The best courses in psychology are perhaps offered by the Departments of Humanities & Social Sciences of various IITs. However generally only Ph.D. level programs are offered by IITs. The minimum eligibility criteria for admission is at least 60% (SC/ST 55%) marks on the aggregate in the MA degree or equivalent. Having qualified the UGC/ NET or Junior Research Fellowship entitles the student to a fellowship and the student may be assigned as a Teaching Assistant for the HSS faculty.

Positive psychology is one of the popular topic in some universities. As the topic deals with the way people are spreading positive emotions. And also it has some deep research on how to feel good in stress times.

So basically this course has a lot of interesting syllabus. Also there is lot of opportunity for this from india and outside. Currently this topic is being taught in Yale and delhi university. You may find more information on this depending on where you wish to pursue the course.

I suggest taking coursera and harvard university and you can find some interesting courses on psychology. You can get credited too. Just have to sign up with the site and pay for the course track. They also weight your assignments and grade you at the end.
