    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Would totally recommend this course to students looking to learn about research hands on!

    Course highlights:

    Learning to conduct research and experiments on your own was a fun highlight of this course.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Be ready to read and really indulge yourself in the material. The material is not hard but very wordy which can make it difficult.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    This course will provide an overview and introduction to the research methods used by psychologists for furthering our knowledge and understanding about human behavior. The bulk of this course will be dedicated to methods traditionally associated with classical experimental research such as the independent group design, repeated measures design, factorial design, etc. In the final section of the term, we will, as time permits, also cover the non experimental research approaches such as naturalistic observation, content analysis, and questionnaires.

    Course highlights:

    Being able to participate in a research study as a subject and learn how to conduct social experiments was very informative and fun.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Read as much as you can from many different sources. Find reliable sources and always give credit where credit is due.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    It is a lot of work so be prepared to know your stuff and don't be afraid to ask questions even though it can be confusing.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights of this course were the bonds with different people I met within the class since there were so few of us as well as we worked in groups. I learned surprisingly a lot but some of it was not retained.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Be prepared. Go into this class with a positive attitude as well as a strong work ethic. If you're lazy and a procrastinator this is not the class for you (although it may be a requirement) so good luck.
