Psychology is a fascinating subject to study and asks questions about individuals and groups that no other subject does. For example: What can be recognised as ‘normal’ and why? Can we survive if half of our brain is removed? What causes Schizophrenia, OCD and Depression and how are they treated? Is attachment important, and what are the effects if we do not get to form an attachment when we are young?

Psychology as a subject takes a scientific approach as it seeks to ‘study’ not just speculate about human behaviour and so psychological research will form an important part of the course. The course aims to develop students’ critical thinking, apply understanding to the real world and build skills that will be transferable to wide range of university courses and careers.
