Course content

How can Jungian psychology explain historical events, culture and society? What are the possibilities and limitations of applying analytical psychology to various socio-cultural fields or topics?

Whether you are looking to train as a Jungian analyst or psychotherapist, or learn the skills to carry out research in a related area of analytical psychology, our unique and internationally acclaimed MA Jungian and Post-Jungian Studies will give you a deep academic grounding in Jungian and post-Jungian theory and practice.

Our course takes an informative, critical and reflective stance in relation to the key texts of Jung, the diverse contexts from which analytical psychology emerged, and the core concepts developed by Jung, post-Jungian scholars and clinicians. You explore clinical theory and applications in areas such as culture and gender studies, social and political theory, philosophy, myth and religion.

Our course is offered one year full-time or two years part-time, with modules specifically timetabled to enable those not local to the university to attend. Please note there is no distance-learning option.

Whether you continue to study for a PhD or go into work in a clinical or non-clinical setting, you will graduate from our leading Centre for Psychoanalytic Studies having been taught by a team of leading academics and analysts from across the spectrum of Jungian theory and practice.

Key texts of Jung

What do you know about Jung’s theories on myth? How do you position this writing within his work as a whole? And how did Jung deploy his psychological theories to critique science, religion and society? You examine key Jungian texts in depth, critically exploring and analysing his work and its application.
