Disclaimer: TNU reserves the right for relaxation in admission criteria for the most deserving candidates.

The course attempts to nurture action oriented thinking. The students will be groomed to meet challenges in all domains of life. The aim of the course is to inculcate in students the spirit of autonomy, empathy, sensitivity and creativity; the ability to think freely without being bounded by structures and hegemonies. The students will be trained to be productive, independent thinkers and activists, who are ready to bring about positive changes in the society. To inculcate in them respect for fellow human beings and for individual differences. The uniqueness of the course is its focus on experiential learning, hands-on training and team working.

The pedagogical approach focuses more on application based, experience based and field based learning, emphasizing assimilation of the perspectives that emerge from engaging, not restricting the same to text book based learning. The pedagogy is trans-disciplinary in nature where the student will be motivated to push the boundaries of Psychology as we know it today. Students will also learn to integrate diverse viewpoints. The programme will ensure three summer trainings and internship in hospitals, NGOs, corporate houses and schools.  These training will make students ready to works after post-graduation in industry, hospital or community. TNU curriculum is holistic and provides opportunities to go out into the world as a work life coach, a harbinger of wellness and good health, as a mentor for a sportsperson or an interventionist and will be able to serve in hospitals, NGO’s Corporate Houses, Schools etc. Thus the course is highly job-oriented.

Further, the comprehensive Masters program will provide the student not just an M. Sc. degree, that is recognised all over the country, but also equip them to carry out research in a wide variety of fields ranging from clinical psychology, social psychology, industrial psychology, sports psychology, health psychology, developmental psychology, education psychology, psycho-diagnostic & interventions, work-life coaching, psychology of wellbeing, human resource development, management studies and counselling.

Note that TNU follows a Choice Based Credit System (CBCS) and students are expected to earn about 20% credit from course those are not directly related to psychology discipline.
