    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I loved this course! this course Aptly covered the basics of psychology and really got students excited for continuing their education in psychology! I loved how this course connected psychology with the human brain and the Anatomy part of how things work because you really have to know how things work befor you understand why. the only thing i wish i had know before going into the class is that she doesnt teach from her book very much its mostly power points and lecture notes so i probably could have gotten away without buying a book but other than that it was a very informative class that increased my drive for wanting to pursue an education in psychology.

    Course highlights:

    This course went over the basics of the human brain and the nervous system. Then we talked about some of the giants in psychology and some of thier work such as Freud, Pavlov, Erikson, Skinner, and Piaget. we talked about the similarities and differences in thier theories and how they built off eachother. we finished with a peak into Abnormal psychology learning about some of the major disorders that psychologists study and how it all connects.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    I would advise students to have an open mind and to stick with the course. the beginning doesn't seem very much like psychology but by the end you have covered quite a lot of information. Make sure to study hard because the test really do test how much you have been paying attention, they are not super easy.

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    Professor Whetten is awesome! He is very friendly and approachable. I went to his office hours and he wasn't intimidating at all. He makes the material very easy to understand, too. He teaches with power points, lecture, videos, in class examples with peers, and real world cases. He doesn't just stand in the front of the room and lecture. He makes the material interesting. I loved going to this class.

    Course highlights:

    I learned a lot in this course! He dedicated some time to talk about the famous cases in psychology (Genie, Pavlov's Dogs, The Standford experiment, etc). I found that super fascinating and cool, and I was glad he dedicated class time to talk about these because they were helpful in understanding psychology concepts.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Make sure you go to class and check the syllabus. He takes attendance with iclickers and the quizzes are in-class iclicker quizzes. He always adds a little extra notes to the power points so make sure you go to lecture so you get the full scope of information. He doesn't change due dates too often and he is very willing to work with you if you're respectful and give him notice.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course because it is explained really well and the professors are engaged with the students.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights of this course were participating in the on campus studies performed by grad students.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    I would say show up to class everyday. Everyday is important and something new is learned everyday. Don't get distracted by something that is not going to contribute to your education.
