Psychology

A Level Psychology

Psychology is concerned with understanding many different aspects of people. Specifically, it can be defined as ‘the scientific study of mind and behaviour’. The various different areas of psychology have been, and continue to be, investigated by scientific research methods. The results of which then lead to theories and models, which are used as a basis for continued research. A-level psychology will look at some of these key areas along with the important and influential researchers and their findings. The course will cover the following topics – research methods, approaches, biopsychology, psychopathology, social influence, memory, attachments, issues and debates, cognition and development, schizophrenia and forensic psychology. The course is 100% exam based.
