AICE Psychology is designed to enable students to develop a greater knowledge and understanding of psychological research, think independently and make informed judgments on ethical issues, and apply their knowledge to novel situations and current debates. Students will be asked to analyze core studies with consideration for the following key concepts: nature versus nurture, ethics in psychological research, choice of psychological research methods, the idea that no single view in psychology is definitive, and the relevance of psychology in contemporary society. Students will explore a variety of approaches and core studies. Further course detail can be found in the course syllabus:https://www.cambridgeinternational.org/Images/634461-2024-2026-syllabus.pdf This course meets the criteria of Group 1: Mathematics and Sciences or Group 3: Arts and Humanities for students seeking a Cambridge International Diploma.
