Psychology lessons are taught as part of the Humanities curriculum which is housed in its own wing of the Academy. Psychology is a popular subject choice at Year 12 and many students are interested in pursuing further education opportunities in this discipline. Students have 7 lessons per fortnight in which they learn about Psychological Approaches and their application to gender, aggression and consumer behaviour as well as Research Methods. In Year 13 students study Health Psychology and an optional unit which is Psychopathology. Both Research Methods and Psychopathology are internally assessed.
