Mind FieldMDIS in the News

You are someone who revels in the company of people and is intrigued by the workings of the human mind, yet psychology is not on your radar as a career option. This is probably because the term psychology evokes a career of mind reading with nothing tangible attached to it. This misconception can largely be attributed to popular culture.

Thankfully, attitudes towards psychology have gone through a drastic change in the last 10 or more years, with it now being viewed as a behavioural science that is integral to every field worldwide. As a result, the scope for its application has grown multi-fold. For instance, those armed with a psychology degree have found careers as social service specialists, advertising agents, educators and career counsellors – far from being limited to the traditional role of a clinical psychologist.

“Psychology is the science of minds, and it’s about being able to get into the psyche of others with the objective of helping people,” explains Amir Singh, Senior Lecturer and Institute Counsellor at MDIS School of Psychology.

Singh has been key in moulding the school’s psychology department so that the students are better equipped to enter the workforce. To that end, the curriculum covers everything from business psychology to clinical and health psychology, along with psychology and social science research.

Using a fresh and holistic approach to the field of study, MDIS School of Psychology’s teaching methodology takes into consideration a wide span of applications. By placing intensive focus on collaborative learning, the institute helps students seamlessly bridge the gap between theoretical knowledge and practical application.

Singh shares that while gaining intrinsic knowledge of the fundamentals of psychology including political science, economics and philosophy, students will gain excellent analytical and communication skills, learn about social etiquette, and have the ability to think outside the box.

In short, a course at MDIS School of Psychology prepares you for life.
