    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course because Dr. Jewett teaches you everything you need to know for tests, and while he may be a bit monotone, he knows what he is talking about. He's definitely all for helping his students, and often has other students who have taken the course available to help as well.

    Course highlights:

    This course taught me that the biggest difference between high school and college is the amount of class time you have. It makes it harder when you only have a class twice a week, and I went from not having to study to learning how to study and doing it often. I learned a lot about psychology that I hadn't been taught in previous classes during high school, such as clinical psychologists have been able to prescribe medicine to a patient since ten years ago. I've also learned more in depth about sleep and dreaming, the biology of the brain, personality and even learning.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    I would study your notes as often as you can. It's not a hard course per se, but the lack of days to learn the material makes it harder to do well on the tests. Definitely look your notes over as much as you can, it really helps.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    A great intro course! A very broad introduction to psychology, different depending on which professor you have. The book is a very general overview, but if you have Doug Matthews as your professor, things will go back to neuropsychology more often than not. Great course, however only four grades so everything relies on the four exams! Be ready to study!

    Course highlights:

    -basics of psychology: behaviorism, learning, cellular forms of learning, sleep, etc.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Be ready to study a decent amount! Do not spend a few days before the test just going over everything. You'll have to read the book and all the chapters he gives to assign to get an A.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This course allowed me to build a foundation from which the rest of my academic career would be based on. It offered a solid summary of psychological concepts that can be used in everyday life, not only specific to psychology majors. To me, understanding the human experience was a crucial step to be more successful in any class setting.

    Course highlights:

    The basic principles of psychology were presented such as common terms, historical context, and parts of the brain and their functions. As an intro course, it was not a heavy workload that would interfere with other classes or functions.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    It was incredibly beneficial to my overall career. Simply knowing how my brain was working allowed me to better study for final exams, not just specific to psychology. It also helped me deal with emotional burdens and helped me compartmentalize what it meant to be a full time undergraduate student. There were a variety of testing methods including essay, multiple choice, and short answer. It was lecture based with discussion built in.
