Department of Psychology
The Department of Psychology was established in the year 1969. From a sole faculty member, the Department has now grown into one of the largest in college, comprising seventeen full time faculty members. The Department offers Psychology along with Economics, Sociology, Optional English, Communication Studies and Journalism, in varying combinations. This allows students to develop an innovative interdisciplinary approach, using Psychology as a pivot to appraise the world better. The Department also offers a research-intensive degree at the Master’s level since 2015.
The Department introduced the Honours program in Psychology in 2022, an advanced undergraduate program in Psychology which offers a more specialised understanding of the subject. The emphasis will continue to remain on cultivating a college-community interface, thereby extending the impulse of knowledge and culture of social conscientiousness.
Since its inception, the study of Consumer Behaviour is seen as a confluence of Behavioural Psychology and Behavioural Economics. It is now well established that consumer behaviour in the real world is not solely guided by economic variables and consumer choices in real life are influenced by various psychological factors and the emanating subjective biases. Both the disciplines have robust theoretical models to study consumer behaviour under the aegis of Behavioural Economics and Consumer Psychology. Behavioral Economics studies
how economic factors intersect with socio-cultural variables and impact consumers’ decision making process. Consumer psychologists investigate how the decision-making process, social persuasion and motivation influence the buying behaviour of consumers. This calls for multi-disciplinary research on the subject.
The aim of this conference is to enhance the understanding of Consumer Behaviour and offer a common intellectual platform to students and young scholars to examine various contours of Consumer Behaviour from the dual lens of Psychology and Economics. We welcome graduate and post-graduate students, young researchers, professionals from academia and industry to attend the conference and present their research work and ideas.
