Not too easy. Not too difficult.
Course Overview:
In order to be prepared as a Therapist or a Psychologist, you need to have an understanding on how statistical research has come about. You need to be able to look at and interpret data and ask more questions to find definitive answers. Psychology is a science. No two people are alike. Therefore, statistical data may be skewed in that they interpret things as a whole and not individually. This class will help you understand the statistics you are reading and enable to you to further gather evidence to prove or disprove the supplied information.
Course highlights:
Statistics of any kind are terrifying!!! At least to me. I immediately had anxiety when thinking about taking this class. Lucky for me, the professor made things easy to comprehend and I was able to breeze through the class (for the most part). Once you get the hang of statistics, it comes naturally to you...just like everything else in life when it's applied repeatedly. Don't panic when you start the class. Ask the Professor as many questions as you need to! They are there to help you understand and are trained to break it down for those of you who are like me....statistics challenged!!!
Hours per week:
12+ hours
Advice for students:
Ask questions!!!! Get Tutor help if needed! Give yourself time to really study the material they are giving you. Take notes. Interact with your fellow students. And make sure to read the instructions the Professor gives you so that you do't miss out on important information on assignments. NO question is a dumb question.
