    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    The classes are informative, but attendance is a must. The class is lecture heavy, but there are online videos you will have to watch. The videos are very informative, interesting, and pertain to the coursework. You will have one mid-term paper, 6-8 pages in length. I would recommend starting the paper early. The Professor is very approachable and will help guide you if you need help.

    Course highlights:

    The most interesting part of the course is learning about psychological disorders. I learned a lot about different disorders, symptoms, and treatment. Specifically, I learned about different cognitive behavioral therapies (CBT) that are being used to treat people who have PTSD with a high rate of success. I thought that was interesting considering the amount of Veterans we have in our country.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    You must have the current edition of the textbook and bring it with you to class. The lectures rely heavily on the textbook. Also, come to class and come to class on-time. The Professor is nice, but if you miss important information because you weren't there she's not going to go over it just for you. Take notes.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course because the professor has the ability to provide information in such a way that it is understood my most people.

    Course highlights:

    The final portion of the tests ask you to provide written responses which can include your own life in your analysis.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Sit in the front row. It helps to stay focussed when the material gets dry.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Mr. Lutz is an amazing teacher who has created an easy to follow flow of the information. He also uses a mix of book examples and personal exams that help make it easy to remember the information needed for the exams. The exams are hard but not if you study hard, listen in class, and take strong notes. He enjoys class participation; so make sure you come prepared with questions and always ask a question if you are confused he will always clarify.

    Course highlights:

    When taking this class I was going to use it to help understand how people think when it comes to buying real estate. I never thought that I would change my major to psychology but after learning all that we did in this class I found myself intrigued and wanting to learn more. You will learn the basics of psychology and how the human mind works. This class also goes into the different mental diagnoses and different methods of treatment to include both medication and different psychological treatment such as cognitive behavioral treatment and psychodynamic treatment.

    Hours per week:

    12+ hours

    Advice for students:

    Record the class. He doesn't follow the book exactly and he will give you all the information that is needed for the exam. Read the material before each class so that way if something is confusing you can ask questions. Make sure to start the study guide as soon as it is received since he will do a review the class before the exam. You will want to have your questions ready. As well make sure to be in each class and on time as he starts promptly. If you are going to miss a class make sure to have multiple people in the class that you can get notes from because everyone takes notes differently than one another and it is always better to have more than enough notes than not enough.
