    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    Professor Phelps clearly outlines her expectations for her students and provides all lecture slides online, which makes it easy to keep up with the material being taught.

    Course highlights:

    I learned the basic parts of the brain and some basic mental disorders, providing a good basis for my later psych studies.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Read the book and pay attention in lecture!

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Prof. Schick is brilliant; she's engaging and so knowledgable. I learned so much from this class. She's also very helpful if you feel like you're struggling. Don't be afraid to ask her for help.

    Course highlights:

    As an applied psychology major, this class introduced me to aspects of psychology that I did not think I would learn about until much later in my college career which made the class a bit challenging but also intriguing. I learned about the neuroscience behind psychology (the composition of the human brain and the systems involved with processing information and making decisions). I learned about Freud and other important founders and contributors to the field of psychology. I also learned about mental disorders and memory encoding and what makes people attracted to other people. The material is very interesting and not too difficult once you get past the nitty-gritty biology that's required in the beginning of the course.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Do the readings! That's probably the more important advice I can give. Not only does she bring up the readings in her presentations, but she also bases some test questions on them so it's very important to do them. They're not that long either, so if you stay caught up from week 1, it's very doable. Also, come to class. It seems like a no brainer but in class she is really great about answering questions.

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    A great intro to psych course! The professor puts up the in-class slides before class. She also tells you exactly what's on the midterms and finals! You are required to do 7 hours of research and can get extra credit by doing 4 extra hours (the points go to your final).

    Course highlights:

    Professor Phelps sometimes does hands-on stuff (handing out x-rays and model skulls). She always takes time to answer questions, in class and after. Her head TA Lizzie was also really helpful!

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Read the textbook before the class- Phelps teaches fast! If you can't, prioritize the class over the readings. Do the research EARLY! They run out of slots at the end of the semester!!! Recitation is NOT mandatory (but there is where you get your tests and the TA can be a great help)
