    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    The class itself and subjects covered by the textbook were extremely interesting. However, the instructor had never taught the class before and I did not glean much from him. Assignments were designed by the instructor and ridiculously simple.

    Course highlights:

    I learned the basics of psychology and some information on its founders. Highlights included group work and Philip Zimbardo educational videos.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Just get the worksheets done, do not challenge the instructor's point of view, study for the quizzes and tests. Don't stress about this class. I took it in high school and got an A, try to do the same and get the credit.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    The professor really makes this class fun and interesting. There are plenty of opportunities to get your grades up and even if you miss a point on a test he gives you a chance to argue the points back. Going into the course, I thought it was going to be just like any other psychology class, but the professor really takes his Christian Psychologist work to the max and teaches it in a way that's understandable and relatable to the class.

    Course highlights:

    I've never learned about parts of the brain before in a psychology class. After taking this course, I know what just about every part of the brain is for and how they're used.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    In order to succeed in this course, you need to study. You cannot just slip by in this class. Reviewing all the key words in the textbook up to a few days before the test is highly recommended.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    While the course is a gen ed so everyone has to take it, it's actually very enjoyable and enlightening. It provides a nice, wide range of knowledge that is helpful to know in life, and the professor does a terrific job in explaining topics. Additionally, the professor covers exactly what's needed and gets down to the point. College life is busy, so professors who respect the value of your time are a total gift!

    Course highlights:

    I learned a lot of overall knowledge about psychology which has helped me in the next level psychology course I'm in now. This course gets you used to concepts and names like Skinner, Pavlov, and Vygotsky to get you prepared for future courses, or so you have a nice amount of knowledge for future interaction with these topics in the real world.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Memorize the key terms! I typically spent around 3 hours studying for the weekly tests, but if you study and take good notes in class, you will do just fine! You also can argue points on your test afterwards, so study up! Also, take advantage of all the extra credit opportunities...there are a LOT!
