Jungian and Post-Jungian Studies

This programme gives our students a deep academic grounding in Jungian and post-Jungian theory and practice; the 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-Jungians and scholars; students explore clinical theory and applications in areas such as: culture and gender studies; social and political theory; philosophy; myth; and religion.

Our applicants should have a good 1st degree (1st or upper 2nd Class) or an equivalent professional qualification, plus a sample of written work demonstrating academic ability. Applicants without such qualifications, who can otherwise demonstrate relevant experience and academic ability, will also be considered.
