    A good and unique career choice. Psychology is the study of behavior, mind and the state of conscious and unconscious. You will treat patients with emotional difficulties, psychological and behavioral problems. You need to do BA or BS Psychology and also you can proceed to masters. Often post graduation is required to pursue a career in psychology.

    Presently in India, the scenario for jobs in psychiatry is high in demand. Previously many people were shy to approach a psychiatrist but now this has changed and as a psychiatrist, you will have a great career ahead. There are different jobs within psychology which you can choose based on your interest. Some of them are:

    1. Clinical Psychology

    Lot of people (general public) confuse psychiatry and psychology, see a pyschiatrist first but move onto psychologist for regular support and counselling because lot of the related conditions need behaviour therapy and re-inforcement therapy.

    You have a good career ahead either as a practising psychologists, academician or a legal expert based on how your higher studies and interests are. Since youare still in 12th, if you get into a center like NIMHANS, in Bangalore is one of the premier institutes for M.Phil psychology, Neuropsychology. So, if choose a reputed insitute in the country (these are highly competetive with all India exam selection), you can get into a niche field as a consultant rather than just a general clinical psychologist/counsellor.

    Keep your options open, University of Delhi is one of the good places for you to join for B.Sc psychology, once you start your bachelor's have a short summer clinical placement in one of the top institutes in the country, it will give you an insight and a good chance to interact with current leading practitioners who can guide you what to specialize in and where to go for your post graduation.
    If you choose forensic psychology or criminal psychology, then you need think about studying overseas for a better career prospectus.

    In Delhi. Daulat Ram college offers admission to bachleors' degree in Psychology. (http://www.du.ac.in/du/index.php?page=cbcs-syllabus)

    The following colleges under Delhi University offer B.A in Psychology/Applied Psychology:-

    (a) Lady Sri Ram College for Women
    (b) Daulat Ram College
    (c) Gargi College
    (d) Kamla Nehru College
    (e) Zakir Husain College
    (f) Bhim Rao Ambedkar College

    Out of these six colleges, first four colleges are women's colleges. Lady Sri Ram College and Daulat Ram College maintain a very high standard and the cut-off percentages in these two colleges are very high. However, those students who do not have Psychology in X+II, will have to appear in Entrance tests.

    In addition, Jamia Millia Islamia, Jamia Nagar, New Delhi also offers Graduation in Psychology.

    I have not mentioned the names of the institutes (offeringUnder-Graduate courses in Psychology) outside Delhi.

    Beware! I question everything and everybody.
