    | No strong feelings either way.

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    It's more of a clinical psych class than abnormal psych. The class is rather dull, and you don't even really need to go to class to 4.0 because everything you need to know is on the slides and he posts the slides on D2L.

    Course highlights:

    Pretty easy class and you really don't need any knowledge in psych to do well.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    It is super boring and we never went into detail about the cool disorders like schizophrenia and things like that. Never got to see case reports either which is kind of annoying. Just read the slides and you will do well in the class.

    | Would highly recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Professor Burt was really passionate about the topics covered and she would use personal experiences she had with patients that had the certain mental illnesses we would talk about. She never used any identifiable personal information but she would still give us really good examples about the illnesses she's encountered. When she got to the topic of conduct disorder, that's when you would see her passion as that was her area of study. She's really good at making the class enjoyable and fun.

    Course highlights:

    I learned so much more about mental illnesses in general and the symptoms that come with the illnesses. I learned that they aren't easy to deal with and the stigma that goes with them is really hard socially. I learned more about how its a combination of environment and genetics that really effect the severity and the manifestation of each mental illness, not just one or the other. I loved the section on personality disorders and found it really fascinating.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    She wants you to buy the textbook because when it comes to studying for exams, she uses the book and lecture notes for questions on the exam. Typically one of the LAs will start a google doc page where the whole class can contribute information regarding the topics she puts on the study guide. That is really helpful, especially for the final.
