    It's a class that really questions the way one lives their life in order to achieve the most fulfilling and positive life.

    Go to lecture, and read the textbook. The textbook is your main source of information and you are directly tested on it, whereas lecture will help explain the textbook material and apply it to everyday life.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Psych 243 with Dr. Karen Gasper was not a very challenging course. The course can also be used for social science general education credits. The course requires that you do some reading but the chapters are not long and you have time to put into more difficult courses. The lecture consists of a powerpoint that is easy to follow as well as videos that are examples of the concepts taught. Dr. Gasper can teach at a very fast pace, however, she loves for students to ask questions during class. For students who may not like to speak in class, you can ask questions during class via text messaging to a number that she provides. There are study guide materials, office hours, and review sessions held by the TA if you need further clarification on a question that you have previously asked. Overall, the class is very laid back and is graded based on exams and in-class assignments. The in-class assignments are very easy and are not graded for correctness just completion.

    Course highlights:

    You learn about social concepts that are essential to being a leader. We covered concepts from prejudice to being effective in group settings (i.e. teamwork), from cognitive dissonance, and advertising to aggressiveness. What I liked most about the course was that it taught each of these concepts considering individual and cross-cultural differences. The course also teaches methods to approaching and giving help in situations, especially those that may be deemed emergencies. Lastly, there is a section that gives instruction on how to execute a successful experiment based on the scientific method.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    1. Do not miss any classes - lecture videos and powerpoints are very important - even if the powerpoints are uploaded online, still go to class! 2. Read the chapters - I suggest reading a chapter a week - the textbook is fairly easy to read and a great reference for important examples that are mentioned on exams 3. Answer all of the review questions at the end of each section and the test questions at the end of each chapter. Reading the textbook and being attentive in lecture will probably get you a fairly high grade.

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    I thought this class provided a lot of useful information that I could use beyond this class. The material that I got out of this class has been applicable to my lifestyle. I learned a lot about health and emotions.

    Course highlights:

    There are several guest speakers throughout the semester, which are super interesting. It shows that this material is used in real life.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    Read the textbook! Most of the test questions come from the book.
