    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    If it's the course that you need, then go ahead and take it. The lectures are long since it is a lot of information to cover. But Professor Dodson makes himself available and approachable for questions during office hours and at the end of class. His tests are trickily worded.

    Course highlights:

    I learned more about disorders that I have personal experience with. The course covered a wide array of events that take place in the brain and how they connect with different parts of the body. It was interesting when the material got to those places where I could comprehend it on a different level.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Rent the textbook if you can. You'll only need it to take notes on the things he covers in class. Be prepared for the amount of information you are signing up for. Study previous tests for the final since he pulls similar questions from there.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    Intro Psych with Professor Smyth is tough, but also very interesting! Smyth manages to make long lectures fly by due to his presentations of the various topics, and the jokes he shares throughout the class.

    Course highlights:

    I came into Intro Psych with absolutely no knowledge of the course, but came out knowing much more than I expected to. This class covers everything from basic principles of psychology to psychological disorders. Since the class is an intro level, you cover a wide variety of topics without diving into too much depth on each topic.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    If you are considering taking this course, be prepared to do a lot of work outside of the classroom. It is very important that you read the textbook chapters he assigns before the next lecture (he gives clicker questions based off the textbook each class!) Sometimes the chapter readings can take multiple hours, and sometimes you make be able to get through it quickly (it really just depends on your pace and whether or not you take notes while doing the reading).
