Psychology is the study of the mind and behaviour. It can be taken at AS and A2 Level in the Beverley Joint 6th Form. The exam board is OCR.
The AS psychology course looks at 15 topics which demonstrate the breadth of psychology (asking questions like "What makes people obedient?" and "Do we dream every night?") Students are also required to develop an understanding of research methods and will conduct short practical investigations of their own.
The A2 Psychology course looks at two areas of psychology in detail. Students study Forensic psychology and Health and Clinical psychology. Students also build on their knowledge of research methods from the AS course.
