About the Boston Graduate School of Psychoanalysis

For 40 years, the Boston Graduate School of Psychoanalysis (BGSP) has endeavored to instill positive individual and societal change through an understanding of the human unconscious. Established as a small center of study in 1973, the school grew into two branches— the main campus on Beacon Street in Brookline, Massachusetts, and the other branch located on West Tenth Street in Manhattan, New York. Both schools are fully accredited: The New York campus offers a Master of Arts in Psychoanalysis, while the Brookine campus offers a Master of Arts in Psychoanalysis, a Master of Arts in Psychoanalysis, Society & Culture, and a Master of Arts in Psychoanalytic Counseling, as well as a Doctoral degree in Psychoanalysis and a Doctoral degree in Psychoanalysis, Society & Culture, a Certificate in Psychoanalysis, and a One Year Program.  Across both campuses, the school offers part- and full-time courses of study.

The Boston Graduate School of Psychoanalysis offers training for students interested in clinical practice as well as in research and welcomes any student who holds a Bachelor’s degree or higher, regardless of the student’s area of expertise. The institution promotes a firm belief in the power of psychoanalytic theory to effect change both in the clinical arena and in other private and public organizations. As such, it encourages dialogue between academic disciplines and those of the broader society. BGSP prepares its graduates to utilize their understanding of emotional and mental functioning for endeavors that benefit individuals and society. Graduates apply what they have learned to careers in mental health agencies, school systems, universities, profit and non-profit organizations, and private practice.

Furthermore, the school stands out as the only regionally accredited school of psychoanalytic studies in the United States to grant graduate degrees. It first received accreditation from the New England Association of Schools and Colleges (NEASC) in 1995, an achievement that opened psychoanalytic study to any qualified and engaged student irrespective of prior courses of study.
