    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Even if you are not interested in psychology as a major, the course itself is fascinating and the information you learn in this course can help you to better understand the outside world.

    Course highlights:

    Some of the highlights of this course were definitely the Ted Talks and discussions. Ted talks are talks where scientists in all fields from all over the world come to talk about their experiences in said field. The talks are experience driven and they usually have a moral at the end of them.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    Definitely do it. Do not give up when it seems difficult to understand and try to apply it to real life meaning and connections and it becomes easier. Try to find a fascination in the topics and it becomes easier.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend it because you'll have quite a fun time reading about behavior and stages of development. Personally I enjoyed reading about the many types of personalities and what makes people act certain ways, for example nature vs nurture in behavior.

    Course highlights:

    From this course I gained a basic understanding of what the purpose of psychology is. One thing is that as psychologists and researchers, there are times where you don't have facts, but commonly accepted truths that have yet to be disproven. Gravity for example, we cannot prove it doesn't exist, so we accept it as it is. Also you gain a sense of what it is like to conduct your own research, it isn't as simple as you would think, getting an unbiased result and non-tainted one is difficult because of something as simple as the good subject tendency. (This is when you know what a surveyor wants to hear so you alter your response for positive feedback instead of how you truly feel on the matter, it can ruin the use and accuracy of a survey). Another cool thing is learning about the mental development stages and human behavior, but that gets really in-depth so I can't explain it for you, but I will tell you that you'll go over things like why babies get all wide-eyed when you play peek-a-boo with them.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    You would of course need to glance at your syllabus to see what you should have read, you tend to get lectured during class about things you should have read and discuss on them. And when it comes to it, it truly pays off to be capable of research and have some sort of questions to ask about the reading.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    For anyone wanting to understand more about themselves, society and how the brain works, should take this introductory psychology course. The material is engaging, and Professor Schafe provides material that is accessible to both students familiar and unfamiliar with the course.

    Course highlights:

    Among many things I learned in this course, the highlights were the topics that I found to be relatable to my everyday life. For example, I learned about the various ways in which our brain plays "tricks" on us, ranging from how we perceive different colors, sizes and emotions, which was part of the Perception and Consciousness chapter.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Since this is a dense course, with lots of information, I would recommend making an outline, or notes for the upcoming lecture the night before, and reviewing the basic points of the upcoming lecture, so that you are not at the lecture trying to scramble down everything that the professor says, and instead are broadening your base of understanding on the topic.
