Psychology at Overton Grange School

Course description

Human behaviour and the mind continue to fascinate and intrigue. For much of the course we will be addressing:

Can rely on our memories? What is normal behaviour? Why do we commit crimes? Why do we follow the crowd?
How do we learn?

Topics will range from memory and forgetting, abnormal behaviour, obedience, conformity, discrimination and Clinical Psychology.

If you feel excited by the challenge of tacking these and other issues right at the cutting edge of this new science, then Psychology is the course for you.
