    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I recommend this class because it is a good preparation for helping you specialize in the field of psychology and teaching you how to do the stuff you'll need to in university. The main issue I had is that this particular course was fairly disorganized when I took it, but if you stay focused, you'll be fine.

    Course highlights:

    The really big things you learn in this class are how to research a question effectively, and how to write in the APA style. It's also helpful for learning what you want out of your school experience.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    This course is meant to be taken as one of the LAST classes before transferring to a 4-year institution. If i had known this before I took it, I would have waited a couple more semesters. The other thing is be thinking about what you want to research as soon as possible, the setup for the final paper/presentation is pretty informal so it sneaks up on you.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This course will teach you extremely useful research methods, how to distinguish between good and bad research, as well as the what to expect during the years ahead with school. There is one particular assignment called a literature review that helps to analytically digest current research.

    Course highlights:

    I gained an understanding of what it really means to think like a scientist. All the information about grad school, and things like internships and assistantships, as well as how to apply for these different things is really something that I hadn't experienced in any other classes. This class is very useful and full of information that every college student should know.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    You need to be able to patiently read through a lot, and I mean a lot, of research. And not just read it, but understand and interpret and analyze what you are reading. So reading skills are very important. Study tip: The essential oil of Rosemary has been found to help with memory (something that I learned through my many hours of researching during this class, in fact). When I study, I put rosemary into an oil diffuser, and I also have the science to back this all up, so I know it can work, and I'd like to believe that it works for me.

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    I loved this course! Not only was Professor Emily very helpful, but also very good at teaching the course material. This was a pretty easy class if you keep up with your work!

    Course highlights:

    In this course you learn about the different stages of the lifecycle. A highlight of this course for me was when we learned about the effects of stress on health. Being a person who gets stressed out very easily, this was very informing and has since helped me cope better with my stress.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    I would say to the students wanting to take this course to keep up with the material and your homework! If you do that, as well as show up to class, they will be successful.
