Psychology

The purpose of psychology is to give us a completely different idea of the things we know best.”

Paul Valery

Like Biology, Chemistry, and Physics, Psychology is a scientific discipline but unlike the natural sciences, Psychologists are interested in understanding why people behave the way they do. It is one of the “social sciences” at Springwood.

The A Level course will enable you to develop a broad knowledge and understanding of some of the core issues and debates in Psychology, through a range of interesting topics such as Social Influence, Attachment, Psychopathology, Forensic Psychology, Gender and Memory.

Psychology will encourage you to develop a deep, empathetic understanding of human behavior, and a critical awareness of how and why we become the people we are. It is a diverse subject, and many students choose to specialize in a particular branch of Psychology after their A Level studies.
