    STUDENT SATISFACTION RATINGS

    A NEW JOURNEY IN THE USA

    I wanted to follow my Psychologist father. I went to the same school, studied the same course, and apparently I acquired almost the same scores as his. Thus after completing 10+2, I wanted to acquire a Psychologist degree from Houghton College. I applied for the summer season intake and was accepted by the college.


    Course Curriculum - 

    The course is preparing me for a career in human services or for graduate study in psychological research, clinical or counseling psychology and more. The curriculum places a strong emphasis on research with primary sources, designing and conducting experiments, writing, and developing analytical skills.
