AS/A2 Level Psychology at Kingsmead School

Course description

Why should I study Psychology?

By studying Psychology you can gain valid scientific insights into many aspects of behaviour, from the effects of evolution through to the effect of others around you. In AS we look at basic approaches to the subject and look at famous studies in human behaviour. In A2 we consider the nature of human experience and the factors that influence it, forensic psychology, and some of the major issues in modern psychology such as cultural biases.

What skills can I gain from studying Psychology?

You gain knowledge of human behaviour, research skills, critical analysis skills, plus the skill of writing structured and logical scientific communications.

Entry requirements

National data shows that this course is suitable for students with an average GCSE points score of 42 or more.

Future opportunities

Students can access any careers or courses relating to human behaviour and Psychology forms a component of many training courses where people are the main focus (human relations, advertising, policing, medical careers etc.). For some universities Psychology counts as a science subject for entry, for others as a humanities subject.
