Boston Graduate School of Psychoanalysis - New Jersey

A branch of the Boston Graduate School of Psychoanalysis, BGSP-NJ offers two Master of Arts degrees at our Livingston, NJ campus – the Master of Arts in Mental Health Counseling and the Master of Arts in Psychoanalysis.

Students from all walks of life enroll in the Master's programs, whether to become a professional counselor, to prepare for post-graduate psychoanalytic training, to supplement their current clinical work, or to enrich their work with people in other fields. Students gain a deeper understanding of people in their full complexity through BGSP-NJ’s integrative approach to learning. They learn how people develop their emotional and mental lives, how people operate from motivations outside their own awareness, and why people interact and behave in characteristic ways.

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. The program at the New Jersey branch advances this mission by introducing students from the vibrant and diverse New Jersey/tri-state community to studies in professional counseling and psychoanalysis without requiring them to acquire prior training in another profession.
