About

This Theoretical Psychoanalytic Studies (Non-Clinical) MSc at the University College London (UCL) gives students a grounding in the nature, history, content and context of psychoanalytic theory, as used by practising psychoanalysts. 

Overview

This Theoretical Psychoanalytic Studies (Non-Clinical) MSc at the University College London (UCL) provides a comprehensive introduction to current psychoanalytic thinking, rooted in the history and development of ideas and with attention to the application of psychoanalytic ideas to other fields.

Why study this degree at UCL?

The Psychoanalysis Unit is a thriving academic centre for psychoanalytic research, with its own MPhil/PhD programme alongside the MSc. It has affiliations with the International Psychoanalytic Association, the Institute of Psychoanalysis and the Anna Freud Centre. The unit is based within UCL's Division of Psychology & Language Sciences  which undertakes world-leading research and teaching in mind, behaviour and language.

Careers

This MSc provides a very good background to formal clinical training in psychoanalysis, adult or child psychotherapy or counselling and nearly half of our graduates pursue these options. A similar number continue with their academic studies either at UCL or elsewhere, often registering for a PhD in either psychoanalytic theory or empirical research.

Employability

This programme acts as a springboard especially for further clinical or theoretical training in the field, although it is not itself a clinical qualification. The teaching is organised and provided by eminent academics and psychoanalysts with international reputations. The option to take the Institute of Psychoanalysis Foundation Course, part of which counts towards the degree, helps with that career path. Many other students go on to research posts in the unit or with our large network of clinical research collaborators in London and around the world.
