Psychology at Altwood CofE Secondary School

Course description

Psychology is the scientific study of behaviour and mental processes (the mind). In order to explain human behaviour better, psychology sets out to describe, explain, predict and when and where appropriate, change or control behavioural or thinking patterns. AS level Psychology provides an introduction to this very complex subject. The AS course is academically demanding and requires students to learn and critically evaluate 15 ‘Core Studies’ or classic pieces of research from five Approaches; also, students are required to design, undertake, write-up and evaluate four separate Investigations.
