Our program is eclectic and clinically grounded. Although primarily for graduate students, we offer a changing spectrum of undergraduate courses, notably, the core course, Literature and Psychology. For Ph.D. candidates, the program provides a background in various schools of psychological theory and practical criticism. Currently, the program offers instruction and dissertation direction in psychoanalytic psychology, third-force psychology, reader-response criticism, and cognitive psychology. In our graduate courses (the names of which may vary) we offer the following topics under the general heading:

Psychological Approaches to Literature

Psychoanalytic Psychology and Criticism

Third-Force Psychology and Criticism

Reader-Response Criticism

Lacanian Psychoanalysis and Criticism

Feminist Theory and Criticism
