    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I've always found psychology fascinating, knowing what goes on in the human mind and trying to understand the truth be hide our brain and mind, and how they work together and also how the differ. Finding out what are neurotransmitter, dendrites and so much more on what makes up the brain. How the frontal lobe is and how that controls common sense and problem solving. Psychology is about finding out the mystery in our own minds and brain which is amazing.

    Course highlights:

    The highlight of this course were talking about classical conditioning. For example the famous study by Pavlov on how he made dogs salivate by ringing a bell because every time he rang a bell he later gave them foo so just ringing the bell made the dogs salivate. That is classical conditioning. There are so much more to talk about of this course that I will need an essay to cover it. That is just a brief topic on what classical conditioning is.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Read the book and take notes and listento the professor because in the long run your the one that's getting the education and wants to learn not the professor. If you have question don't be afraid to raise your hand. Going to office hours when you need help on the material.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course because both the teacher and the content of the class are great! Allison actually writes on the board, so students are able to go the same speed as she is. This enables the student to not get behind in the lecture.

    Course highlights:

    I was able to learn about different psychological disorders such as depressions, anxiety, and schizophrenia. I learned the criteria for meeting the disorders. I also learned about medications and different theories from psychologists contributing to some therapies.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    To succeed in this course, be sure to keep up with the reading! Also, show up to class as much as you can because Allison puts what the class discusses on the test sometimes.
