Studying at JGU: To understand myself and the world around me

“When I reflect on my decision to join O.P. Jindal Global University (JGU) and how it continues to influence and shape me each passing day, I am happy and proud of my choice. It seems like yesterday, when I got my class 12th results and was browsing through the internet exploring study options when I came across an email from Jindal School of Psychology and Counselling (JSPC). The line ‘India’s first transdisciplinary psychology school’ struck a thought in my mind, what followed was a round of interviews, entrance exams, and interactions with faculty members. I still remember the day when I received my final offer letter from the university in June’ 2020, confirming that I am going to begin the most exciting part of my life in JGU.

However, this excitement also came with a bag full of anxiety, belonging to a family of engineers, my decision of pursuing psychology was taken as a surprise by many. I, on the other hand, was curious to know all about the school and what it offers me for the next three years. With this mixed feeling, I attended my first class as a student of B.A. (Hons.) Psychology, Jindal School of Psychology & Counselling (JSPC) and I have not lamented my decision to join Jindal School of Psychology and Counselling for a single second since then

Many of my school friends and family members ask me ‘Why I chose Psychology’ or question that I could have easily pursued engineering. My answer always remains the same ‘To understand more about individual behavior, mind and how human behavior impacts action’. The facilities provided by JSPC moulded me and taught me about many aspects of the human psyche that are hidden yet have an impression on us in a variety of ways, as well as the up-to-date and well-rounded coursework

In the last seven months, JSPC’s widening coverage has not only given me a better understanding of everyone, including myself, whether it be through the application of multiple theories or a better understanding of behaviour and possible causes, but it has also given me a purpose to look more deeply into the field of psychology.

According to me, JSPC has aided and provided me with the opportunity to work with a variety of people who have diverse ideas, allowing me to better understand their perspectives. JSPC is like a safe haven where everyone may express their opinions without fear of being condemned. I appreciate the learning process and the debates that take place in class about things that people try to avoid or avoid discussing.”
