Psychology at Shrewsbury Sixth Form College

Course description

Psychology can be defined as the scientific study of human behaviour. During the course you will learn how to describe, predict and modify human behaviour. Psychology is a challenging subject. It requires not only skills of written communication, but also the ability to collect, analyse and evaluate data.

In Psychology lessons you can expect to engage in class debates, conduct practical’s and address a number very interesting questions, for example:

* Are criminals born or made?
* How and why memory disorders such as Alzheimer’s occur ?
* Do you think that our behaviour is shaped by the environment around us or is it a product of our biology?

Entry requirements

5 GCSEs at C grade or above including both English and Mathematics.

An interest in the scientific analysis of human behaviour is vital.
