Department of Psychology
“The greatest discovery of my generation is that human beings can alter their lives by altering their attitudes of mind”
Psychology is the scientific study of human behavior and mental processes. A good deal of human behavior is familiar but puzzling and mysterious to us. Therefore a course in psychology will help one to understand the complexities of human behavior and answers the why’s and how’s of behavior.
Our Department aims to provide an environment which facilitates in-depth, quality education to students aspiring to understand themselves and others. The major focus is to develop a holistic outlook toward life and prepare the students for their careers by imparting in-depth knowledge, critical thinking, research inquiry, skills in various fields of Psychology and to develop sensitivity to psychological dynamics for better individual and societal wellbeing.
The Psychology department is well furnished with a library, well-equipped laboratory, educational models, charts and CD’s. A variety of student-centered teaching and training programs are included. The department employs innovative teaching techniques including power point presentations, paper presentations, group discussions, reactions to articles, peer assisted learning, case analysis, self-management projects, laboratory training, conferences, workshops, field based studies, exhibitions and interactions with field experts.
The course offers papers which focuses on the general Psychology, physiological psychology, the development of the individual, an overview of Statistics and also covers diverse areas like Abnormal Psychology, Organizational behaviour, Counselling Psychology and Social Psychology thus providing an exposure to the different areas of Psychology. Laboratory work forms an integral part of the course. The students get an opportunity to apply the principles learnt in the above theory papers by conducting case studies and observing the applications of these concepts.
