“Good Psychology should include all the methodological techniques, without having loyalty to one method, one idea or one person”
– Abraham Maslow.
With an Affirmative quote on “Psychology” by one of the best psychologists the world has ever seen, the Department of Psychology at STC functions very much in congruence with this quote. We provide an enhanced academic curriculum to the students being framed in such a way that every student gets fascinated by it and exerts his complete willingness to learn the course to its profound level.
At present, the Department has a total of 89 students hailing from not only Pollachi but from most of the districts in Tamil Nadu. A significant percentage of students have also been joining this course from the neighbouring states every year. The department very much ensures that the students gain the practical knowledge from the real world by encouraging them to undergo internship in either clinical or industrial or school area in their final year for a period of ten days. This will be a launch pad for them to determine their future in this stream.
The Psychology laboratory gets equipped with various apparatus based experiments so that the student could get an idea on how human behaviour and cognitive processes can be easily comprehended by means of various experiments. The students are encouraged to participate and present papers in various national/ international conferences right from their first year so that it could be a brilliant exposure for them into the world of research and discussions at various elite forums.
After completing the under graduation in psychology, the student shall be able to make a decision on his postgraduate career primarily based on his interest and capability. The scope in the field of psychology has been increasingly felt in the society today and the student could get an optimistic future by being in either clinical field or industrial field or in school settings.
We assure you all that by getting into this course at this institution, you will get enlightened by the realm of psychology and witness a progressive transformation in yourselves by the end of three years.
