    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This course was a great introduction to the huge field of psychology. Cardemil is fun and energetic, and even though it's a large lecture compared to others at Clark, the setting was personal and discussions were enlightening. If you think you're interested in psychology but aren't sure which concentration or focus you want to go with, this class will help you decide.

    Course highlights:

    This class gave brief overviews of all the branches of psychology. Developmental, Abnormal, Mood disorders, Behaviorism... Plus the history of psychology and modern developments in the field were discussed.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    It's a must-take for prospective psych majors, or even anyone just curious about the field.

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    This course is required to be a Psychology Major. So, if you are even slightly considering majoring in psychology take this course as soon as possible. Even if you decide not to later on, this course serves as a good overview of psychology. I found the course to be enjoyable and how the information is presented keeps students engaged and paying attention. In addition to the lecture there is a required discussion section. The discussion section is a small group of students (up to 25 but often less) that work with a TA to review the material taught in lectures and to also work on group projects to reinforce topics being discussed in the lecture.

    Course highlights:

    Its an intro course to psychology, so many different aspects of the subject are covered but not in depth. It starts off with a brief history of psychology and then touches on topics such as learning, memory, development, and the connection between biology and psychology (neuroscience). It is an interesting course where I did learn a bit more than in a previous general psychology course I have taken.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    I would have to say that reading the textbook/the assigned texts before the lecture is helpful. A lot of what is covered in the lecture would then be review but the professor does emphasize certain topics more or will add information not in the text. The exams mostly cover what is discussed in class but there were times where a few questions came straight from the text or referenced something in the text that was not mentioned in class.
