Welcome to Psychology
Psychology AS and A-level is taught with the assumption that students have no prior knowledge of the subject. Psychology the science of behaviour and experience; it is a cross between the human and natural sciences. Psychologists use human behaviour as a clue to the workings of the mind. Everything we do, think, feel and say is determined by the functioning of the mind. So psychologists take human behaviour as the raw data for testing their theories about how the mind works. Psychology has many links to other different disciplines, including biology, medicine, linguistics, philosophy, anthropology, sociology, and artificial intelligence (AI).
The Department team consists of the Head of Department, and two full time members of staff whom also have commitments in other departments as well. The department currently follows the AQA (A) specification at A Level. There are two dedicated Psychology classrooms and a Psychology office.
