    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course because i genuinely feel like it affects everyone. I gained such an understanding on the human mind and i truly enjoyed diving into that. In this course you get to learn about the evolution of experimentation, how different emotions and substances change our brains and attitudes. You even get to learn how the patterns in serial killers behaviors and how their brains are a little different than the average. It's a content heavy course but hardly ever boring.

    Course highlights:

    I gained knowledge on not only how my own mind works, but an understanding on why other people's work so differently than mine. It gives you a real insight on how fragile yet complex the human mind can really be. We got to learn how our brains change through emotions and release an array of chemicals and hormones depending on the severity of the emotion. Growing up with ADHD, i really enjoyed getting to hear why my brain works the way it does, it really helped me work on myself and understand more about my thought process.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    This is typically a content heavy course so time should be invested and executed to towards studying. Flashcards, quizlet, and office hours to discuss complex subjects with the professor are highly recommended. It's a course you definitely want to take the time to read over the notes before bed each night just to lock it in. Memorizing is important so take the time to sit down and study seriously.
