Psychology is the scientific study of the mind and behaviour. It has roots in both the natural and social sciences, leading to a variety of research designs and applications. It provides a unique approach to understanding modern society.
Psychology is a fascinating subject in its own right offering a broad insight into the workings of the mind as well as supporting a range of other subjects, such as English, Biology, History, Philosophy and Theory of Knowledge. In our teaching we draw on real-life examples and offer stimulating, interactive lessons.
Students learn to think critically at a number of levels, to write discursively and will develop their research skills. Students should have an enquiring mind, and an interest in behaviour.
