Psychology AS/A2 at Notley High School and Braintree sixth form

Course description

This subject could be described as the scientific study of human behaviour and mental processes. Students will study behaviour from a variety of different theoretical perspectives. Psychologists use scientific methods, but their subject matter is human beings, so Psychology is a subject that links the Humanities and Sciences.

Students will examine key theories and research studies which exemplify biological, cognitive and learning perspectives in Psychology. They will design, conduct and report on their own experimental research investigation. Students following this course need to be open-minded and tolerant of ambiguity and to enjoy debating complex and sensitive issues.

Entry requirements

Students would be expected to have a good level of achievement in a range of GCSE courses including Science and Humanities subjects.
