Psychology is the study of human nature and this course investigates behaviour in many social and cultural settings, discussing interesting, challenging and sensitive current day issues. The course develops a range of skills applicable to a wide variety of careers in medicine, law, journalism, education, counselling, sport, business and industry. Psychology is also generally accepted as an ideal subject which combines excellently with all other A level courses, Science based or Arts based, due to the biological, research, and socio-cultural elements of the course. The course requires students to learn about new and exciting research conducted by psychologists in the following fields: Forensic, Clinical, Sport, Social and Educational research which has been conducted to help people with difficulties and to improve social conditions. Many employers favour students with a background in Psychology because of the standards of literacy, numeracy, analysis, problem solving and critical thinking which is acquired in the course.
