Psychology

Intent

Psychology is the fascinating scientific study of behaviour. Whilst studying Psychology you will study how people interact, how we change and develop, how we think, how the nervous system works, how we differ from animals and how we decide what is normal. You will develop your ability to think critically and analytically, further develop both your oral skills and your ability to plan statistically viable experiments. 

The subject combines particularly well with other sciences and social sciences. It develops a similar set of important transferrable skills including critical analysis and research design. Psychology is not a ‘soft’ option, but a highly theoretical, scientific discipline and requires more advanced studying skills than those required for GCSE. However, students who choose this subject will be rewarded with a fascinating insight into behaviour.
