Psychology is the scientific understanding of how people think. You will learn about how the mind affects the way that we think and act.

The study topics include:
• The brain and how it affects how we think
• Research carried out by Psychologists
• Theories about why we act as we do
• Normal and abnormal behaviour

You will be expected to:
• Work on your own
• Think for yourself
• Enjoy discussing new ideas

This is a good subject for anyone who is interested in how people think and how the mind works. It is popular for people who want jobs in research or to do with people; but it doesn’t commit you to any particular job as most careers use some psychology in their training.

You will need to be comfortable with numbers to enjoy Psychology.
