    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Nick Tuttle is one of the most incredible professors I have ever studied under. I would highly recommend taking any of his classes because of the incredible effort he puts forward to creating strong bonds with his students.

    Course highlights:

    In this general psychology course, I gained a broad understanding of topics such as sleep, memory, learning, abnormal psychology, and development. Professor Tuttle not only taught the material, but demonstrated real-life application of everything we learned.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    Overall, it is easiest to succeed in this class if you take detailed notes and review them well before exams. Also, projects are very important and make for easy points. Attend class regularly and participate, and you are guaranteed to do well in any of Professor Tuttle's classes.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course because of the fascinating lessons and the endless, gripping information that psychology has to offer. I believe that anyone would benefit from learning introducing information of psychology.

    Course highlights:

    The majority of the factual information I learned in this course was new to me, and to say the least; it blew my mind. I had no idea our brains were capable of so much. One of my highlights of the class was looking at statistical evidence. I strongly enjoyed reading about how many people are affected by psychological disorders or what how much information we are able to retain and the factors that determine that. Taking that Psychology I course changed my perspective of the world, society specifically, and I will continue to take my learned knowledge and use it in my day-to-day life.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    If you decide to take this course, there are many things to keep in mind. For one, keep an open minded perspective. Certain facts about our mind are hard to believe, and some may contradict a personal opinion. Academically, be prepared for a good amount of work. There will be essays, tests, and research projects, as well as opinionated projects. Although it does take some time, it is definitely worth it, and you will most likely finish the class with a new outlook on yourself and the world.

    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.
