Psychology

Psychology at NGHS allows students to engage in the science of mental life and its scope includes a wide variety of issues. It addresses such questions as: why do we conform? What causes criminal behaviour? What predisposes two people to get on with each other and fall in love? What causes schizophrenia?

Psychology is a scientific discipline, involving the rigorous formulation and testing of ideas, and the evaluation and analysis of theories, explanations and experiments. It gives students the opportunity to gain knowledge of profound and ground breaking research, in addition to conducting their own psychological studies and investigations.
