Focus areas

The Department of Psychology at SNDT Churchgate is a large and dynamic Post graduate Department offering Masters and Doctoral programs in Counseling, Clinical and Industrial Psychology and in Career Guidance and Developmental counseling, catering to a large student strength from Mumbai as well as various parts of the country. The program offered consists predominantly of hands on training in various professional domains of psychology, along with creation of a strong base in Psychological theory and Research methodology in Psychology.

The Department of Psychology also runs the program on Career Guidance and Developmental counseling, readying students to serve in the future as career guidance counselors and work with young minds on the path to career success.

The teaching in this Department is multi-method, including a wide range of techniques ranging from lectures to case presentations, simulations, live field based cases and discussions, career exhibitions, workshops, and assignments, including open book exams. The research component too is demanding but readies the student for professional writing for publishing and presentations in their chosen field.

The faculty also conducts remedial sessions, sessions where students more comfortable with languages other than English are accommodated and trained, although the medium of instruction is English.

Job placements: Typically, students are absorbed into the fabric of professional psychology in the city and surround through campus placement, networking by faculty with various NGO, GOs, corporates and research organizations where students who pass out of the Department can be absorbed.

Evaluation comprises of 50% internal assessment and 50% external examinations, which ensures continuous assessment and involvement of the student all through the year, with a high level of motivation to perform.
