You Will Study

Psychology is the scientific study of behaviour and experience. Psychologists investigate both the behaviour and the mental process of the individual. The units studied are:

  • Research Methods - Planning, conducting, analysing and reporting psychological research across a range of experimental and non-experimental methodologies and techniques
  • Psychology Themes Through Core Studies - Introduces some of the central areas of investigation in psychology organised in key themes. Each key theme is represented by a classic and a contemporary core study.
  • Applied Psychology - Issues in mental health, criminal psychology and child psychology.

A crucial part of psychology is the need for active student participation. Psychology is an interactive, investigative subject which will require your contribution. There will be many opportunities for discussion during lessons. A wide variety of sources of information will be explored, including videos, newspaper and journal articles, and the Internet.
