Established in 1967, Department of Psychology and Parapsychology is the only one of its kind in the country, having carved a niche for itself in the early years of its formation with a distinctive focus on study of Parapsychology and psychology of Sleep and Dreams. Founded by Prof.K.Ramakrishna Rao, the department was started when the proposal to establish composite department of Psychology and Parapsychology in Andhra University was accepted by the UGC. The initial years of research activity in the department were dominated by projects and doctoral work in the fields of Parapsychology and Psychology of Sleep and Dreams. Subsequently, in keeping with the demands of social relevance, the department has grown to specialize in areas such as industrial Psychology, Clinical and Counselling Psychology, Health Psychology, Women's Studies, Social Psychology in all of which doctoral research wok and projects have been undertaken.
