  • Duration: 3 Year
  • Eligibility: 10+2 level from any recognized board in India or Overseas

B.A. (Hons.) in Psychology aims at offering a general framework within which psychology teaching may be organized. It serves twin goals of responding to the needs of students to grow as competent, self-reflective learners with relevant academic and professional skills and to prepare them as contributors to the growing discipline of psychology.

In order to achieve the aims of undergraduate program in psychology Core (Foundational) Courses and Electives (Specialization) are envisaged. The Core courses are designed to promote common educational edifice for the discipline. They are essential as they provide foundational knowledge and enable the students to take up more specialized courses of their choice.

Care is taken to bring in the elements of skill to enhance employment opportunities. It is to be remembered that a significant number of students are admitted to Graduation Program after having done Psychology in 12th grade but many come without background and exposure. So the transition is made smooth for both the groups.
