MS Clinical Psychology

Owing to our success at the undergraduate level, the Department strongly felt the need to start a graduate program. After careful and deliberate thinking and diligent planning, the Department of Psychology started offering an MS in Clinical Psychology. It is a two-year, full-time program, with classes held five days a week. 

Teaching will be in the form of lectures, discussions, tutorials, group projects, individual presentations, demonstrations, role-plays, and writing psychological assessments and clinical case reports based on the students’ placements. The students would be required to do their supervised clinical placements in psychiatry departments of hospitals and/or special education facilities.
