About

Not only is psychoanalysis a method of examining and understanding culture, but psychoanalysis itself, as a theory and a body of knowledge, is a cultural product. Psychoanalysis always takes place within a social and cultural matrix, even while it seeks to understand the unconscious elements in social and cultural institutions and processes.

Overview

The programs in Psychoanalysis, Society and Culture offer an open forum for the exploration and systematic analysis of the interface between psychoanalysis and the social and cultural matrix within which it is embedded. This interface becomes especially critical when we undertake research, policy formulation or clinical practice within such a multicultural society as the United States.

Programme Structure

In the Master of Arts program in Psychoanalysis, Society and Culture, students:

  •  Acquire an in-depth knowledge of the broad scope of psychoanalysis as a discipline, including its theories of unconscious motivation, affect, and the nature of the mind.
  • Learn about the range of methods used in psychoanalytic and sociocultural studies, including quantitative, qualitative, ethnographic and textual analysis, and demonstrate an understanding of the range, value and utility of data sources for interdisciplinary research in psychoanalysis and culture.
  • Acquire a grounding in critical social theory and its history, and develop a critical attitude towards the traditional disciplinary premises about the nature of mind and society.
