Initiation and brief overview

The Department of Psychology was started in 2014 as a General Department. The Department has a sustained good academic record. At present, the Psychology Department has a two-member faculty with two SACT teachers.

Vision and outlook

We focus on inculcating a love and interest for Psychology among our students with particular effort towards theoretical knowledge for deeper understanding of a concept and practical education for practical experience. In accordance with the larger discipline of our college, the entire syllabus is completed before the semester exams take place.

Methods of teaching

Apart from classroom lectures or the chalk and talk method, the Department uses equipment for practical work, audio-visual aids such as power-point presentations and the like, to stimulate learning interests. Regular assessments through written classwork and class-tests ensure that the students are well prepared for their final end-semester examinations.


The Department maintains a specific Laboratory with all relevant Laboratory Equipment necessary for practical work.
