About Department of Psychology

Department of Psychology established in this college at Under Graduate level since 1981 and thereafter psychology being taught at special level. Since the inception of this course many meritorious students have studied in the department and they scored with flying colors at university level. Earlier sincere academicians and expert professors trained the students and they too were great stalwarts with their academic and professional experience.

Since 2008 Post Graduate (non grant) course was started after the huge demand of our B.A. students. Our college is affiliated with S.P. University of Pune and many of department students received merit ranks at  B.A.& M.A. levels. Till now more than 10 students were in first 10 ranks of SPPU at M.A. level. In 2015 Ms Prachi Pahtak attained University gold medal in the faculty of mental, moral & social Sciences and she has  also obtained university medal for the subject Psychology at first time in the history of the department.

Many of the present faculty members are the alumnus of this same college. Some of our past students are working at  renowned institutes in India and abroad too.

Ankur yearly event involving both U.G. & P.G. students is the best practice of the department. This event is organized every year since 2009, covering various psychological issues, themes in a form of posters, guest lectures, quiz competitions and eminent persons engaging in workshop. Many of our post graduate students  are participating in Avishkar competition and also attending and presenting research papers at national and state level seminars conferences.
