    Re: What should I take after 12th in order to become a Clinical Psychologist?

    my friend,
    Psychology is the science of the mind or of mental states and processes. Clinical Psychology is the discipline in which one studies abnormal mental states, mental processes and mental behaviour. A Clinical Psychologist is a trained professional, who offers counseling services to people who are afflicted with abnormal mental states and show abnormal mental behaviour.

    To become a clinical psychologist, after 12 you have to do B.sc or BA with psychology, then go for M.sc or M.a in psychology. after completing your post graduation in Psychology, try for m.Phil in Clinical psychology. then you can fulfill your dream to be clinical pychologist.

    2 year m.Phil program in clinical psychology is offered by some institutions named-
    IHBAS, DELHI
    CIP, RANCHI
    NIMHANS, BANGLORE

    Hai

    To become a Clinical Psychologist initially you must complete BSc psychology .The Eligibility criterion for BSc psychology would be +2 passed of any stream. But preference will be given to science students with biology in some colleges.In master degree only you have MA/MSC/M.Phil Clinical Psychology...

    So successfully completing your UG degree in Basic Psychology you can continue with MA/MSC/M.Phil Clinical Psychology and become a renowned Clinical Psychologist.

    Dear friend.
    Psychology is a field that merge the human mind and behaviour to treat, diagnose and help the people suffering from mental disorders and disturbances.
    This field has a very good and wide scope.
    You can mainly pursue this stream through arts or science stream.

    In science stream you need to be a medical student with biology and have to go for MBBS and MD with psychology specialisation you like.
    There are many specialisation in psychology like sport psychology, school psychology, industrial psychology,etc.
    So you have to choose with which specialisation you want to go with.

    Since you are in arts stream there is just one option for you to go with psychology and that is BA psychology hons.
    This course is provided by many universities. Then after BA you can go for MA psychology.
    After MA you can go for research through the NET exam or other and carry on with your clinical psychology.

    ::Good Luck::

    Re: What should I take after 12th in order to become a Clinical Psychologist?

    A specialist in this stream basically needs to deal with mental behaviour and processes. You need to have interest to know how the human mind works. Since you have already decided on pursuing clinical psychology you must pursue BA in Psychology after 12th. After that you need to pursue masters in the same stream. You can specialise in clinical psychology then. You may need to appear for entrance exam based on the institute you plan to join. You can further specialise by taking a PH.d in the same. Some of the popular universities offering courses in this area are University of Delhi, Gurunanak Dev University, University of Calcutta and so on.

    Here are some of the top psychology colleges in the country:-

    Banaras Hindu University
    Madras University
    St. Xavier?s College
