological, and sociological perspectives. Students are prepared for positions in research, educational, and medical facilities; at military schools and bases; and in government including agencies such as the Pentagon and Service Headquarters Commands. Responsibilities can entail direct services for military personnel and their families during deployment and upon returning to civilian life. Our emphasis on socially responsible practice means our students and faculty embrace a broad range of perspectives and theoretical approaches. They work to build and maintain bridges across social, economic, cultural, racial, and political systems. They empower others to identify and address shared problems, and foster the development of social equality, justice, and respect through compassionate action.
