The undergraduate department of Psychology is a thriving, fully equipped department with many success stories from the faculty and the students. Our students have consistently won laurels for the department and the college. They have consistently been University Toppers, College Presidents, winners of college, university and national level competitions. In the past 5 years students have presented research papers at national level conferences and even won awards for their research. The faculty team believes in all round student development and encourages students to chase their dreams wherever it may take them. Students of psychology benefit from the vast experiences of the faculty and the external resources engaged for their exposure.


Collaborations with NGOS’, corporate and wellness agencies like Inner Hour, Therappo, Insight Counselling Services, Vrudhi Foundation, Prafulta Psychological Services, Art of Living Foundation, World Federation of Warriers and ARDSI have all led to events that reach out to the community and provide students an opportunity to intern and work with experts in the field of mental health in India. Psycho phonics (with the support of Indian Oil), World Mental Health Day and other days relevant to the cause of well being are celebrated with great enthusiasm where students take the lead in organizing, coordinating with various agencies and building a network that can support them professionally and emotionally even after graduation.
