    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    It was a good course to introduce the wide range of topics that psychology covers and the professor was certainly knowledgeable about the field and was fairly understanding when dealing with issues pertaining to individuals in the class, which was commendable considering this course is taught in a lecture with over 150 students. This professor was also tech savvy. To help keep track of everyone much of the work was online. This may be a pro or a con when turning in work depending on the individual but it was a also a forum to re-listen to previous lectures and review for the tests. It is a gen. ed. so of course it is hard to rate the course as being super fun or something to never recommend. You just have to take it for what is and if you keep up with going to class and take good notes it isn't something to stress about.

    Course highlights:

    The professor knew what she was talking about and could answer any questions a student had either during class, after, or through email. She was also tech savvy meaning she was not against using all of the features of the online website used for class to make learning and accessing information for the course easier. It is hard when the professor is stuck in the past. Through her openness it was easy to take in the topics covered in class and there were a lot of topics. Sometimes taking notes can be tiring but one can be sure class is never a waste of time.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Definitely go to class and keep with the work. Study what was covered by using your notes and the information posted by the professor and tests should not be too difficult for you.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I absolutely loved this class and professor Shapiro was amazing! She clearly loved what she taught, as she taught this subject with such passion. She was always thorough, helpful and organized with the way she prepped you for exam days. As long as you took the time to study, any one could pass this class. I would highly recommend taking any class you could with her.

    Course highlights:

    This psychology class taught you everything from the way the mind works with cognitive theories and reasoning, to different sleep habits and patterns to the way certain people behave and the intellectual testing to back up those scientific theories.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    I am a huge advocate of note/flash cards for some of this information. It's a lot of definitions and basic understanding of different scientists and their theories. I'd say I spent about 2-3 hours a week on this course, maybe a couple more when it came time for test week.
