Krishnan, known for his work in the field of Indian Psychology, led the department for a long time to its present glory. The Department was offering M.A. Degree in Psychology till the year 1998. Since most of the syllabi have now been revised in line with the tenets of science with a greater emphasis on practicum, the degree offered since 1998 is M.Sc. in Psychology.
