The Post Graduate Department of Psychology offers two-year full-time M Sc program in Psychology with specialization in Clinical Psychology. Keeping pace with the disciplinary advances the program would address knowledge about psychological functioning at individual and social levels in an all-encompassing manner. With the goal of acquiring specialized knowledge, the program would allow students to nurture their academic interest in clinical and other research domains of psychology, along with personal growth and citizenship. The spirit of interdisciplinary growth is kept in view while conceptualizing a four-tier system- A) CORE PAPERS in the first three PG semesters (papers, which can be considered to be fundamental in giving PG students a larger perspective of Psychology as a social science discipline, irrespective of specialization); B) SPECIALIZATION PAPERS (specific theory papers within the subject of Clinical Psychology); and C) ELECTIVE PAPERS ( a wide variety, across all disciplinary specializations, primarily conceptualized by individual faculties (based on their own interest/expertise), offered from time to time and chosen by students according to their preference); D) CLINICAL and RESEARCH TRACK ( encouraging students to focus either on the practitioner model or the researcher model of clinical psychology training). The program would strive to prepare competent professional psychologists who would excel in knowledge, orientation, and practice in psychology, with high ethical standards and social relevance.
