Department of Psychology

As one of the first departments to be founded in Christ (Deemed to be University), the Department of Psychology has grown by leaps and bounds, sustained by its commitment towards innovation in curriculum, pedagogy and ground-breaking initiatives. The vision of the department is to promote high academic standards in psychology, by creating an optimal and enriching learning environment, fostering ongoing professional and personal development and contributing effectively to society’s needs.

The Department runs a range of programmes including Certificate courses, Undergraduate programmes, Post Graduate programmes with three specializations and Research degrees in psychology (M.Phil. and Ph.D.). Our students demonstrate a high degree of self awareness, are service oriented and are encouraged to embrace humane values in their vocation.

The Department realizes its vision to promote high academic standards through a continuous and dynamic curriculum review process based on feedback from peers, professionals, potential employers and students. A variety of student-centred teaching and learning pedagogies are practised by the faculty members. These include seminars, experiential methodologies, laboratory training, conferences, workshops, field-based studies, film-based discussions and interactions with field experts.
