Graphology Training

Info Centre >  Training/Formation

This page shows organisations that offer tuition in graphology. A key is used to distinguish between providers of Distance Learning (DL) and Personal Tuition (PT). Distance Learning methods may be offered by post, internet, e-mail, video, audio- cassette, telephone, computer software or by other means. Personal Tuition may be offered in a classroom situation or as one-to-one teaching. Prices vary, some tuition is free of charge.  Programmes may be as short as one day but practitioners recommend courses of at least three years (over 240 hours) duration. Generally Individuals are not listed; to find a personal tutor close to you, contact a national association.

Universities are frequently used as a venue for
tuition, and in some cases offer courses themselves and Graphology is sometimes taught as a part of other subjects. The designation "degree" and "diploma" in graphology is used sometimes by course providers; the content of these is variable. 

Perhaps the most famous Diploma is offered by the Société Française de Graphologie (Paris), with various examination centres outside France. Degree courses recognised by the Italian Ministry of Education are taught at the Universities of Urbino and Lumsa (Rome).

In 1997 the Ministry of Education of Argentina formally recognized a degree in graphology, now taught at Emerson University College, Buenos Aires. 

Universities which have offered partial or complete courses in the past (and may be active in some way now), include the following: UK - Loughborough; Glasgow University; Spain - Universidad de Valencia, Universidad Complutense de Madrid, (Estudios Criminología and Facultad de Medecina), Universidad Pontificia de Salamanca, Universidad de Córdoba, Universidad de Barcelona; Germany - Heidelberg, Cologne, Munich, 
Fribourg, Hamburg, Bielefeld, Berlin; Italy - Messina. (See this article in Spanish on Graphology at Universities and a current list, in Spanish of courses offered..)

Summer schools have become popular in recent years. They offer an intensive one or two week course on specific topics, to update knowledge or to specialise. Introductory summer schools are also available for newcomers to the subject.

Certification, accreditation, licensing, qualified and expert are terms sometimes used in discussing graphological training.  Assessment may be by written essays, multiple choice tests, analysis portraits, oral questioning and other techniques.

The nature and status of graphology varies from country to country.   It is therefore difficult to make a definitive statement about whether a given course leads to a graphologist who is competent to operate in a specific field.  The only common outcome from following any course is that a certificate of completion is likely to be awarded.

Another useful thing about courses are that they give a structured reading programme. Click here to see  a list of the most important books for graphology training, based on the reading recommendations of the main European courses.

Many institutions allow the student to design a personalised study program. It is perfectly acceptable for graphology to be proposed as one of these Masters or Doctorate programs. A good example of this was described in the AHAF Journal 30(6) November-December 1997. It told how Prescott College in Arizona, USA offered an accredited Master of Arts Degree - "self-directed and limited residence." One student, Mark Reddy, designed his MA and called it "The Psychology of Handwriting"

 In 2003 Urbino offered a Masters Degree in Graphology (see http://www.grafologia.it  for details)

PT Vanguard
Developed the Vanguard Certification Program. Contact Sheila Lowe for a syllabus.

Sheila Lowe's Self-Study program in Gestalt graphology is sold by the
lesson, rather than the entire course. Students study at their own pace, and
Sheila is available to answer questions. There are currently four
comprehensive lessons available by email for $65 each or snail mail $75
each. Lesson one covers Spatial Arrangement, Lesson two-- Writing Form,
Lesson three-- Writing movement, and Lesson four--puts the first three
together in the context of Maslow's Hierarchy of Needs, plus the beginnings
of a graphological report.
