What makes you tick?
What shapes our personality?
What do our dreams mean?
How can we tell through body language if someone is attracted to us?
Why do we behave the way we do?

These are just a few of the questions that the National 5 Psychology course tries to tackle. Psychology is the study of the human mind and behaviours. The way we think, how we feel and how we interact with others are all influenced by Psychology. The course is designed to stimulate interest in the field of Psychology and to provide students with an understanding of the key domains. Topics studied include Sleep & Dreams, Conformity, Personality, Non-verbal Communication and Research methods.
