    | No strong feelings either way.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    The course was ok, the subject matter was pretty interesting. Not my favorite psych class though. It was less about child development and more focused on infants and what capabilities they have/don't have before infancy.

    Course highlights:

    If you're looking to learn about what shapes a child's development to adulthood, this class isn't for you. It is more focused on experiments in which infants were tested to see what they can/cannot comprehend with little about how it shapes the person they become.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Go to class, the tests are lecture heavy. The readings are just research papers on experiments that are usually helpful, though not really necessary for the exams.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course for anyone interested in developmental psychology or education. Dr. Liberman makes the class very interactive by encouraging discussion. She also provides clear explanations when we ask questions in class. She provides us with interesting research papers to read that prepare us for the lectures.

    Course highlights:

    We learned about the roles of nature and nurture in so many aspects of the development of a child. Some topics included fear, bilingualism, socializing, gender. Various examples of research under each topic are utilized to enhance our understanding of them.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Read the research papers before the lectures. They provide context for the lecture, and allow you to listen and learn in class instead of trying to understand what the professor is talking about when you hear certain ideas for the first time.

    | Would highly recommend.

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    I thoroughly enjoyed this course. German is a fantastic teacher that explains material in a very clear way. She also incorporates a lot of videos into her lecture slides which I found to be extremely helpful.

    Course highlights:

    I loved learning the basic steps of how children develop. Also German was a wonderful professor.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    You definitely need to attend lecture in order to do well. If you attend lecture, the midterm and final will be easy.
