PROGRAMME CONTENTSTRUCTURE Psychology is the science of mind and behaviour how people think, behave and feel. It is a wide ranging and facinating subject which covers questions ranging from how our memory works to a consideration, e.g of why people develop racist views. Other topics included in the course are abnormal psychology, developmental psychology and physiological aspects of behaviour such as stress. Throughout the course there is an emphasis on a scientific approach to the study of human psychology which means that students will gain expertise in the use of the different research methods used by psychologists. The AS course is covered in one year and examined in two modules. A further two A2 modules make up the complete A Level. These will be taken from the new 2009 specifications and are likely to include the study of clinical conditions and the development of thought. The College offers a wide range of AS level subjects to choose from - so students can pick, with support from college staff, the combination that best suits their needs. Most students will start by taking between 3 - 4 AS levels before deciding which subjects to continue with in order to gain the full A level. The main things students should think about when deciding which subjects to take are their interests, what they are good at and what they might need for employment or progressing onto Higher Education in the future. Students on the ASA level programme are supported by a strong tutorial element including careers education and the development of their personal and study skills. AS or A2 subjects ( usually just one) may be taken by suitably qualified BTEC students, subject to timetabling constraints. PROGRESSIONCAREERS OPPORTUNITIES AS and A levels are a traditional route into University for 16-18 year olds. They are also seen by employers as indicators of a potential employee's intelligence, maturity and self organisation skills. Most A level students progress into full-time employment or onto Higher Education. Opportunities to study Higher Education (HE)qualifications at Croydon Higher Education College are available.
