sophisticated technology, complex laws and regulations, the Internet,

Mission: The mission of EPIS Education is to provide first-rate education, training, and professional advancement for students all over the world, in programs focusing on psychoanalysis, critical theory, and phenomenology.

Our Difference: Our programs are unique, progressive, and may not fit into narrowly-conceived, typical bureaucratic standards.  As such, we do not seek accreditation by any accrediting body that may limit the quality, depth, and breadth of our programs.  The excellent quality of our programs speaks for itself (res ipsa loquitur).

We don’t just provide education in phenomenology, classical psychoanalysis, or existential psychotherapy/analysis.  In addition to these discursive practices, we also rigorously train in French Deconstruction, Critical Theory, semiology, cultural criticism, and all related scientific disciplines, including neuro-psychoanalysis.

We are different!

Location: Our main learning center is online through Skype and WebEx which can be accessed from any Internet portal.  We also have on-ground cohort groups in Missoula, MT, Southern California and are expanding.

Delivery Methods:  We offer 2 different education delivery methods:

  1. Online program with access from anywhere in the world
  2. On ground quarterly seminar system

We also will send professors to any cohort group of 6 or more students to any city in the world, on a quarterly or low-residence system.

Join the Faculty:   All graduates are entitled to become part of the research or teaching faculty.

Thesis & Article Publication: Some of our programs offer publication possibilities through EPIS Press and Presencing EPIS, the official academic journal of the institute, www.episjournal.com.
