Message

from the HOD

It gives me immense pleasure to offer this unique program, B.Sc Psychology (Honors) which is a right blend of natural sciences and social sciences. We understand the growing need for mental health advocacy and the abysmally low psychologists to population ratio across the globe. Hence, our department provides a nurturing ground through curricular, co-curricular, and extra-curricular activities for the future ambassadors of Psychological well-being. We ensure that they are sculpted for excellence and serve society with a conscience. Just come with your passion, irrespective of your past orientations and training, we shall give you the right launchpad for establishing your career in any branch of Psychology.
