Introduction


The University of Mumbai, Established in 1857, is a one of the prestigious, NAAC accredited universities in India. The Department of Applied Psychology of the University of Mumbai was established as early as 1959, about 45 years ago. This was at a time when the field of Psychology was just gaining ground in India and was in its infancy in Mumbai. Activities of the department have reflected a marked growth over the last four and half decades. Along with the rigorous training in theoretical and pure psychology at MA part I level, it provides highly applied training in four specializations. The four streams of study in applied psychology are,
clinical, counseling, industrial & social in M.A. part II. It is one of the universities in India to boast of training in these four streams of Psychology in a completely applied and practice-oriented manner. The department of Applied Psychology has designed its curricula to meet the challenges of our society. Subjects that help students to strengthen their knowledge in the fields of clinical, counseling, industrial and social psychology are included in the curricula. The thrust is to ensure that students master theoretical know-how and imbibe assessment and intervention skills.
