Psychology at Meden School

Course description

In the AS course, students will be introduced to key areas of psychology, including how memory works, child psychology and their applicability to everyday life. Students are given an overview of mental health disorders and strengths and weaknesses of different forms of treatment. There is an emphasis on How Science Works which is taught through methods and techniques that psychologists use to conduct research.

At A2, students will learn about mental health disorders such as schizophrenia, as well as learning the psychology of eating and sleeping, as well as associated disorders in these areas. Students will also be required to conduct their own research in order to apply their knowledge of research methods that was learnt at AS, as this will be examined in greater depth at A2.
