In Psychology, our curriculum intent is:
For students to gain a deep understanding of research methods to be able to design, conduct and evaluate psychological research into a wide and complex range of behaviours.
For students to develop critical and analytical thinking skills.
For students to develop a thorough understanding of how the body and mind interact to affect human behaviour.
For students to become reflective of their own and others behaviour and how to interact with and support those affected by issues studied in psychology.
