    | Would highly recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I completed this course in the summer so I did not have the regular tutor (therefore cannot comment on their teaching) but I'm glad I did it then because John was so understanding that for many it was their very first unit and eased us all into it. The content jumps around a lot a it tries to cover briefly, all aspects of psychology. It is a great introductory unit that helps to guide you as to which area of psychology you would like to pursue.

    Course highlights:

    I gained a great overview of psychological practices, statistics, testing and the different fields that you are able to specialise in. I also learnt how to structure essays for psychology and use the APA referencing style.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    Start early. There are a lot of fiddly facts to remember for exams and it is easy enough to read ahead to allow more time for revision at the end.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Most people who take a psychology course who aren't majoring in it usually enjoy the material learned, but become overwhelmed with the amount of material there is. Since this is an introductory class a lot is covered throughout each lesson. The way Dr. Peterson designed her course and her over all teaching ability makes the class so enjoyable and easy to comprehend. Giving us great background on each topic, specifying which terms are important, and also leaving some of it up to us to learn by leaving out certain information that we must read in the book in order to make sure we are keeping up to date. Her quizzes are fast and simple, but ensure understanding of each unit and her exams cover a wide variety of questions with varying difficulty to accurately rate a student's knowledge of the information. Not to mention she is a very kind, funny women who gives extra credit opportunities once in a while and specifically designed the course to make sure if student's do poorly on the exams, they can still pass if all other assignments are done and done well.

    Course highlights:

    The main lesson plan for this class arises with the understanding students gain that although most of our lives we have been taught that we are one of a kind and no one else can be like us, we are actually all so similar. From a biological and psychological standing most humans think, behave, and communicate almost exactly alike. We talk about the anatomy of the brain in order to create a concrete understanding, then expands to the mind which then becomes a little harder to grasp since one cannot hold emotion in their hands. Toward the end of the course Dr. Peterson starts to narrow down with the topic of personality, which is the one thing that separates most people from everyone else in the world. All the studies conducted, case studies shown, and mind blowing realizations one has during this class about themselves and the people around them make for a very enjoyable experience.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Read the assigned chapters before each lesson, there is some material that shows up on the study guides and exams that she does not teach in class in order to ensure that students are keeping up with their reading.
