The Masters of Philosophy in Psychoanalytic Studies offers graduates a thorough introduction to the history, theory and applications in clinical work and in the wider culture of psychoanalysis from Freud to modern writers in this broad field.  The course is of interest to people from a variety of backgrounds, including graduates of psychology, philosophy, and other university programmes, as well mental health professionals, people who work in the fields of the arts, education and health, among others.

Pursuing this course was one of the best decisions, it was the most evolving and enriching journey which shone my professional as well as intrapersonal skills and meanings. I appreciate the support of my wonderful colleagues who made this philosophical enroute so insightful.  All the lecturers, especially Dr. John O`Connor have always been our guardian angel, his support and guidance this M.Phil. a success, allowed us to envisage a better future. It has revolutionized my belief system and strengthened it with a realistic liberal mental apparatus.
