Psychology KS4

Psychology is the scientific study of the mind and behaviour.

This course covers a wide range of topics, including :

• Memory, how our memory works, why we forget information and why our memory isn’t always reliable

• Psychological problems, exploring the causes of disorders such as depression and schizophrenia as well as the development of treatments

• Development, how our brain and thinking changes as we get older, as well as the changing role of education

• Criminal psychology, explanations for anti-social and criminal behaviour and what makes punishments effective.

This course is for students who have a genuine interest in why people think and behave the way that they do. You will need to be able to describe, apply, evaluate and articulate different ideas.
