    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Professor Wood is as good writing professor as you can get. She believes in her students, leads them through all of the steps of the writing process carefully and thoughtfully, and will always encourage you to give your best. She expects much, but also gives much to help you do your best in the course.

    Course highlights:

    She teaches very specifically the good mechanics of APA styl, as well as high level grammar and organization of technical. If you do as she teaches and put in quality effort, you might even be able to publish your paper from the course in Intuition.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Mainly, you just to put in the hours. She lays out a timeline for you of writing your paper; follow it and put your effort into researching your topic and you will do well.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course because it sets you up to be able to write in the research world. Dr. Hill takes a lot of interest in his students and will help you as much as you will go to him and allow him. I learned so much and it is a smaller class size so you can ask more questions.

    Course highlights:

    I learned to be a better writer, to meet with a professor and ask for help. I learned how to make a professional poster and present on it. I also learned how to write and when to use different level headings.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Don't be afraid to meet with your professor or TAs. I waited and hesitated to meet with them but it was so helpful to have one on one time with them and get ideas and edits on my paper.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    This course is great for both psychological and research writing in general. One of the things my employers have praised most is my skill in scientific writing. BYU's Psych program does a great job of teaching and requiring top notch scientific writing and application.

    Course highlights:

    I learned quite a bit about how to write argumentative papers without falling into bias riddled arguments. It did a good job of teaching how to set up and follow through arguments. It helped me to later execute papers that come across as informative and objective.

    Hours per week:

    12+ hours

    Advice for students:

    This course will take a lot of your time. You can try to fly through it and not 'apply your all', but ultimately you will be doing yourself a disservice. Yes, some of the stuff is silly. No one cares nearly so much about APA formatting as this course will lead you to believe. But you can gain actual *practical* skills in writing from this course. Take advantage of that!
