    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course to any psychology or criminal justice major because it offers great insight regarding child development. This course can also complement anyone who loves children, or might be working in an environment that consist of children. In this class, I learned the different stages and structures that all children go through during their adolescent time frame. I also learned about the different psychologists who helped develop the many theories we have today; this includes Sigmund Freud, B.F Skinner, Jean Piaget, and many other great thinkers. This course also allowed me to apply what I learned in real-life practice. For example, for the final we had to oversee a small child. No younger than 3, but no older than 16. It was like conducting a real naturalistic, observational study. I could not talk with the child, or interfere, I could only watch and record what the child did for two hours. Afterwards, I typed an APA-formatted essay discussing the different theories and stages we had gone over in class. The class was overall informative, and gave me a feel of what life as a psychology would entail. I would highly recommend this course to anyone.

    Course highlights:

    The highlight of this course was being able to conduct an simulated experiment regarding a child. It was a naturalistic observation, so I could not talk or play with the child. Instead, I simply watched what the child did for two hours, and silently wrote down everything as fast as possible. Doing this allowed me to take the theories and stages and apply it to the child. Sometimes, we tend to forget the amount of hard work that goes into the research that many psychologists go through. We only really read about them and don't take into consideration the meticulous work that goes into their research. By conducting the experiment on my own, I was able to appreciate the hard work that many researchers and scientists go through on a daily basis.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    To any students interested in this course, I need to emphasize the amount of studying and focused that is required. Upon learning about the various psychologists and their theories, it can be easy to get them confused. When it comes to studying for this course, it is wise to find a way to remember what theory goes with what psychologist. You can do so by making abbreviations, mnemonic devices, flash cards, or writing down the psychologist with their theory 10 ten times. The latter may seem tedious but in the end, what ever you can do to learn and help you pass with great grades is always worth it. Good luck in all the courses you take in college.
