Psychology

A Level

Psychology is the scientific study of the mind and human behaviour. Throughout the course we will try to understand what motivates, challenges or changes us and use this understanding to help us tackle personal and social problems. To do this we will discover a broad range of explanations and research into fascinating human behaviours such as prejudice, mental health and crime.

Studying Psychology can open your ways of thinking and change the way you interpret human behaviour. You will also, design, carry out and interpret the data from your own research.
