  • Psychology lab: We have developed resources for the Psychology Lab, our Lab has many recent tests and instruments which are considered important for imparting required skills and training to our students in diagnosis of Psychological traits, characteristics and problems.
  • Guest/ Experts’ Lectures: Within one year we have tried to organize various activities and Guest lectures for student’s personal, skill and knowledge development. Eminent academicians from Delhi and other universities and professionals working in the field of Psychology have been called to provide deeper insights to the students regarding the subject. Prof Girishwar Mishra (Professor, Delhi University), Dr. Tushar Singh (Assistant Professor, BHU), Dr. Suneet Verma (Associate Professor, University of Delhi), Prof. Gopa Bhardwaj (Professor, University of Delhi), Dr. Srividya Rajaram (Clinical Psychologist), Dr. Naveen Kumar (Associate Professor, B.R Ambedkar college.), Dr. Arvind Misra, Associate Professor, JNU]
  •  Field Visits: It is strongly believed that for the overall development of the student of Psychology it is pertinent to provide them exposure and learning outside classrooms. We have made consistent efforts over a period of year in this direction. The details is provided below
  1. We have taken our students for field visits to NGOs in Delhi like Khushi, (working for the education of the underprivileged students) where students tried to understand the problems of children in continuing education and provided them required solutions and motivations to study. These children were also taught through creative and innovative ways to develop their interest in studies.
  2. Our students also visited Widow ashrams in Vrindavan where they tried to understand the ‘life of widows in Vrindavan’, by carrying out interviews using semi-structured interview schedules, and recording and analyzing the interviews.
  3. Recently students have visited the Defence Institute of Psychological Research (DIPR), an Indian defense laboratory of the Defence Research & Development Organization (DRDO). Located in Delhi, its main function is research in the area of psychology for armed forces personnel. Students came to know of the kind of researches carried out in the defence arena; the career opportunities and criteria for making a career in DIPR.
