Hello Swathi,

Welcome to careerguide.com. I am happy to see your interest in psychology and would definitely help you with information you need. But before that, I would first like to introduce PSYCHOLOGY in brief. Psychology is one of the behavioural sciences - a broad field that spans the cognitive, emotional , intellectual , social, interpersonal, biological etc. part of human being, a discipline that seeks to study thoughts, actions and behaviour of human beings. It is both academic and applied discipline involving the scientific study of mental process and human behaviour.

Now, coming to your query , the best colleges and institutes offering M.A. in Applied PSYCHOLOGY are as follows :

1) Amity Institute of Psychology and allied sciences, Noida, Uttar Pradesh.
2) Christ University, Bangalore.
3)Department of Applied Psychology, University of Mumbai.
4) Delhi University
5)Jamia Milia Islamia, New Delhi
6)NIMHANS, BANGALORE AND NIMH , HYDERABAD for higher research courses etc.

Next, regarding the scope of research and applied quarters of psychology, I should say that they are numerous. The areas apart from general psychology, where you can carry out research and see its real world application includes 1) Physiological psychology, Clinical psychology, Cognitive Psychology, 2) Counselling and guidance, Community Psychology, Developmental and educational Psychology, School psychology 3) Forensic and Health Psychology, Neuro psychology,4) Personality psychology , Social psychology, Organisational Psychology . The Research areas also involves application of psychological knowledge in development of therapies and techniques for soothing out and alleviating problems in family and clinical settings etc. Virtually , the applications and benefit are as many as one can think of and as long as human beings are.
At Last, I would like to ask you why you want to change or switch over to psychology ? Are you interested in making a career in research ? then why not in basic sciences in which you already have a background ? Of course, your background in basic sciences will help you in getting the subject easily and take it further, but , still you need to evaluate yourself , whether you have the requisite skills, personality traits, aptitude , passion , acumen etc, to further your career in this dynamic field ? You can also take help of assessment services / Career profiling offered by CareerGuide.com.com and make informed choices.Hope this answers your query...

Still have queries ? Feel free to revert .....

All the best......
