Psychoanalytic Studies (research)
MA by dissertation, PhD and MPhil
We offer research supervision in the following fields: child development; conceptual analysis; creativity; gender; group and institutional dynamics; history of psychoanalysis (including Jungian analysis); Jungian thought; philosophical issues in psychoanalysis; psychoanalysis and the arts; psychoanalysis and education; psychoanalysis and religion; psychoanalytic methodology in clinical and non-clinical fields, especially politics and sociology; psychoanalytic theory (eg Freudian, Kleinian, Jungian, object-relations and group theory); psychosis; refugee studies; and trauma and violence.
Our graduates go on to a number of different destinations, including further study and training in psychoanalysis, Jungian analysis, or psychoanalytic psychotherapy. Many of our students are already professionals, clinical and non-clinical, so return to their existing fields, either in jobs or further training, and use their time with us to deepen their understanding of their work.
