The field of Psychology has a long history of research which has resolved many puzzles of the complex human behavior. A visit to a Psychology laboratory having a rich tradition can give anyone an idea about the huge scope for experimentation and assessment of behavior. The field visit of MA Psychology students to the laboratory of the Department of Psychology of Savitribai Phule Pune University was organized. Students visited the department along with the staff member on 27th October, 2017.
The University staff Dr. Bhaskar Shejwal, Prof. Shilpa Salve and Prof. Bhupender Singh guided the students at the visit. Prof. Shejwal provided historical perspective of the SPPU's Department of Psychology which was established in 1950. The Department has a strong tradition in research and teaching.

The staff guided the students through the experimental laboratory and explained about the testing material. Students thoroughly enjoyed the experience. It was a learning experience for them that will be helpful in further curricular activities
