    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    First of all, if you ever get the chance to learn anything from this professor, jump at the opportunity. She is by far my favorite college professor. She is enthusiastic, fun, happy, an extremely knowledgeable on the material. I would definitely call her an approachable expert. Enough about the professor, now onto the class. If I ran my own college, I would make PSYCH 101 a mandatory class for graduation for all students because it is so relevant to our everyday lives. Every time I learned something new, I would leave class and immediately see it in action, and that experience really gave me new and better perspectives on the world around me.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights were definitely having a phenomenal professor, learning things that explained actions of those around me (which gave me better understanding of relationships with my friends and family), and, as a personal interest, learning about neuropsychology: the brain's role in behavior, as well as a few other biological events the influence behavior.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Do the reading, and really try to appreciate what the course has to offer. Psychology is not so strenuous of a science, it is more of a soft science, so in order to keep up, all you have to do is put forth minimal effort to do the reading and look for the connections between the material and your own life. It was noticing how material applied to my own life that really made PSYCH 101 a stand out class, and probably still one of the best classes I have taken.

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    I recommend this course if you are somebody who is interested in how the mind works and why humans behave the way we do. It was a very dynamic class that was simple to follow, as long as you showed up. Professor Kirkland was great at dumbing down the difficult concepts to make us understand and process the material better. She also offered a great deal of extra, specialized ways to study and get the help we needed. This class was fairly basic, but provided a really good intro to human behavior and the study of the mind, covering various topics including the effects of drugs, human consciousness, brain disorders, and why we think the way we think.

    Course highlights:

    Along with learning more about the mind and behavioral habits of general people, I learned a lot about my own personal habits too. When you are studying why people do the things they do, and researching methods proven to be successful in aiding in our daily endeavors, you start to apply them to your own life and begin to realize why you might bite your nails, which in turn leads you to a method on breaking common bad habits. You learn what works for you and what doesn't, and you can use it throughout all your other classes as well. By discovering how others think, you can discover how you think, which is what i learned from this class.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    This course is quite a bit of reading material but as long as you break it up into little sections for each day you will have no problem and it will feel as if you are barely doing any work. While it does tend to be a lot of reading, i highly recommend doing the reading because in lectures, she will go over a few key points in detail that the book may not explain and you will want the extra info for the test. Also, it is impossible for the professor to go over every single point, so some of the material cannot be learned in class and you will need the reading to aid you in preparing for the test.
