Department of Psychology
The Department of Psychology is established in 1995 with an undergraduate course in the triple main stream (Psychology, Sociology & Sanskrit) and belongs to the Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences.
In the year 1998 the triple main courses were dispensed and Psychology began to be offered only as one of the interdisciplinary subjects for the B.A. Sanskrit core course.
PhD programme was started in the department in the year 2003, which was later on (2005) converted to Integrated MPhil - PhD programme and again the same was bifurcated in 2012. P.G. programme with emphasis on Ancient Indian Psychology and Clinical Psychology was begun in the academic year 2005 - 2006. No other Universities in Kerala offer a course in Indian Psychology, which has high links to Sanskrit and Sanskrit Texts.
