Psychology at KAA aims to develop student’s knowledge and understanding of the human mind and its functions. Students at KAA enjoy a wide range of topics from scientific research, to how we process data and how mental illnesses can affect these cognitions. Students explore a wide range of topics and learn to apply these explanations within real examples. Students are taught to use subject specific knowledge to construct well informed and balanced arguments with logical chains of reasoning. Students engage with a plethora of shorter answer questions demonstrating understanding and mathematical skill, alongside logically constructed extended answers.
