This is a two year course leading to the full A-Level. We intend to provide a broad introduction to the scope and nature of psychology as a science. The emphasis is on applying knowledge and understanding rather than just acquiring knowledge, thereby developing students’ transferable skills of analysis, evaluation and critical thinking.
The course aims to encourage students to develop their interest in, and enthusiasm for the subject, including developing an interest in further study and careers in psychology, whilst appreciate how society makes decisions about scientific issues and how sciences contribute to the success of the economy and society. They should also develop and demonstrate a deeper appreciation of the skill, knowledge and understanding of how science works and gain essential knowledge and understanding of different areas of the subject and how they relate to each other.
Studying A level Psychology will be of a considerable benefit for students wishing to pursue a career that involves working with people or children. e.g. teaching, health professions, psychology, counselling, business, in fact all walks of life and careers.
