Career Opportunities

It is well known that the field of psychology is very diverse because the human mind and human behaviour are very complex. Psychology touches every area of our lives—work, family, relationships, and mental and physical health. Based on the application of psychology in different areas of human life, different streams of professional psychology have been developed, such as clinical psychology, counselling psychology, organizational/industrial psychology, child psychology, military psychology, sports psychology and forensic psychology. Let us know more about these streams.

Clinical Psychology 

Clinical psychologists diagnose, understand and treat psychological disorders using psychotherapy. The reason is that often the medication given by the psychiatrist to the patient is not enough to fully treat a psychological disorder, and the patient requires psychotherapy by the clinical psychologist to be able to cope with the psychological disorder. However, clinical psychologists do not deal with the people suffering from major mental health issues. They work in hospitals, drug rehabilitation centres, NGOs,etc.  Earlier an clinical psychology wasrequired to start practicing as a clinical psychologist.  Under the just announced new education policy, the name of this degree is likely to change. The students interested in making a career in clinical psychology need a minimum of master’s degree in clinical psychology. Given the growing mental health issues in our society, the demand for clinical psychologists is expected to rise.

Counselling Psychology

Counselling psychologists also provide therapy to help patients deal with their personal and interpersonal problems. Like clinical psychologist, they do not treat people suffering from major mental health issues. Instead, they deal with day-to-day issues such as solving fights between couples, helping students struggling with their course work, to assist professionals in dealing with the anxieties of job, and helping students with career guidance, etc. A counsellor works to makethe clientsmore functional and adjusted in their daily lives. Today, counselling is required across all occupations, and the need for it will continue to grow.Those pursuing counselling psychology can get training to provide different types of counselling. They can specialize as career counsellors, relationship/marital counsellors, guidance counsellors, and rehabilitation counsellors. Counsellors work in therapy centres, private set-ups, career centres, schools, NGOs and organizations.To become a counselling psychologist, students need to have a minimum a B.A (H) in Psychology along with a one-year diploma course in counselling.

Organizational/Industrial Psychology

Organizational/industrial psychologists apply the principles of psychology to tackle workplace issues. They work to make organizations and industries more efficient. They study workplace issues at the individual, group and organizational levels and develop modules to solve these issues. The students who specialize in organizational behaviour can work as human resource development specialists, organizational consultants, HR managers and training specialists, etc. Today organizations are investing a lot on evaluating emotional and social intelligence of their employees. Organizational and industrial psychologists have a good career prospects as they are equipped to help organizations train their employees on these new-age skills such as emotional intelligence and ability to work in teams. Students can get jobs after B.A (H) or M.A in psychology along with a diploma course in organizational psychology.

Child Psychology

The field of child psychology has a great potential in India because so far it has not got the required attention from parents as well as psychologists.  In the last few decades, childhood developmental disorders have tripled thus underlining the growing need for the services of child psychologists. Child psychologists deal with psychomotor, cognitive, emotional and social development of children and infants. They mostly work in child therapy centres, schools, and NGOs. Those trained to impart special education help the kids with special needs. For example, children with learning disabilities or autistic children or children with brain impairment can greatly become functional with use of psychological training and therapy.For becoming a child psychologist, you need a minimum of master’sdegree in child psychology or a master’s in special education.

Sports Psychology 

Psychology has become an important part of sports. Sportspersons’ performance is affected a great deal by their mental conditioning. A sports psychologist works to improve the mental conditioning of a sportsperson, particularly an athlete.  A sports psychologist studies the factors that can impact an athlete’s performance. These include cognitive, emotional, motivational and physiological factors. Sports psychologists generally work with sports coaching centres, sports teams, sports academies and leagues.

Today winning sports events gives the winners and their managers or team managements instant fame and rich rewards. Therefore, team managements take the services of sports psychologists along with coaches and physical trainers to enhance the performance of their sportspersons.

Sports psychology is relatively new in India but is expected to grow at an exponential rate.For practicing as a sports psychologist, a master’s in sports psychology is required. The Sports Authority of India provides research fellowships for psychologists; to avail this student need a master’s in psychology and must qualify for national eligibility test (NET) qualification.

Forensic Psychology 

Forensic psychology is relatively new in India. It has application in legal and judicial systems, especially in the context of witness testimony and custody issues.Forensic psychologists try to understand the psychology of criminals and the intent behind crimes. They have an important role to decide thenature of sentencing for criminals. In conflicts between spouses where child custody is an issue, the role of forensic psychologists is very important. For becoming a forensic psychologist, you need a minimum of M.Phil. in Forensic Psychology (the name of this degree will change from M. Phil.). Also, with the expected improvement in the judicial system, forensic psychologists are expected to play an important role in legal policymaking.

