The Boston Graduate School of Psychoanalysis is a regionally accredited, degree-granting, independent school that incorporates the element of emotional learning in all its campuses and programs. It believes that new levels of academic excellence and personal growth can be achieved by connecting emotional experiences with theoretical concepts.
Founded in 1973, it started as a small institute that offered a single post-graduate psychoanalytic training program. Today, it has become a graduate school that offers master’s and doctoral degrees in psychoanalysis. It has its main campus (Boston Campus) in Brookline, Massachusetts and a branch campus in New York City,. It is accredited by the New England Association of Schools and Colleges indicating that it has met the criteria for the assessment of institutional quality.
The total enrolment in Boston is 122 comprised of 70% female and 30% male students. Of this number, 29% are full-time, 54% are part-time and 17% are “research only” students. The average class size is 10 while the student/faculty ratio is 2.5:1. Educational cost is $ 5,750.00 for tuition, $ 460.00 for fees and $ 2,400.00 for analysis per semester.
The school’s clinical program has attracted the attention of students and practicing clinicians alike. The latter are predominantly holders of advanced degrees in social work, psychology or medicine, most of whom seek to fill the gap between motivation and understanding of human nature. The foundation for coherent clinical work is built with externship and internship experience that combine relevant courses, case management seminars, ongoing supervision and training analysis. The existence of Boston Graduate School of Psychoanalysis has opened the doors to psychoanalytic education which has previously been open to a limited few such as those holding medical degrees.
