This class was tough.
I would highly recommend this course to any PSYC major at UofC, and any non PSYC majors looking for a fun challenge. PSYC 365 dives into all aspects of the mind and cognition, including memory, language, thought processes, executive functions and planning, and much more. Dr. San Juan is a great prof. She is extremely passionate about what she teaches and wants her students to succeed. She makes an already interesting class even more enjoyable and has fun doing it.
I used my thought processes to learn about thought processes. It is common in this course to be using aspects of your cognition when learning about those very same aspects of cognition, which is extremely interesting. For example, you cannot look at any of the words in this sentence without reading them. Things you may do every day but always overlook are the types of things you will learn in PSYC 365, which makes it not only fun to learn about, but highly applicable to everyday life as well, making this course both fulfilling and useful.

Advice for students:
The textbook is a must for this course. The curriculum is very dense and does not allow for everything to be covered thoroughly in lecture so you will find yourself relying on the textbook for some aspects. That being said, by taking good notes, reading the textbook, and developing a clear understanding of all course material, you will find it easy to succeed in the course.
