    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    I took this course because I took Honors Psych in high school, but wanted a little refresher before moving on to higher level classes. It was a great way to do just that, and though it was an 8am, Professor Fyfe was so fun and interactive in class that it wasn't bad at all. The class itself was interesting, but Prof. Fyfe was what really made the class. The material wasn't difficult and Prof. Fyfe was always more than willing to meet, even outside her office hours, to clear up any confusion.

    Course highlights:

    This is basically a repeat of high school psychology, a broad overview of many aspects of psychology. We briefly touched on the history of psychology and its origins, then moved into the nervous system a bit. We discussed regions of the brain and talked about the senses. After that, we went through different aspects of clinical and social psychology.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Going to class is a good idea, there are random participation grades you get that you can only earn by being in class. Go through the study guide she gives you, it's an easy way to get an A on exams. Don't be afraid to ask questions.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    This is a great course, but probably only for Psychology Majors. It takes an interesting perspective for an intro psychology course, but it is fairly rigorous. There are only 3 papers worth 20 points each and 6 exams that are 40 points each. If you do not test well, be careful about this course, because 240 of the 300 total points are based on tests.

    Course highlights:

    The focus of the course is to introduce students to the history of psychology and how it has evolved. It also focuses on the different theories from diverse psychological groups and how accurate each theory is now.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    A really important factor that helped me to succeed in this course was having a study group. I usually do not study well in groups, however, when people had questions, answering help cement the knowledge and asking questions myself was just as helpful.
