    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    The professor was amazing but the course is naturally intense. Be prepared to write 10-20 page research papers. Also, be prepared for fun experiments and to people watch (always fun).

    Course highlights:

    I learned APA format like the back of my hand. I learned not to procrastinate because 15-page​ papers do not, in fact, write themselves. I also learned that designing experiments is pretty cool and you get to learn fun things about people you would have never observed otherwise.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Work hard, there are no shortcuts (trust me I looked). If you do the work you'll get great results. The hardest (and largest) aspect of this course is papers, don't mess them up. Talk to your professor and TA, get help! Don't wait for the grade and them ask because at that point it's too late.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This course would help us apply the basic knowledge of general and statistical Psychology through studying different researches and making your own at the end of the semester to apply all learnings that you have earned and developed through the semester.

    Course highlights:

    This course specifically engaged me to apply all the rules of the do's and don'ts in writing a research paper. I was also able to know more about the oldest studies in Psychology that I haven't heard of before.

    Hours per week:

    12+ hours

    Advice for students:

    Stay focus and curious. This course will challenge you to think out of the box which needs you to be creative and at the same time realistic. Some ideas may sound and look interesting, but make sure to think about the time that you have in order for you to finish and produce a good research paper.

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this class with Prof. Ralista Todorova. Best professor I've had in awhile and great with her students and teaching methods. Cares about students a lot.

    Course highlights:

    I learned how to do research and explain it though a research paper. Professor was very informative and helped you whenever you needed the help. Explained everything as clear as day.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Take the class with Professor Ralista. I don't know how the other professors are but the students didn't enjoy the class.
