Psychology A level at The Archbishop's School

Course description

Have you ever wondered why we behave the way we do? Why do we obey or disobey people? Why do we have phobias?  How do we learn? Are our phobias learnt or innate?  The Psychology course aims to address these questions, and more, to try and help us to understand the complexities of human behaviour.  We also aim to delve into some philosophical debates and question the nature of reality.
