Hello Psychology Aspirant.
Its good to hear that you want to do your further studies in Psychology. The field of Psychology is broad. A career in psychology means you will be studying the human mind,feelings,human behavior,how the mind functions and alternative methods of mental health care. A psychologists play an investigative role for their clients thoughts and feelings in order to provide therapy or methods to help them deal with mental health issues. To become psychologist it depends on the specific field of psychology you would like to study and specialize in. The sub fields of psychology include Clinical Psychology,Neuropsychology,Abnormal Psychology,Research Psychology,Social Psychology,Industrial Psychology ,child psychology and a vast array of other options.
To choose best psychology program for your start you should know your field of interest and than you can take the course as per your interest.
To get your masters in psychology you must have completed your graduation from any stream. So in your case definitely you can take an admission for MA psychology.But if you are looking out for Honours in Psychology than you have to go with BA Honours in Psychology(which will be a time consuming) otherwise you have an option to get admitted for MA Psychology. Taking Honours wont create a great difference. So its upto you whether want to go for BA or MA.
You also have other option of distance learning through various universities like IGNOU. Here you can complete your BA psychology General or BA Psychology Major(Industrial,Neuropsychology etc.). In IGNOU you can complete your psychology course parallel to your Masters degree.For IGNOU course details visit :www.ignou.ac.in

Your BBA graduation will go waste if you do Psychology.
Are you sure you wish to change to an altogether different field? Did anybody tell you to do this course or did you get some wrong information about the careers in psychology?
To be best sure of what suits you for your career, I would suggest you to undergo an online psychometric career assessment test from CareerGuide which will help you understand yourself in respect of your strengths, weaknesses, emotional quotient, etc. and will exactly tell you which stream is good for you.

Thanks for posing your query. With you question, I am not clear about your career objective behind doing graduation or other courses in psychology after doing BBA. Your query does not explain why are you doing BBA and what your career goal. Your question is whether you can do psychology honors after doing BBA. My answer is YES. You can do graduation in psychology after doing BBA. One of the career counselor has provided you the list of Universities/college where you can do the course. You can do distance course in psychology also.
To answer your query appropriately, I use two assumptions, (1) you want to do graduation in psychology to enhance your professional portfolio, (2) you want to pursue psychology because you like psychology.(1) if your intention is to enhance professional portfolio, then you can pursue masters in industrial psychology or masters in business administration (MBA) or Masters in Human Resource Management(MHRM) or Masters in Industrial Relations and Personnel Management(IRPM). After masters, you can do PG diploma IRPM, HRM, Finance etc. PG diploma can enhance your knowledge and skill for secifuc domain.
(2) if psychology is your passion then you can take up masters in industrial psychology or counseling psychology. After masters you can pursue Mphil or PhD.
Before you decide to do graduate course in psychology after BBA, give a second thought. Double graduation won't bring more job opportunities. Based on your interest and aptitude, chose appropriate course for masters. Post graduation ( masters course) will enhance your qualification, skills and aptitude.
If you have more queries, feel free to write to me or talk to me. I would be happy to answer or query or talk with you over phone.
