    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course to anyone who has the slightest interest in how the human mind works, especially if you are not already required to take the course. From the first psychology lecture of the semester to the last class before the final exam, Professor Albright made absolutely sure that we learned as much about psychology as we could in less than 4 months. The chosen material was highly interesting and despite the fact that over 250 people were enrolled in the class, it was still highly interactive and discussion-based through in-class questions and weekly blog posts.

    Course highlights:

    In taking this class with Professor Albright, I learned so much exciting information in a fun way such that I was convinced declare a minor in psychology. I learned about the human brain, disorders, sleep, stress, people and many other amazing aspects of such a broad subject. The course really put my memorization skills to the test, being that there were so many definitions, rules, and studies that we had to understand. Additionally, I feel that my communicative writing skills were strengthened by the weekly blog posts we had to complete. Every student was required to answer a certain question (preferably in paragraph form) and respond to 2 students’ posts. However, the most fascinating part of the course to me was the research requirement and the particular path I chose to take. For my credits, I participated in a 5 hour long study conducted by graduate students at Baruch, and this day alone taught me more things than I could possibly imagine.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    In order to succeed, you have to read. Professor Albright is an eloquent speaker and gives thorough in-class notes, but the textbook is absolutely necessary to pass the class. Regularly studying the assigned chapters, whether in the physical book or the e-book, and taking quizzes online is what helped me get an exceptional grade in the course. Most importantly, study for the exams with a partner and test each other.

    Meditation Session. Learned A LOT about the different schools of psychology.

    If you do not have a background in the sciences, spend some time on a study guide for the exams.
