Course summary

Whether you are looking to improve your prospects of training 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.

By completing the MA course, you will develop key employability skills including thinking analytically, effective essay-writing, research methods in analytical psychology and a broader understanding of depth psychological thinking, applicable to clinical and academic work. Our course could lead you to study for a PhD in Psychosocial and Psychoanalytic Studies/Jungian and Post-Jungian Studies or to work in clinical or non-clinical settings.

Topics covered on the course include:

  • The history of analytical psychology, including key contributions made by women
  • Intellectual precursors to, and influences on, Jung's psychology
  • Key Jungian and Post-Jungian texts
  • The role and place of mythology in Jung's thinking
  • Jung's psychology of religion
  • Central Jungian concepts, their clinical utility, and their relevance in a contemporary context
  • The applicability of Jung's thought to other academic disciplines
  • The utility of Jung's psychology to understanding culture and society

Our Pre-Sessional course in ‘Basic Jungian Concepts’ allows you to start our MA course with a firm foundation in Jungian concepts.

The course is taught through distance learning meaning the entire course is taught online with no face-to-face, in-person teaching (This applies to both the full and part-time variant.) You will graduate with the same qualification as our campus-based MA, the only difference being you will attend all teaching virtually and not on campus.

Your future

Our graduates go on to several different destinations, including further study and training in psychoanalysis, Jungian analysis, or psychoanalytic psychotherapy.

Many of our students are already professionals, clinical and non-clinical, so return to their existing fields, either in jobs or further training, and use study with us to deepen their understanding of their work.
