In India, the dearth of mental health professionals is a known concern that ironically goes hand-in-hand with the increasing number of citizens with mental health issues. One factor that contributes to this state of affairs is the lack of opportunities to gain a high quality education in the field of mental health. So as to contribute to bridging this gap, the Department of Psychology, St. Xavier’s College (Autonomous) has started a new Master’s degree course - M.A. Psychology: Lifespan

Counselling in June 2019. This course has been designed with the primary objective of creating competent mental health practitioners.

Number of seats: The intake is a maximum of 30 students per year.

Selection Process: Admission to the course is merit-based. Eligible students must fill in the online application form and then appear for the entrance examination held on campus. A merit score is then assigned to every student that is weighted as follows: Their marks in the third year of their Bachelor’s degree course (40%) + Their marks on the entrance examination (60%).

Fees: As sanctioned by the Board of Management of St. Xavier’s College (Autonomous), Mumbai: 

  • M.A. Part I: Rs. 1,05,000/- 
  • M.A. Part II:  Rs. 92,000/-
