Department of Psychology was established in 2019. The department offers Under Graduate Programme- B.Sc Psychology (Model I) – 40 seats. Psychology is the scientific study of the mind, brain, and behaviour. It’s an experimental and observational science, in which evidence from research studies is used to develop and evaluate theories. It focuses on building and testing theories to help explain how people interact with each other and the world around them. Psychologists are interested in the way biological and social factors influence how we behave, and how interests and abilities differ from person to person. They also study how we perceive, think, and learn about the world around us. They examine how we communicate verbally and non-verbally, and how and why our mental abilities change across our lives. Our programme has a strong emphasis on developing skills in research methods and statistical analysis, to support our research-led teaching.
To be a nationally recognized leader in undergraduate education, where students and faculty establish close collaborations 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 local, national and global communities.
To achieve excellence in the teaching of undergraduate students, the generation and sharing of knowledge through teaching and mentoring, and to apply knowledge through outreach and service, tackling social and psychological issues.
