A Message from the Program Director

“Our educational process serves our students both intellectually and emotionally, allowing for an unmatched integration of theory and personal growth.”

– Mimi Crowel, Ph.D., Program Director
Welcome to the New York Graduate School of Psychoanalysis

In 2005, the Boston Graduate School of Psychoanalysis brought its master’s program to New York, offering a Master of Arts in Psychoanalytic Studies, the only such program in New York. Here at NYGSP, the emphasis is not only on the didactic and intellectual but also on the experiential and personal. At every level of the curriculum, the faculty works to resolve emotional blocks to learning. In this way, theory is melded to experience, and together new understandings are forged that resonate to one’s core. No other academic discourse exists like that of psychoanalysis where in studying the mind one studies oneself.

NYGSP is located in the heart of Greenwich Village, long known for its creative and intellectual fervor. Our doors are open to anyone from any walk of life who is motivated to begin this kind of study. The journey is sometimes exhilarating and sometimes difficult, and it certainly will present its challenges because nowhere in our culture is such an education available in any systemized manner. But those who undertake this program do change. Students attest to it. Some have gone on to pursue psychoanalytic training; others have applied their newfound knowledge to the fields of business, the arts, and education.

I invite you to see the benefits for yourself.
