Psychology at Chellaston Academy

Course description

Psychology is the study/science of the mind,
behaviour and experience. In Psychology we try to
answer fundamental questions such as:
- To what extent does TV violence influence
aggressive behaviour?
- Why might eyewitness testimonies be
inaccurate?
- How can we try to reduce stress?
- How does a child’s gender identity develop?
- What causes schizophrenia?
- Which research method is best to use to
investigate any given behaviour?
Psychology underpins just about everything
we do, so it’s fascinating and demanding as an
AS/A-level subject. The aim is to go beyond the
popular approach to psychology, taking a more
academic route towards an understanding of
the various theoretical perspectives and the
different methods of studying behaviour, with the
opportunity of conducting your own research.
