    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    The course topics are fascinating. It is an in-depth look into the mind and it's abnormal functions in terms of disorders and compulsions.

    Course highlights:

    Learning about the different forms of depression and bipolar disorder. I enjoyed this because these terms are often used very incorrectly, and it was fascinating to learn the true clinical implications of these debilitating diseases.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    Read the book! It highlights key terms very well and breaks up the content into manageable sections.

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    Her lectures were always engaging and she was always responsive and open to questions during and outside of lecture. I liked that the course wasn't overly specific, like how some classes are a bit ridiculous with regard to how much irrelevant detail they expect you to remember; she wanted us to know important details and an overview. The course included lots of practical information students can apply if they know anyone with a mental illness as well. Overall highly recommend, even if you aren't a psychology major, if you are interested in abnormal psych you'll really enjoy Dr. Couture's course!

    Course highlights:

    This course included a wide array of psychological disorders and lots of relevant and interesting information for each (DSM criteria, symptoms, treatments, unique traits, efficacy of treatments, etc). Dr. Couture presents the material in engaging ways; she used a lot of video clips which I loved, included some from TV shows like Friends and the Big Bang Theory! We learned about disorders ranging from schizophrenia, depression, bipolar disorder, eating disorders, learning disabilities, dementia and Alzheimer's, and many more.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Read the chapter before class so you can participate and ask questions about anything you didn't know. Do her study guides because she makes them similar to the exams and don't hesitate to ask any questions about the material, she is happy to answer and wants you to succeed!

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    Really interesting course! Schwartz can be somewhat off-putting, but he is a brilliant professor and has a genuine passion for mental illness.

    Course highlights:

    The videos that are presented develop a better understanding of the mental illness that we are discussing.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    See him during his office hours - it will help you greatly throughout the course!
