Types of Psychology


If you have read the what is psychology page, you'll know that there are multiple and often competing levels of explanation when it comes to understanding behavior.


The aim of this page, therefore, is to try and group different types of psychology into meaningful categories. This page will also act as a hub page for anybody looking for quality information on a particular branch of psychology, or topic area within psychology.


A Word About The Categories



All the different types of psychology listed on this page will be placed in one of three categories. These categories are designed to help people understand the context in which a particular psychology topic is likely to be encountered. As such, they should neither be seen as definitive, nor exhaustive.


Academic Psychology

This category covers the core, often compulsory topics within psychology that students traditionally study when doing a psychology course, degree or program. These are areas within psychology that can draw upon a broad range of related theory and research.



Please note that Psychology Research Methods (another core component of most psychology courses) has its own dedicated area on the website. There is also a page designed to help students studying any of the A Level psychology specifications.
