    | Would recommend.

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    This course is great for lowerclassmen, especially those that have historically struggled with academics. The course provides helpful information about best practices for studying, as well as practical experience working on assignments. For upperclassmen, the course will be a breeze and pretty interesting in some places, but the assignments and tips won't do much good.

    Course highlights:

    The best part of the course was that you were forced to apply some of the principles to the coursework. There were also some very interesting sections about psychopathology.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Read the text, watch the videos, and do the optional activities provided. You don't have to do this, but it really, really will make the course easier for you. Have the writing activities checked over by a friend or the writing center.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    Lectures covered a lot of information. On top of that we had to teach ourselves more information for the online homework. Just because they were online didn't make them easy.

    Course highlights:

    I learned alot about the brain that stuck wit me

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Take good notes. Use his lectures and the online videos to study.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    Honesty, my high school psych professor made me hate Psychology, but Dr. Curtis made me love it again (and want to study more now). It's definitely not an easy A course, but Dr. Curtis' lectures make it fun and interesting. The only issues I can say that I had were with my TA regarding Blended Learning assignments (quick tip: email your assignments for extra assurance...it makes a difference between a B and an A). Dr. Curtis is very approachable, as I would visit him for office hours and he would clarify any unclear points addressed. Also, he gives a LOT of extra credit, so take advantage of it! All in all, I definitely would take it again. Awesome in every way.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights of the course were definitely the lectures. Dr. Curtis is very laid back, charismatic, and witty, yet very knowledgeable and knows his stuff. One of the unique features of the PSYC department is the extensive use of technology, so every class period (or during discussion sections) we have these "clicker questions" which involve everyone to answer polling questions. Afterwards, hilarity ensues and classmate reactions are priceless. If you take this class, just wait for his lecture on "Pluralistic Ignorance"; you'll definitely get a kick out of it! A rundown of the things I've learned? It starts here: Research methods, behaviorism, Drugs and the effects on the brain, Social psychology, and Psychopathology are just to name a few. The rest? You'll just have to take his class and find out!

    Hours per week:

    12+ hours

    Advice for students:

    The exams can be a real pain if you don't study for them. I recommend you form a study group, then go over the review questions located on the online PSYC website. Another tip: don't type your notes; instead, write them out because it takes more mental resources and will help you remember the material better. My next suggestion would be to do all of your Blended Learning Assignments ahead of time. Some of the TAs for this course are really strict when it comes to grammar for some reason. In this case, it's best to do it ahead of time and give it to them for feedback. After they give it back, make the necessary corrections and give it them AGAIN to ensure the safety of your grade(trust me, it's NOT easy). Lastly, take advantage of ALL of the extra credit that Dr. Curtis flings your way. This class is really a weed-out class in disguise for all future Psych Majors, so it's in your best interest to do so. Also, I recommend you go to the GSS(Guided Study Sessions) because it's evident that students who've attended these sessions earn higher grades on their exam scores. The coordinator for these sessions can help clear the air for any confusion you may have on a given topic. One last thing, go to Dr. Curtis' office hours sometime or speak to him after class in case you need him to clarify something that you don't understand (and make sure he remembers you). That's it from me. Good Luck!
