    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    This course is very interesting, whether you are a psych major or not. It deals with both the commonly known and not-as-widespread mental illnesses that exist in the world along with the advancements made in the understanding, preventing, and treating these illnesses. Furthermore, Professor Shors makes this class especially interesting in many ways. For one, she is a very qualified and experienced neuroscientist who conducts current research, so she is more than familiar with the information she teaches as well as up-to-date information regarding the field. Best of all, though, she is very cool and approachable, even despite the large class size, and facilitates learning by bringing in guest speakers who relay to us their first-hand experiences about dealing with a particular mental illness discussed in class. She is definitely the one to take if you are interested in this class, and I am sure you will not get bored!

    Course highlights:

    The guest speakers brought in to give us a more personal perspective of what it is like to have and deal with their mental illness. Many of these speakers are also VERY inspiring and have come very far in life despite their conditions.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    NEVER SKIP CLASS!! Firstly, because you would not want to..this class was probably the only one I would look forward to every week, and I made sure not to skip it despite the many temptations to do so. Secondly, and more importantly, the professor does not post the notes online, so you have to go to class to write your own notes. You cannot rely on another person's notes either because they might not be as thorough or may think things are not as important to write down than you would. Her exams and extra credit opportunities are solely based on what is mentioned in class so if you do not attend, you will fail.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would take this course because it is challenging but you will learn a lot. Professor Shors is an excellent and brilliant person.

    Course highlights:

    I gained pretty good knowledge of many types of mental disorders and personality types for abnormal behaviors. You also got insight to what parts of the brain gets effected by these disorders and some of the types of drugs that can be used.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    She is kind of sporadic and her exams can be difficult but she is fair. Make sure to study hard because the material can be a bit difficult.
