    | Probably wouldn’t recommend.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    He just reads his notes, so sometimes it's hard to maintain focus. Movies are shown every now and then...some are better than others. Tests are manageable. Memorizing stuff about Milgram is half the battle, especially in the latter part of the course. Takes attendance (God only knows why). Just show up and you'll be fine for the most part.

    Course highlights:

    Class is hard unless you go to class and do the readings. Tests weren't so hard. Focus on the actual psychologists he talks about! that is how you pass the class. Always get names of movies, studies, and experimenters.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    By far the WORST class I have ever taken. Horrendous teaching, terrible TAs, extremely poor communication-no one EVER emails you back. He makes no sense when talking in class, tests are atrocious and their grading "procedures" are horrible. Please if you have any other options to take this with another professor PLEASE DO SO.

    | No strong feelings either way.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    really interesting even though I am not a major. Funny class discussions and good examples of how psychology fits into everyday life.

    Course highlights:

    Half the class is based on participation and online labs. The online labs are easy just time consuming. She does clicker questions and group activities in class. She never tells us whats going to be on the exam, so you have to memorize the book from cover to cover because she asks the most random questions. Her lectures are so pointless.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    She is a very nice professor who is passionate about psychology. Easy to approach and talk to if you have problems or concerns. Learned a lot about family psychology through weekly discussion style lectures, textbook readings, and writing assignments.
