    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    I highly recommend this course, especially for people not interested in pursuing a career in Psychology! The teacher was not fantastic, his lectures were a bit boring, but the material we covered was mind-boggling! It covers the basics to how humans think and function, and it is full of really fascinating facts with which to impress ones friends!

    Course highlights:

    I really enjoyed the section on vision. The fact that what we experience through our eyes is a simulation put up by the occipital lobe is unbelievable! We watched a video in class on optical illusions and why they occur, and the best part was that it made sense. I would think that most of the stuff addressed in a Psychology class would go right over my head, but none of it was confusing!

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    The assigned book is full of fascinating facts and little side-stories, so I would advise reading the whole book, cover to cover. Depending on the teacher, one usually does not have to read the whole book, but I did because it is the only text-book I have ever read that made me want to keep reading and not fall asleep!

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I absolutely loved this class. Psychology has always been an interest to me but I did not know how multifaceted the subject was until I took this course. April Waggoner was a great professor and she really did everything she could to help you pass the class. She assigned quite a large amount of homework but I enjoyed the class so much that it was not a chore at all.

    Course highlights:

    A few of the highlights of the course were how the midterm and final were very straightforward. Professor Waggoner made sure that everyone was prepared before the tests by playing review games in the days before they were administered. I learned so much about psychology and even about biology and how that relates to behavior. Interesting to say the least.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    The best advice I can give about this course is to turn in everything on time and make sure your work is thorough. If I remember correctly, she does not accept late work unless you made arrangements with her beforehand or had some sort of emergency. Also, she can be somewhat of a tough grader so make sure whatever work you turn in is your absolute best.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    April Waggoner was an outstanding teacher who offered lots of extra credit and really allowed every student to learn by incorporating in every learning style.

    Course highlights:

    The highlight of the course for me was the movie analysis. In this you get to apply all the learning you have obtained into a movie you enjoy watching, and then you write a paper about it. In this course I learned a lot about how the human brain functions and how mental illnesses relate to chemical imbalances within the brain. It was a very fascinating course

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Take all the extra credit opportunities, and study after class to reiterate what you learned.
