Psychology A level at Carlton Academy
Psychology is the study of human behaviour and is therefore directly relevant to everyday life. It is also a very interesting subject as it focuses on why people behave as they do. For example, what causes anorexia, or why do we sleep, how do we measure intelligence and why are emotions useful?
The course content will differ slightly depending on whether you choose to study the AS standalone qualification or the full twoyear A level. Both AS and first year A Level students will study topics such as Social influence, Memory, Attachments, Psychopathology and Research Methods.
A - C in Science and an enthusiasm for learning about human behaviour would be a great asset.
Psychology provides a useful foundation for any job, as you will always be dealing with people, whatever career you follow. However, it is particularly valuable as a preparation for Teaching, Journalism, Drama, Social Work, Law, Medicine and Advertising.
