    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    Professor Dautovich was a fantastic professor! She organized the class in a way that was extremely convenient! Labs would be due a certain day, notes would be posted prior to class, writing assignments had particular due dates. I found this extremely helpful because it made it simple to create a schedule/routine for when to complete certain things. As long as you follow through and keep up with the work you will succeed in this course! The content is relatively simply, the Professor makes sure to provide all of the information necessary to do great! Prof. Dautovich did plenty of little activities and clicker activities to make it fun while also being sure we understood the content. I really appreciated how she genuinely tried to engage with her students! With a class of 200+ students she would still manage to walk down the aisles and interact with us. A professor who seems to enjoy what they do is always the best to learn from!

    Course highlights:

    I really learned a lot about each broad topic that we covered! We learned about Development, Emotion, Sleep, and so many more things. It was so easy to learn and retain info in each topic!

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    1: Since Prof.D posts the notes online first, I found that it was most helpful to type the notes posted prior to class. That way once you are in class, you'll only have to focus on what she is saying and add it into the notes. (SN: NOTING INFO SAID IN CLASS IS CRUCIAL). it is basically impossibly to type the notes and listen to what is being said at the same time so it's definitely in your best interest to do it this way! 2: Try to always attend class, attendance isn't taken but every now and then there will be activities or clicker questions. If you miss too many it'll bite you in the butt come the end of the semester when activity points are tallied. Also, it's hard to stay on track without being in lecture and hearing her additional notes. 3: A study guide is given before every exam. USE IT. I would normally just copy and paste it into where I write my notes then fill in the topics/questions with info from my notes. Most times you'll so much as have to just copy and paste your notes into the particular section and not have to bother typing anything! Other times you may have to use the book- usually you'll be instructed on when. It's just beneficial to do it this way so that all of the content that you have to study for is in one place, making it easy to just pull up and review. Study! Study! Study! You can't just wing it. You have to study because detail is pretty important when it comes to psych 4: Get your SONA research credits taken care of early! That way, when the semester picks up you won't have to stress over the fact that you haven't met the requirement. Plus, in-person studies seem to become scarce as the end of the semester nears.

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    I would highly recommend this class, especially with Dr. Gramling. This class is not only interesting, but allows you to consider your major.

    Course highlights:

    I learned a lot of insight on not only common psychological disorders, but also how the brain functions.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Make sure you go to class and do the clicker questions. Also don't wait until the last minute to do your out of class assignments.
