    | No strong feelings either way.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    It is a group learning oriented class. It is important to make sure your group members do their part in the assignment because group assignments were worth more than individual assignments.

    Course highlights:

    You get to know your group members very well since many assignments are done in groups.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    Make sure to keep an open mind.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I have tried to understand and pass this course several times, and finally found it interesting with Professor Vonnahme. He lets you apply the theories and principles based on real world applications. Some of the papers you have to write involve analyzing scientific studies (several to choose from) while others involve movie analysis (several to choose from).

    Course highlights:

    I learned the world of psychology is vast, however he does a good job of narrowing down what subjects are important to pull from the chapters. It scared me at first that the whole semester was riding on maybe 5 grades, but in the end that inspired me to try harder on those papers answering questions from the list he provided.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    This class is not terribly hard, and for this semester there were maybe 5 assignments. All were asking for different criteria to be met within the body of the paper, such as what topics in the textbook to compare to the articles he chose for review. Papers ranged from 3-10 pages, with 5-20 questions to answer within the body of the paper. You can get by with not studying for a week, but you should make sure you cover EVERY topic in the list he gives you for each paper. Put some effort into it and passing the class is not hard. The end of semester paper was 10 pages and replaced a final exam. It is doable, but like the rest of the papers, is definitely not something you should leave until the night before. Psychology is definitely not my forte, but I passed with an A.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I recommend this class because Ms. Madson was almost non-traditional in her teaching. Despite lecturing, she was rather engaging and had a good sense of humor which kept the class interested and engaged. Her in class activities were rather fun as well but at the same time, educational as they follow along with her book.

    Course highlights:

    The general theme of the course was "What makes us happy?" and not only did I learn quite a bit about the basic foundations to an overall human's well-being but it was rather introspective. Some of her activities taught me what makes me happy as well. At the same time, you really do learn about how the brain and memory interact and how it affects you as a person and those around you.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    You need to be on top of the work and willing to put time and effort into your reading so you can thoroughly complete your projects and so you can help your team in answering the team-quizzes at the beginning of class after each chapter.
