Department of Psychology

About the Department

The Department Of Psychology was established during the academic year 2015-16 to offer an undergraduate course in B.Sc Psychology. The Department has grown remarkably in strength and quality, facilitating the students to excel both in academic and non-academic activities.
The mission of the Department is to provide a dynamic learning environment at the undergraduate level. The department strives to develop and apply knowledge and skill sets that will allow faculty and students to engage in the science and practice of psychology. 

The Department provides a platform for undergraduates to learn the scientific principles of behaviour and mental processes, to make significant contributions to the science and practice of psychology, and to produce professionals who serve the community.
Extension activities
The Department organizes workshops, guest lectures, national seminars and research-oriented programmes to equip students with unique learning experiences. Field training and field visits are organized for hands on experience in the concerned field. We equip students to become highly competent and resilient.
