Bachelor of Science Psychology (Hons)
Psychology is a branch of science that deals with the study of the mind. It encompasses various aspects that determine how people feel, think, and act, such as biological influences, environmental or contextual factors, and social pressures.
The Bachelor of Science, Psychology (Hons) programme at GCU, equips students to gain a deeper understanding of psychology to understand other people so that they can guide people and offer them an insight into their actions.
Since psychology is both an applied and academic field it has major implications on individuals, and also society as a whole. At GCU, students are taught to use objective, scientific methods, so that they can understand, explain, and even predict human behaviour to the best of their abilities.
Psychology’s primary application is in the field of mental health, where the graduates can use the knowledge acquired through the undergraduate programme at GCU to help their patients manage, or overcome the symptoms of psychological illness.
Other applications where psychologists can play an important role include developing educational programs, understanding child development, research, performance enhancement, ergonomics, and social program design.

Why I Chose GCU
Ms.Eva Chauhan (Alumni - 2019 Batch MSPS)
My experience in Garden City University has been amazing, apart from the fact that we could not enjoy the entire 2 years of college properly due to Covid, but other than that, the learning experience had been great in making amazing friends and to have wonderful professors. The faculty members have been extremely supportive and a helping hand in any situation. The all time support and motivation from everyone has been great throughout the college times.
Mr.Ramana C. V (Alumni - 2019 Batch MSPS)
To be honest I have been to Bangalore a couple of times during my schooling and PG. Since I enjoyed being in Bangalore I thought of pursuing my PG in Bangalore. I went to get my admission in a couple of colleges but I personally didn't like the ambience, but when I reached GCU it was legit bliss. The way they greeted us, I felt it very personal and touching. Then I got my admission and it was my first day of college, it was like paradise and each and every day of our college was a very memorable one. I've got friends who are gem of a kind. The best place which has multicultural people is GCU and I would definitely recommend students who are looking for the best experience with very good scope in future.
Ms.Somdatta Chakraborty (Alumni - 2019 Batch MSPS)
Garden City University has given me outstanding opportunities to broaden my horizon in the field of psychology. Our entire batch was very fortunate to have had a dynamic group of teachers and a well-structured curriculum. We were supported in every way possible during our course and beyond. The versatile teaching techniques and industrial based field visits helped us learn and implement our learning in the real world with utmost clarity. I’m forever grateful to be a part of GCU.
Ms.Annu Micheal ( Alumni - 2019 Batch MSPS)
My name is Annu Micheal and I have graduated with my Master’s degree in Psychology from Garden City University in 2021. Any field of education is more than just having theoretical knowledge and GCU has always been a platform to succeed with more practical oriented approach of learning. During my time in campus, we engaged in activities that provide hands on training experience like frequent industrial visits, seminars and conducting mental health awareness programs. The optimum guidance and encouragement from our professors helped me excel in studies and publish research papers. The professors would also make sure that all the students are involved and engaged in the topic that would be discussed in the class. I will forever be grateful for my time at Garden City University, the faculty and students I met there, and the skills I acquired there that have helped me get to where I am today.
