About the Program

Emory University’s Graduate School of Arts and Sciences offers a Certificate in Psychoanalytic Studies that is designed to give students a thorough knowledge of psychoanalysis across a range of disciplines. The Psychoanalytic Studies Program (PSP) deals with the theory, application, and history of psychoanalytic thought and practice. It is not a clinical training program.  

The program draws faculty from Emory College, the Law School, and the Department of Psychiatry in the School of Medicine. In addition, faculty affiliated with the Emory University Psychoanalytic Institute participate in the program, linking the academy with the psychiatric and psychoanalytic communities.

PSP students are provided a great deal of flexibility in designing courses of study to suit their unique needs and interests. Because psychoanalytic thought is not bound to one discipline, students are encouraged to cross disciplinary and intellectual boundaries.
