Who We Are
The Boston Graduate School of Psychoanalysis is an independent, non-profit, tax-exempt 501(c)(3) organization incorporated in Massachusetts, authorized by the Massachusetts Board of Higher Education as a degree-granting institution, and governed by its Board of Trustees and administration. BGSP also has campuses in New Jersey and New York.
The New Jersey Campus is governed directly by BGSP's Board and administration. Because of the intricacies of New York state law, BGSP’s New York branch campus, the New York Graduate School of Psychoanalysis (NYGSP), is separately chartered by the New York State Board of Regents. However, NYGSP is governed as a branch of BGSP (and accredited as such), and is commonly controlled by the BGSP Board of Trustees, President, and Officers.
BGSP’s faculty lives what it teaches. As professional psychoanalysts or scholars, faculty members are dedicated to the practice and study of psychoanalysis, whether through their work in the community, research and scholarship, or private practices.
BGSP’s students and alumni share two things in common: curiosity about the human condition, and the courage to explore it.
