    A Level Psychology


If you have an enquiring mind, a good sense of humour and enjoy reading and debating then this is the subject for you. The study of Psychology will enable you to gain fascinating insights into human and animal behaviour. Students will study behaviour from a variety of different theoretical perspectives. Psychologists use scientific methods, but their main subject matter is human beings, so Psychology is a subject that links the Humanities and Sciences. Students will design, conduct and report on their own experimental research investigations. 

A wide range of teaching and learning activities are utilised to study interesting topics such as attraction, celebrity stalking, brain damage and recovery, phobias, aggression and the media.

Entry Requirements

Students should have a GCSE grade 5 in Maths or Science, and a GCSE grade 6 in English or a Humanities subject.
