Psychology is the study of people:
how they think, how they act, how they react and
interact. Psychology is concerned with all aspects
of behaviour and the thoughts, feelings and motivation
underlying our behaviour.
Psychology is one of the fastest
growing university subjects and is becoming more
and more available in schools and colleges. Media
interest is strong, and the subject and its applications
regularly find their way onto prime-time radio
Psychology can be studied
at school or college at GCSE, AS-level, A2 level, A
Level or Scottish Highers, or as SCOTVEC modules leading
A or AS-level psychology is not usually
required for entry to a degree course, but many students
may find is useful.
