Psychology

 

A level Psychology develops knowledge and understanding of human behaviour. Psychologists aim to investigate the causes of behaviour; Why do people commit crime? How do we develop our sense of gender? How do we develop OCD and can it be treated? Why do people abuse substances and how can substance abuse be prevented? The study of Psychology at A level enables students to develop their analytical and critical thinking skills. Although academically demanding, students will benefit from and enjoy the application of Psychology in real life situations, such as gender and phobias.
