Academic Programs

B.Sc. Psychology

The three-year B.Sc. psychology programme is divided into six semesters, each of six months duration. The weekly schedule for a psychology trainee consists of six days in-campus lecture programs (six hours per day). The student has to do a dissertation based on a topic of his own choice and under the supervision of a teacher. The project work shall begin by the third semester. The student has to plan a research proposal and make an initial synopsis presentation wherein he introduces the problem, its relevance, the method, expected outcome etc., and internal evaluation of the presentation will be made. The supervising teacher will monitor the student’s progress in the study which will be evaluated internally. The final project report has to be submitted in the prescribed format (APA guidelines) by the end of the sixth semester which will be evaluated for the external examination. The student should produce a synopsis of his research work for the external examination and also make a power point presentation of the same.

The trainees are assessed through internally by the College and externally by the University.
