Psychology - A Level at Bourne Academy
The word psychology is derived from two Greek words; psyche (mind, soul or spirit) and logos (study), which put together gives ‘Study for the mind’. Psychology is a very popular subject at A Level as it gives us explanations for why we think, feel and behave in the way that we do. Psychology is interested in explaining individual behaviour such as what makes you different and similar to other individuals and how we interact with others.
If you are interested in research, like to be challenged, involved in discussing issues and can draw together, often conflicting information into written or verbal reports, then you may well be interested in Psychology as a course.
Psychology would be beneficial for university degrees in Psychology, Social Sciences and vocational courses such as teaching, speech therapy, nursing social work etc. Psychology would also be useful in such areas as careers/degree courses in business studies and management science, particularly personnel work, industrial relations, advertising, marketing and tourism.
