Psychology is the study of people; their behavior, motivations, thoughts and feelings. Psychologists are interested in how people act as individuals and interact in groups. They use their understanding together with counseling and other forms of therapy, to help people avoid, overcome or control their problems. The Department of Psychology was established as an independent department in 1986. The introduction of various teaching programmes in Psychology started in phases with B.A. in 1981, Ph.D. in 1984, B.A. Honors in 1985, M.A. Applied Psychology in 1989, and Advanced Diploma in Counseling Psychology initiated in 2001. It has now grown into a full-fledged department providing excellent facilities for teaching and research with specialization in organizational, social, clinical, and counseling areas of psychology. During this short span of time, the department’s academic activities have been recognized both at national and international levels.
