The Department of Applied Psychology of the University of Mumbai was established as early as 1959, about 55 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. 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.
