Psychology A Level
Studying Psychology at South Devon College will introduce you to some of the ways in which the human mind and behaviour have been explained.
In the first year you will learn about the biological, cognitive, behaviourist, positive, and psychodynamic approaches in psychology, together with the various research methods that are used to investigate the brain and behaviour.
In the second year you will learn how some of the approaches have been used to understand addictive behaviours, criminality, and schizophrenia.
A degree in Psychology can lead to careers in clinical, educational, health, counselling and occupational pychology, or would be generally useful if you are planning on a career which is very people-focused, for example working as a police officer or social worker.
"I chose to study at University Centre South Devon because the set days for lectures meant it was easier for me to arrange childcare and continue to work whilst studying. The tutors are amazing, they help you gain the specialist knowledge and skills and the small class sizes have made a big difference to my learning."Victoria Howes
