The Vidya Bharati Psychology Department is regarded as one of the leading under graduate psychology department in the jurisdiction of Sant Gadge Baba Amravati University. It is established in year 1993. Since its inception the Department is rapidly progressing on various dimensions including teaching, learning, research and publications.
The Department consisted of two full time faculties and both of them are Ph. D. Intake capacity of the Department is 120 (40 per year). It has a well established laboratory with all necessary psychometric tests as well as equipments.
The Department provides a foundation for understanding the use of experimentation and systematic observation as a means of gathering and analyzing data about human behavior. Hence, apart from regular teaching emphasis is given on ICT, practicals and test administration. Every year certain programs on psychological testing are organized for college students. The department also extends consultancy services in the form of psychological testing and counseling. Students are encouraged for field visit. This experience allows the students to become familiar with various psychosocial problems.
Till date the faculties have published 20 papers at national and international journals and completed three projects including one major (Sponsored by ICSSR) and two minor (Sponsored by UGC). The Department is planning to annex advanced biofeedback and Rational Emotive Cognitive Behavior Therapy unit in near future.
