    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Professor Layman was hands down one of the best professors I had this school year. Her passion towards the subject allowed me to understand the curriculum due to her entertaining and professional manner in class to where I actually was excited to attend the class every T&TH. Whether or not you need this credit for your major or for an elective I would highly recommend taking this course with Layman. Psychology in general is vital for us to learn about how and why we do and think certain things and Layman makes the subject a life lesson rather than just an attendance class.

    Course highlights:

    She drops the lowest test grade and allows an extra credit opportunity! You can obtain an A average if you complete all the assignments and have a C+ average on tests. I learned in depth about social psychology, mental illnesses, and the subconscious (there were more chapters of course, but these were the objectives I quite enjoyed learning about.)

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Complete all the LearnSmarts, she drops the lowest yet the LearnSmarts activities prepare you quite well for the tests. Also attend class, do not skip and you wouldn't want to skip anyways, but reviewing the notes taken also helped a lot for the tests. Overall don't opt out of attendance or the assignments. It doesn't require excessive reading, but be alert of the assignment deadlines.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    If you're interested in learning about the mind and why we behave the way we do, I would recommend taking this course, but if you really want to enjoy what you learn take this class with Dr. Laymen she's excellent and is really passionate with what she teaches.

    Course highlights:

    I liked being able to learn in class but also had access outside of class with the online program SmartBook which helps enforce what we learn each day and is a great study tool. I learned how to remember as well as retain the information I was taught.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Come to class, although there's the lectures online the professor always gives extra information that we don't can't get on our own. Also take advantage of the online programs, and don't let things pile up, read the chapter required for the week before going to class.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I think it is the best class ever. Professor Coleman is very generous with the grades and he is funny which makes the class really interesting. There are online learn smart assignments that naturally boost your grades. You also have the option of not taking the final.

    Course highlights:

    The highlight was the extra credit. It is because of all the extra credit that I received during the semester that I did not have to take the final because I had already made an A on the course. I learnt quite a few things like how to evaluate people and the stereotypes people face due to judgement by society.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Take it. Psychology is a good course. Also being a psychologist does not mean just being a shrink. There are many jobs types of psychologists out there so there is lots of exposure.
