The Department of Psychology was established in 2009–10 with the vision to implement a sustained and excellent psychology programme for the overall development and betterment of the society. Keeping this requirement in mind the department of psychology offers a full-time, three-year BA (Hons.) programme not only to prepare the students for the present competitive era but also enhance their overall personality to succeed in the job market. It also offers a full-time two- year MA/ M.Sc. programme with two months internship, where a student has the freedom to choose one area of specialization, which in itself creates demand for skills required for managing knowledge, creative abilities, talents, interpersonal skill and aptitude. It thus equips them to deal with different functional areas of psychology.
The curriculum provides intensive instruction in psychological theory and methodology and exposes students to important applications of psychology knowledge with its emphasis on critical reading and thinking, communication, and active learning. The courses are designed to teach basic and advanced principles and methods and to promote analytical skills so that students may deal with complex phenomena, theoretical or applied, with an appropriate level of theoretical sophistication and critical evaluation. The department also offers Ph.D. degree in psychology and other interdisciplinary subjects.
