The School of Human Ecology (SHE) uses the term ‘human ecology’ to refer to systemic approach in human behavior; human experience and everything in the environment that defines quality of life is human ecology. Therefore SHE has a broad, holistic view of the psycho-social adaptability of individuals, the relationships between individuals, their societies and the environment. The approach of SHE is interdisciplinary and applied, drawing from the fields of Psychology, Human Development and Family Studies, Sociology and Anthropology. The emphasis of the School is on education and training of human development professionals (counselling, psychotherapy and clinical work included), with a focus on developing skills for interventions for the well-being of individuals and families. Such education and training is addressed largely through the post-graduate programs, short-term programs, collaborations with NGOs, the Government and larger policy-making and program implementing bodies at the national and state levels, collaborations with universities abroad, extension and outreach activities, research and publications.

The Master's programs in Applied Psychology with specialization in Clinical & Counselling Practice attract students in good numbers (we receive about 1200 applications for about 50 seats). The M. Phil in Applied Psychology with Specialization in Counselling & Clinical Practice, introduced in 2017 is on the way to be established as a course of the SHE was offered in 2018 as well. The development of the School continued on all fronts, and in the year 2019, scholars for Direct Ph. D Program in Applied Psychology in Clinical & Counselling Practice were admitted. Short term programs in Couple and Family Therapy, Short Term Program in School Counselling; and Fostering Strengths: Working with Adolescents and Young People and Career Counselling have also made a mark and continue to attract students. Over the flagship program, the MA in Applied Psychology on completion of 10 years saw about 380 students graduate.