This visit contains a lot of learning and exposure for the students. The focus was on the needs and fulfilment of people with disabilities and have an idea using realistic examples of how easy it is to make a comfortable setup for all with just a little bit of creativity and change.

Rorschach Inkblot Test

The Department of Psychology invited an expert Ms. Kanika Khandelwal (working as a SRF at AIIMS, Delhi) for workshop to teach the students about Rorschach Inkblot Test.

The aim of the workshop was to teach the students about Rorschach Inkblot test which is a projective psychological test in which subjects' perceptions of inkblots are recorded and then analysed using psychological interpretation, complex algorithms or both.

Let us reach out to the children. Let us do whatever we can to support their fight to rise above their pain and suffering -Nelson Mandela

A one day trip/visit was organized as a retreat program where 5 kind of therapies were covered -colour therapy, sound therapy, dance therapy, breathing, relaxation and yoga.


Rangmanch Farms leisure trip (Feb ‘23)

The students of psychology department recently visited the Rangmanch farms where they got to perform various activities like zip-line, pottery making, camel ride, water activities and much more. The day-out not only filled the students with immense enthusiasm but also helped them break through the monotony.

Rorschach workshop

The department of psychology organized a 3- day workshop by Ms.Kanika Khandelwal, an established clinical psychologist and senior research fellow at AIIMS, to get our budding psychologists oriented with the conduction of Rorschach Inkblot Test- a projective psychological test which is used popularly by psychologists to examine an individual’s personality characteristics and emotional functioning. It was a great learning experience and got the students acquainted with the application of the subject in clinical settings.

Poster Making- Competition

To inspire and encourage students to be creative, as well as to assist them in honing their abilities, the Department of Psychology conducted a "poster making activity” and students participated with enthusiasm and showed there talent on how Media impacts on Gaming Disorder, Body. Image Issue, Cybercrime, Stereotypes, Role in Destigmatization. And to see how much the Students created the idea of media portraying and how media literates is just as much fascinating after looking at their posters

From the idea of body shaming to the idea of gaming disorder to the stereotypes, shows how much understanding the students have of their surroundings. This competition was held to encourage students to present their talent and how beautifully they have showcase it on paper.


Psychphoria: The annual department fest

The Department of Psychology organized its departmental fest “Psychphoria” on 5th December ’22 which is hugely popular in the institute. It was accompanied by a speech competition, 'Psychtalk' and an art competition, 'Psyhcart'. The topic for both of them was “how can we make this world a better place to live in”

Awareness Walk

The Department of Psychology collaborated with The PsyK- Life, and celebrated the World

Mental Health Month, by volunteering for the Mental Health Awareness Walk and came together to bust myths, and become the voice for change, raise awareness among the youth, advocate therapy and spread positivity.


During the activity students were first asked to form a team and then they were given a task. It was a rather interesting Task in which they were asked to create something from newspapers. Each team was given two newspapers. The condition being whatever they made should be out of the box and should be able to stand on its own. In all there were 5 teams. All the teams and their members did their best at both individual and group level.

This showed how effectively and efficiently each member coordinated and contributed in the completion of task. Their efforts at both individual and group level shows no matter how big the task is strength of the team is each individual member and strength of each member is the team.

To conclude it the activity taught us how to work effectively and efficiently in a team. It also taught us to respect and trust our team members to help achieve the goals. This team building exercise guided us to acknowledge the importance of team building and team work.

Hence, we can all agree to the fact together everyone achieves more.


One of the greatest events held in JCC, the annual event of psychology department Psychphoria played a crucial role in bringing out the best in the students.

They had an immense opportunity to showcase their talent by acting up as a medium between the spectators and an overrated issue "Generation Gap". 

Generation Gap, a self explanatory term i.e. differences in actions, beliefs and tastes of members of younger generations versus the older ones. When we bring this topic to the table, a debate is very likely to tag along. Even though, some people might believe that this issue has a presence between them and their peer group too, every person once in a lifetime feels generation gap amongst the older generations of their family. People often confuse "generation gap" with the term "misunderstanding" and it becomes a tough job to be able to acknowledge the difference between the two terms.

