About the Program

Considering the breadth of penetration of the conceptual corpus of psychoanalysis in different cultural and professional fields, this master’s program aims at creating an academic space where to study more in depth and do research on Jacques Lacan’s contributions to the theoretical foundations of psychoanalysis and the interdisciplinary developments which interact with other fields where subjectivity is developed.

While not unaware of the diversity of orientations in psychoanalytic theory even before Sigmund Freud’s death, this academic proposal is based on a criterion of theoretical consistency that can coherently articulate the elements of a complex conceptual building in which each notion rests on and interacts with its predecessors and anticipates future internal epistemological twists. For this reason, the program’s curriculum focuses on a journey through the turning points in Jacques Lacan’s teaching, so that students can follow it as it was produced, including its ruptures and articulations.

Duration and Requirements

Over a two-year period, students must take 18 mandatory 25-hour seminars and 4 elective 15-hour seminars. In addition, a thesis workshop is taught every month throughout the program. Assisted by specialized faculty, students receive personalized advice and guidance in their thesis-writing process.

Master’s Thesis

Submitting your thesis is the final step leading to the award of your Master’s Degree in Lacanian Psychoanalytic Theory. The content of your thesis should make an individual and original contribution to knowledge.


At the end of the program, students must take a reading comprehension test in a foreign language, after which they have up to 18 months to submit their theses. These are evaluated by a thesis committee and defended orally by the students.
