Psychology AS & A Level at Ashlyns School

Course description

Why is it that some people suffer from stress and mental illness? Why do we remember things? Why do some people fear snakes yet a few think they are cuddly?

Psychology is the science of human behaviour and experience; it aims to study objectively the human mind and behaviour through conducting research. It also has real world applications to issues in everyday life, ranging from things like artificial intelligence to social change. We explore key psychological theories, develop your skills of analysis and interpretation of research, and explore the ethical issues involved in conducting Psychology experiments.

Entry requirements
