Psychology A Level at Monks' Dyke Tennyson College

Course description

Psychology is the study of the mind and human behaviour. It aims to examine reasons why people behave as they do and apply these reasons to areas such as crime, education and health. We follow the OCR board, which covers all five psychological perspectives: social; developmental; physiological; individual differences and cognitive. To be successful when studying Psychology, you must be able to think critically. This means reading material carefully and considering the issues presented within the text.
