    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    Let me start off by saying that this course was one of the most difficult classes I've taken at BYU. There was a large amount of work, reading, and hard tests involved. I thought more deeply during that class than I ever have in my life! That said, I absolutely loved this class! I learned an incredible amount of information, and I also learned how to think like a philosopher. I learned to ask questions and to ponder and study things out. Dr. Gantt is an incredible teacher and a brilliant man. I would absolutely recommend this course.

    Course highlights:

    I learned about the patterns of thought, and how the modern culture of America came about. I learned why I do certain things that I've always done--things that we all do "just because." I learned about the history of what I am planning to study.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    Take it from Dr. Gantt! He is awesome. And do the required readings! That is key. Get to know the people in your group and study with them. Take advantage of the TAs because they know a lot.

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    Professor Hawk is a Grad student who taught this course this semester. Besides the material being very interesting to me, Professor Hawk truly cared about the success of us, his students. He made tests fair, made sure we knew exactly what was expected, and provided ample opportunities for constructive learning during class. He graded things fairly, and was very willing to answer students' questions.

    Course highlights:

    We covered the history of psychology all the way back to the early philosophers and explored the ideas that eventually turned psychology into a science. Wundt, Titchener, Freud, Maslow, and Skinner will all become very familiar to you. You will learn about almost every famous psychologist that has contributed to the science. This course will help you to think about psychology in a new way, instead of just thinking of it as the science that it is today. You will understand the challenged that faced psychology, and the challenges it still faces today as it struggles to be accepted as a science.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Come to class! Seriously! You will learn so much in class, and that will greatly reduce the amount of studying that you will need to do outside of class. If you try to learn it all on your own, you will hate this class.
