Psychology at Newmarket Academy

Course description

Psychology attempts to answer the fundamental question - 'Why do people behave the way they do?' Some psychologists approach this from a point of view of behaviour whilst others seek to scientifically study the mind. The course introduces a selection of major psychological theories and research. Contrasting theories will be critically discussed, analysed and evaluated giving insight into human behaviour and providing a range of perspectives through which it can be considered.

The course should equip you with the skills to appreciate the complexities of how individuals develop and interact with their environment. Such skills are applicable to psychological study e.g. clinical/educational psychology and caring, teaching and other areas dealing with people.
