Psychoanalysis and the Humanities (Minor)

Program Description

The Psychoanalysis and the Humanities minor is designed to provide an interdisciplinary focus on the potential uses of psychoanalysis to study and research human behavior, the arts, contemporary culture, politics, and more. Students will have the opportunity to study psychoanalysis in relation to any number of other fields or approaches, including semiotics, literature, history, film studies, gender and sexuality.

This minor is based on an inter-school collaboration between the Gallatin School and CAS (Department of Comparative Literature) and does not restrict students in any major, school, or program.
