 Since its inception in 2016, the Department of Psychology at Rajagiri College of Social Sciences (Autonomous) has been steadfast in its pursuit of excellence. Our vision is to be a center for mental health services and training for mental health professionals. We offer our students a rich blend of academic learning, research opportunities, and practical experience.

In the wake of COVID-19, the world is grappling with unprecedented changes across all aspects of life. The field of mental health is no exception. While some changes are apparent, many shifts in human behavior and mental health remain hidden. This underscores the urgent need for innovative research in psychology to unravel these emerging phenomena. To foster this, it is crucial to cultivate the research aptitude and curiosity of our students.

In light of this, we are excited to introduce the Junior Behavioural Scientist Research Presentation Competition for our undergraduate psychology students. We believe this initiative will inspire young researchers to conduct meaningful research that contributes to the advancement of the discipline and addresses the diverse needs of our community.

Our objectives for this competition are :

  1. Foster Critical Observation: Encourage young psychology researchers to critically observe and explore new issues and emerging phenomena in mental health.
  2. Promote Knowledge Sharing: Provide a forum for students to share and review their research findings.
  3. Showcase Research Skills: Serve as a platform for students to demonstrate their research skills in Psychology.

We look forward to seeing the innovative research that our young scholars will bring to the forefront through this competition. Together, we can contribute to the growth and understanding of mental health in these changing times.
