Psychology at Shaftesbury School

Course description

Do you find yourself wondering why people behave in the way they do? Then studying Psychology can provide some of the answers and probably raise many more questions. Psychology is the scientific study of the mind and behaviour. It is concerned with people - why they do things, how they think, how they develop, the theories which account for this and the methods of investigation. Topics at A-Level include Memory, Psychological Disorders (such as Schizophrenia), Obedience, Relationships and Aggression. As a ‘young’ science, studying Psychology means you will be working at the cutting-edge of recent discoveries and theories.
