This program is an in-depth engagement with the work of C.G. Jung and post-Jungians.

Carl JungIt offers a container where students can explore, apply, and advance depth psychology—especially Jungian and archetypal studies—both personally and vocationally. The program is centered around the recognition that the theories and practices within the Jungian tradition continue to offer valuable insights and tools for working with the psyche beyond the analytic encounter.

The specialization surveys Jungian and archetypal theories and practices most applicable to healing, transformation, self-expression, creativity, and the development of consciousness. Students evaluate both the limitations and the potentials of Jungian psychology in contemporary contexts. Working together in a dynamic learning community, they advance, apply, and imagine new extensions for these theories and practices in the world.

Students in the Jungian and Archetypal Studies specialization
• Read deeply and broadly from the Collected Works of Jung and the newly published Red Book, as well as other core texts in the depth psychological tradition
