    | Would highly recommend.

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    She is a great professor, she pushes you to do your best work. She also gives studying advice to those who are in need of it. She is the first professor in college that has made learning fun!

    Course highlights:

    The highlights of this course I couldn't just pick one, but she used different study techniques to help all walks of the "learning life". We learned about general psychology things, but with each of our 16 chapters she went more into depth even without needing the book, because she is so experienced.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Make sure you listen to every word she says, even write it down. Take plentiful notes. Do brief readings before and after class. And enjoy the material

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    The professor is pretty laid back and easy to talk to. You are counted on attendance though so make sure to be there every class.

    Course highlights:

    We recently learned that the brain cannot do two things at once such as texting and driving. Most of us think we can, however, the reality is that the brain simply cannot do it. The two functions actually use the same tunnel.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Show up for every class because it counts toward your final grade. Read the chapter for each week.

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    I would highly recommend this course. My passion is marine biology but this course introduced me to a new interest. Professor Harris has a true passion for phycology. He teaches in a way that you as a student will understand. Rather than a test being timed and rushed he focuses on you getting the correct answers so you actually learn.

    Course highlights:

    This course truly taught me about the human mind and how it works. One concept in particular was selective attention, also known as inattentional blindness. It is the failure to notice something without the association of visual defects. One example he showed us was a group of people passing a ball back and forth and apparently a guy in a gorilla suit walked through the group of people. The entire class did not notice the man in the gorilla suit because they were focused on the ball being passed around.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Professor Harris sets up study sessions before every exam which are extremely helpful. He tells you exactly what you need to know for the exams so that you are not wasting your time studying information you do not need to know. Definitely pay attention in class, sometimes the exact questions and answers are in the PowerPoint. Print out the PowerPoints and follow along as he lectures, he will tell you information the is critical for the exams.
