In Psychology we study human behaviour and what makes us do what we do in a variety of situations. Psychology is a sciencebased subject as we plan and conduct research like you do in science but we test people in an attempt to understand why we behave as we do.
In this course we cover six main topics:
Perception and Dreaming.
In order to be successful on this course you need to be genuinely interested in people and what makes them behave as they do. You also need to be logical and organised to plan research and analyse the data that you collect. Very importantly, you also need to be able to be honest about your own behaviour as we will discuss why you behave as you do in different situations.
What can I do afterwards?
Psychologists work in education, crime, mental health and many other areas The subject links well to nursing, teaching and management and many other professions as we all need to work alongside others and we need to know how to get the best from people aroundus and this subject helps withthis understanding of others.
