Psychology AS/A Level at Haggerston School

Course description

Psychology is the study of the human mind and behaviour. This course will introduce students to the theories and methods in psychology. It offers the opportunity to look at some of the explanations psychologists give to understand humans and their interaction with the world in which we live. From a personal perspective students should find the fundamental questions of the psychologist of particular interest: Why do I behave like this? Why do I feel like this? Why do I think like this? These questions are explored through the analysis of research studies and theories, as well as practical work.
