    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    It is my favorite class that I've taken since starting at Tech in the fall of 2015. The professor is very knowledgeable and is very willing to work with students. The only grades are from tests. I HIGHLY recommend you do the readings, as there is some information on the tests that is only given to you in the book. However, those topics (and their page numbers) are on the study guides. But the book is a good, interesting, easy-enough-to-read "read."

    Course highlights:

    I learned more than I can fit into this box. If I told you everything I learned, you wouldn't have the experience of learning it yourself. I will say, though, that conversion disorder is so incredibly intriguing. I'd never heard of it before, and it is AMAZING. Look it up right now, then read the next sentence. What that means is: the brain is receiving the information, but it isn't giving that information to you. It isn't giving your consciousness that information. That makes me wonder what the connection is between our brain and our consciousness, and how "superior" we really are to animals. We often feel like we're sleepwalking--because we are. We turn off our consciousness, and become just like animals (or at least the concept of animals we've created). They have alphas, we have political leaders. They supposedly are unaware of themselves and their existence, but how truly aware are we? How aware can we really be if things like conversion disorder exist, if we're able to sleepwalk through life, if we are able to act without thinking--perhaps we've overestimated our own awareness, and, in doing so, have become more like the concept of animals we've created than the idea of what it's actually like to be human.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    DO THE READING. GO TO CLASS. ASK QUESTIONS--inquiring is the only way to actually learn. Think for yourself, get curious, and don't be scared to ask questions. Even if you were wrong about what you were asking, at least you know that now. ASK QUESTIONS. I cannot say that enough.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This class is beyond fascinating. We learn about disorders of the mind, including Generalized Anxiety Disorder, OCD, PTSD, and so many others. I love learning about these disorders because they help me to understand the people around me. Knowing what triggers a person and what doesn't can help me to understand and comprehend why people act the way they do.

    Course highlights:

    Professor Valdespino is a wonderful instructor. His course is structured very well and there is no confusion on what will be coming next. This was the highlight of the course for me because having structure can help me to learn, as I do not have to worry about test dates, due dates, etc.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    TAKE COPIOUS NOTES. Valdespino is a lecturer and he will mention things that will be on the test as he speaks. Make sure to write these things down because they will help you in the long run.
