ABOUT THE DEPARTMENT

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.

Infrastructure

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

COURSE OUTCOME

The study of Psychology is widespread today; different disciplines of psychology are widely recognised and frequently leveraged in an array of industries. A career in psychology could take multiple trajectories.  The main objective of this course is to provide awareness about evolution of Psychology and various applications of this field. It also imparts knowledge about human behaviour and mental processes. The modern applications of psychology revolve around protecting people from emotional and physical harm and thus the knowledge will help the youth to understand and develop awareness about their own personality, identity and various psychological perils many people face daily. Despite the popular stereotype of the private practice therapist popularized by the media, students will also learn that psychology professionals actually have access to a wide variety of industries and fields, from education and criminal justice to marketing and politics. The course also broadens the understanding of gender identity and culture which in turn will help in creating change in our society.  Lastly and essentially, this course on Psychology will help students in large because it can explain why people act the way they do. With this kind of insight an individual can improve on his/her decision making, stress management and behaviour based on understanding past behaviour to better predict future behaviour. All of the topics included in this specific course can help students to have a successful career, better relationships, more self confidence, improving health & well being and overall better communication.
