Psychology at Finchley Catholic High School
Psychology is the study of the human mind and behaviour: a science which uses cutting edge research to give a better insight into everyday issues and current events, from obsession with body image to involvement in gang violence. As well as understanding key
research methods and psychological theories, we will study issues such as memory, stress, obedience to authority, OCD, gender differences and aggression.
If you enjoy studying human behaviour in different contexts, can apply a critical eye to different theories, and are comfortable sharing your opinions in group discussions, this course will suit you.
As well as good English skills, good numeracy is essential as you will analyse statistical data to evaluate the results and validity of different experiments.
Psychology is a useful foundation for a wide variety of degrees – from Social Studies to Law and Criminology, and careers – from social work to marketing.
