Overview

The MSc in Psychotherapy is a four-year part-time programme at Level 9 NFQ (120 credits). Students may exit after two years with a Graduate Diploma in Psychotherapy (60 credits). The programme comprises taught modules including the principles and practices of humanistic, cognitive-behavioural, psychodynamic and systemic approaches.

The programme, based on an integrative approach, provides students with an opportunity to work psychotherapeutically with a diversity of clients with complex and multifaceted needs.

Students will also be able to develop specialist expertise in particular fields of psychotherapy - including couples therapy, psychosexual therapeutic practice and working with trauma. It also includes supervision of research and clinical work to facilitate completion of a research thesis and a professional practice portfolio. The M.Sc programme is designed to equip students to undertake therapeutic practice with individuals and couples. The Psychotherapy course is delivered in Dublin City University via block teaching (approximately three days per month) over the academic year September to May.

Careers

There are career prospects for counsellors and psychotherapists within the Statutory, Education, Voluntary and Private sectors. Due to the programme's specialism, you will find specialist psychotherapeutic practice with individuals and couples. Alternatively, researchers in qualitative, quantitative and mixed methods research projects are always in demand.