In the skit competition, Psychphoria, the participants turned out to be consummate as they brought out the transparency in various matters, from breaking simple stereotypes to a topic as complex as homeosexuality. Belonging from a young generation, they not only presented their views but dished out the standpoint of the older generations as well.

Freshers 2021

When students join college, the first thing that comes to our mind is the Freshers Party. The batch of 2021 was lucky enough to get this once in a lifetime experience. The whole department including students left no stone unturned to make it the best. Four days before the fresher’s party, the auditions for the title of Mr. and Miss Freshers were announced. All of us were on cloud 9, excitedly discussing about our attire, hairstyle, our overall look for the event and how we would present ourselves in front of the judges. The event started with a huge opening, with well managed programmes, a big stage with rounds of Photo sessions and selfies of us, well dressed. As everyone was beaming in an unparalleled aura and excitement was at peak, it didn't take much for us to settle in that ambience.

The selected boys and girls for Mr. and Miss freshers were given different tasks, who showcased their hidden talents which ranged from Stand-up comedy to singing performances and after much cheering we got our Mr. and Miss freshers. It was quite astonishing to realise that we have some gems studying in our batch. 

Delicious Lunch was served along with these. It ended with a grand DJ, where we danced like there was no tomorrow.

It was a really memorable day. We enjoyed to the fullest, got to know about each other, interacted with our lovely seniors and that's the best part.

Trade Fair

JCC has organised a trip to trade fair for students assisted with teachers. It's a great place to venture  with friends and family. Many traders come from around india even some across the world to offer and present what their country has speciality in.

Every year the trade fair has a main attraction, this time it was the hunar haat, where people from all over India came to showcase their talent and put up stalls. There was also a section dedicated to the start ups for the youth and new generation ideas to come in front of the world.

The state's showcase was smaller this year in comparison but beautiful neither less. It showcased beautifully about the states of India. The union territories were the show stealer for me, the way they presented all the states in such a way and with limited space available was a new concept we got to see.

The handicraft stalls were way more eye-catching than anything in the whole fair, the wooden items, the craftsmanship of those items showed the dedication put in them to be made. The turkish lamps were one of them. The beautiful coloured lights would make any room, any balcony look way more aesthetic and cool and would help set the mood in whatever sense the mood is being set into. Overall the experience was wholesome and enriching for students.

Best out of Waste

The students of first year participated in this online classroom activity pertaining to the Environmental Studies subject. They were to create useful products out of waste material available at home. They participated with great enthusiasm and carved out many amazing and useful things like table lamp, wall hanging, mobile stands, decorative show pieces, table coasters etc out of the waste stuff. Students were judged in the end on the basis of their creativity , usefulness of their product and presentation. The three best products were ranked and students were given the certificates.

Mindfullness Intervention

Mindfulness Intervention

To enhance the mental health of our students a guided mindfulness intervention was conducted in psychology dept. It was started with the breathing exercise as a warm up to prepare them for further activity. Following the breathing exercise Progressive muscle relaxation (PMR) was being conducted. In this activity they had to carefully focus on their body muscles starting from toes to head. At the end an individual feedback session was done to map the effectiveness of the intervention. Overall, the intervention turned out to be effective for the students.

Movies Screening

Learning through cinema stimulates learner reflection. The concepts are easily related to feelings and emotions through movies and the story telling definitely sets up the foundation of sound and retainable knowledge. Thus, movie screening is an integral part of the course. Movies related to mental health including A beautiful mind, Peaceful warrior, Room, Unbroken, Inside out among many others are shown to students to understand various mental conditions better.

Raise Awareness

The students were sent to classrooms of various other courses where they gave presentations in groups to spread awareness on the issues related to mental health. They talked about the most common problems like stress, depression and anxiety and discussed the common symptoms along with the strategies to deal with them. Each group of students was accompanied by a teacher. The students even answered questions raised by the audience on the issue

Observational Learning

To better understand a subject like Educational Psychology the students were given an assignment under which they sat in different classrooms to observe various teaching strategies adopted by teachers for effective learning by students. The students observed the overall environment in the class and the teacher’s role in it, they observed the teaching style and the students’ involvement level among various other things. Later these observations were discussed by everyone in the class.

Article Reading and Interpretation

The best way to enhance knowledge is through reading. The students are motivated to read books related to different subjects. They are regularly taken to the library to read articles related to mental health from various magazines, they are then asked to interpret the articles in their own words. The same is discussed in the class with other students for collective knowledge enhancement.
