Psychology A-Level at Landau Forte Sixth Form College

Course description

Look at the people around you; you will see differences in their behaviour, in their opinions, in their intelligence and in their personality. Psychology is the study of mind and behaviour and tries to explain everything we do. Psychology aims to make the world better by helping people be the best that they can be.

The aim of both AS and A Level Psychology is to introduce students to key studies, theories, issues and debates in Psychology, as well as raising awareness of how Psychology applies to everyday life. Students will also learn about the varied ways in which psychologists collect their data through carrying out a range of investigations, practical activities and research projects.
