Psychology is the scientific study of human behaviour; why we think, feel and act the way we do, individually and in groups. You will learn about each of the approaches which explain the way your thoughts and feelings act and interact—what makes you, ‘you’.
You will gain an introduction to a broad range of topics in the field and also engage in lively debates about what is at the heart of human nature. If you have an interest in what makes us ‘tick’ and, a fascination with why people behave in the way they do, then this is the ideal subject for you.
Psychology A level can help you go on to many different degrees such as; psychology, nursing, childhood studies, sport and criminology. Career opportunities include; teaching and education, clinical psychologist, police work, sport, health services and social work.
