    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This intro to psychology course focuses on intriguing theories that you either never knew existed or never knew how they came to be as principles in the field. This class isn't just lectures, exams, and essays; you learn more about YOU! You have the ability to learn why people do what they do, and even why you do what you do.

    Course highlights:

    My favorite parts of the course were watching the Breakfast Club and studying the characters with the class and also writing a paper about our Myers-Briggs MBTI test to find out our personality type. In this class, I built the foundation of my psychology and social work knowledge. Learning about key figures in psychology and its history, groundbreaking theories, and getting introduced to the many subfields inside psychology were huge highlights during this course.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    To succeed in this course I suggest you browse, if not read, the assigned chapters in the textbook. By reading the textbook and hearing the lecture, you will get a well-rounded understanding of the material. Flash cards work great for vocabulary terms and theories or people!

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I took this course fall of 2015 with the wonderful Dr. Olaoye. I must say, this woman is one of the toughest, most intelligent professors I have ever encountered. She bases her class off of reading, dissecting, writing, analyzing, participating, and exams. I am not a test taker, but because of every other aspect in the class, I did extremely well and regurgitating for exams. I highly suggest that anyone who wants to challenge themselves and have an influential person for the start of your college career, look for Dr. Olaoye's name. Here's the link for her professional email, if you are interested in the classes she offers, reach out! https://www.brookdalecc.edu/contact/elaine-olaoye/

    Course highlights:

    My biggest take away was Sigmund Freud's iceberg theory. This theory explains how the human mind is made up of three parts: the ego, super ego, and identity. The ego is the part of the iceberg is showing, or the part of our minds that is showing. The super ego and identity are part of your subconscious, or the part of the iceberg that is not showing. The super ego is something you, yourself is aware of while the identity is your true self. Taking philosophy at the moment and reiterating Sigmund Freud's theory makes me think of Plato's theory of forms and realities. I highly suggest philosophy classes to any major, they will help in life as a whole. Truly all classes that have to do with human thought and minds connect to each other and college is truly a fascinating thing for that aspect.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    You must be passionate and you must take everything in and apply it to your life to be successful in any course. Courses do not make you successful, your adaptive mind will make you successful. Do not be discouraged by grades, you have to feel out every professor in order to succeed in their course. Like I stated before, it is up to your mind, willingness, and attitude that will make you succeed throughout your college career as well as life in general.
