NYGSP’s highly individualized approach integrates the teaching of psychoanalytic theory with developing the ability to discern psychodynamics in oneself and others. Combining comprehensive theoretical knowledge with the capacity to observe unconscious dynamics is a transformative educational experience that provides solid preparation for postgraduate psychoanalytic training.

We invite you to explore the NYGSP community.

“What I appreciate most about the master’s program is the sense of accomplishment it gave me and the unique and inspiring framework it provided for understanding human motivation and behavior.”

Hanni Dimitstein, Graduate

A branch of the Boston Graduate School of Psychoanalysis, NYGSP offers a signature program, the MA in Psychoanalytic Studies, which provides a solid foundation in psychoanalytic theory and prepares graduates for licensure-qualifying psychoanalytic training. 

What makes us different:
  • Graduates are eligible for advanced placement in the licensure-qualifying psychoanalytic training program of our sister school, the Center for Modern Psychoanalytic Studies
  • Individual academic advisement for every student
  • Full and part-time options available, allowing students to progress at their own pace
  • Small class size for individualized instruction
  • Classes taught by clinicians, not just theoreticians

NYGSP is a campus of the Boston Graduate School of Psychoanalysis, which is accredited by the New England Commission on Higher Education (NECHE). NYGSP operates in partnership with the Center for Modern Psychoanalytic Studies.

The hallmark of NYGSP’s education process is pairing a firm grounding in theory with experiential learning. This unique integrative approach promotes a deep understanding of theory and develops the ability to observe the psychodynamics underlying people’s feelings and behavior. 

The only accredited, independent graduate school of psychoanalysis in the country, the Boston Graduate School of Psychoanalysis has been opening doors to psychoanalysis for over 40 years, increasing access to psychoanalytic training, education, and treatment.

NYGSP is a vibrant learning community with small, stimulating classes that meet in the evening to accommodate the schedules of working students. Students have the option of attending full- or part-time, allowing them to progress through the program at their own pace. 

Now accepting applications for Fall 2024.

We have a student-focused culture that fosters academic success through personal development and the understanding of human nature.
