Psychosocial and Psychoanalytic Studies (Including Foundation Year) - University of Essex

Our four-year BA Psychoanalytic Studies (including foundation year) is open to UK and EU students only. It will be suitable for you if your academic qualifications do not yet meet our entrance requirements for the three-year version of this course. From year one you will continue developing your academic skills alongside discovering the different schools of psychoanalysis and explore its applications to different settings and objects of study - from individual clinical work, to groups, culture and society. At its core, psychoanalysis believes that understanding human experience is not just about looking at external factors, from the places we live and work to the people we talk to, but also at internal ones - our inner motivations, fantasies, and defence mechanisms, to name a few.
