    | Would highly recommend.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    We also did our own version of a mock trial with students either being on defense, prosecution or an expert witness. I even volunteered to be hooked up to a lie detector test. The book was so good, I still have it on my bookshelf. That is not a common thing to do with textbooks.

    Course highlights:

    It was very fascinating to learn about how memory impacts the quality of eye-witness testimony, specifically in criminal line-ups. Other topics included: whether eye-witness confidence is their memories correlates with actual truth, criminal profiling, pleas of insanity, and social policy. We learned a lot about old court cases and the rational that led to the final decisions. There was a definite theme of questioning morality as well.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    If you want an easy class, don't enroll in this course. However, if you want to be challenged, have deep critical thought and learn about interesting topics, you'll love this class.
