A Level Psychology

Psychology is a fascinating study of the brain and behaviour. The A Level course takes a scientific perspective when considering many aspects of human behaviour, such as social influence, attachment, memory, aggression, addiction and sleep. Atypical behaviour is also thoroughly explored through the study of psychopathology, which specifically considers explanations for and treatments of schizophrenia, phobias, depression and OCD. In the Upper Sixth, students will weigh up evidence for and against many of the great debates applicable to human nature; Do we have free will? Is our behaviour caused by nature or nurture?
