Master of Arts (MA) Psychology – English Track

This MA programme explores one of the most differentiated and contemporary perspectives of the human psyche, as indeed one of the most modern of the human sciences. As a science of the unconscious, psychoanalysis is more than merely a therapeutic method.

The programme also represents a theory of science and knowledge, one that is located between the natural sciences and the humanities, cultural studies and social sciences, and which connects these traditional disciplines in an innovative, forward-thinking manner.
