Post Graduate Diploma in Counselling (PGDC)
This course aims to provide students with a solid conceptual foundation and thorough understanding of the discipline of Psychology. Courses are designed in a way that helps students to understand the basic nature, distribution and dynamics of Applied Psychology, at local, national and international level. It also helps in exploring contextual frame work of human behavior, philosophies, psychological issues and implementation of theories when it comes to the understanding of real world.
The unique practices we use to make students understand the subject are as following
Assignments: Students are made to write small assignments on current issues or topics every month, where they are free to select their topics. This exercise helps them analyze and understand the current issues in an interesting manner.
Presentations: The assignments are presented by students in class, followed by interactive sessions.
Debates: Every week a topic is given to the students and during activity slots on Friday, our students actively participate in these debates. This helps them gain the confidence and improves their public speaking powers.
Major-Minor: Students can opt any subject available at School of Humanities and Social Sciences as a Minor subject. It enables student to develop an interdisciplinary approach and opens up the avenues to go for further studies in any subject (major or minor).
Major Graduate Thesis: It is a piece of independent research in which research tools are used and all the parameters of good research are followed. It helps students to learn, explore the new things and gain insight about the world beyond books. They select their own topic, form hypothesis with the help of supervisor, create research objectives, visit field if required and then writes the report.
Use of documentary films: During activity slots we try to show them documentary films on various psychological and contemporary issues including gender etc.
Workshop: we organize workshop on regular basis to help our students understand the administration of psychological test in real life setting.
Projects: Major Graduate Thesis : Final year students are required to go through major graduate thesis where primary data collection is encouraged and original piece of research is entertained.
