    The class is fairly easy and as long as you show up you should get a passing grade.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend Intro to Psychology because Dr. Ladbury is a very good teacher. I took his Tuesday night class which went from 6-8:30. He provided a break about half way through the class. Even though this was a lecture he didn't just talk for the whole two and a half hours. He had us taking notes, having small discussion, watching videos that relate to the topic, have us vote on what we think of certain topics, and he'd even throw in an occasional joke. There was also study sessions once a week provide by the Teacher Assistants. Dr. Ladbury is a great resource and he is a very understanding teacher.

    Course highlights:

    Because this was an introduction course, we didn't go too in depth into topics. The topics covered in this course that I found to be the most interesting were: Gender and Sexuality, Memory, Stress and Health, and Psychological Disorders. Other topics covered are: Therapy, Personality, Learning, Motivation and Emotion, and Development through the Lifespan. Because the course doesn't go too in depth I learned a lot about how I can help myself. I learned a little bit about how my own mind works and how I can use my learning styles to help me learn more and some studying habits fitted to me.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Within the course you are required to do 16 credits (about 4 hours) in Psychology studies done by the Psychology Department. After those 16 credits, Dr. Ladbury offers 15 credits of extra credit... do them! Less than 4 hours of your time to get your grade boosted about 4% may not seem like a lot, but it definitely helps. I also advice taking the quizzes multiple times until you get 100%. Every week you are given a 10 question quiz on the current chapter. The quizzes are easy points and lots of times the questions on the quizzes are mimicked onto the tests. Dr. Ladbury keeps the top 10 quizzes at the end of the semester (100 points) and if you get 100% on all of the quizzes you are setting your grade up better.
