    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This course is a great introduction to other psychology courses. We read many studies conducted my researchers to gain information on emotional intelligence and reasons for certain actions. The class helped me throughout my other psychology courses for my minor.

    Course highlights:

    Although the teacher never lectured about mental illnesses, we are required to do a group project where we pick a mental illness to study. This allows the students to learn more on topics they are interested in and that their classmates are interested in.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    To succeed in this class you must read the required material before class. There are many in-class group activities so you want to be prepared. If you need help on papers, don't be afraid to ask Dr. Sue. She's very kind and doesn't mind offering her opinion to help her students.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    It's a required course for many majors, especially at Carroll University where our three largest majors are PT, nursing, and psychology. It's a fantastic introductory course to take even if you're not in any of these majors though, since the lessons in this course apply to everyone in some way or another. However, if you took AP Psychology in high school, be aware that the course material is largely the same, just different topics are given more emphasis than in high school, such as research.

    Course highlights:

    My favorite part of this course, despite taking AP Psychology in high school, was the depth into which we delved into topics my high school didn't cover. We were required to look at current research articles for the course, which supplemented our learning with new research and the most recent information performed by colleges and universities around the world. I found it really fascinating to see where we were at in our research now compared to the studies we all learn about in school, like Pavlov's research.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    There's a lot of terms and new vocabulary to keep up with, and your teacher will most likely quiz you on those. Make sure you can relate what you're learning about to what you already know, and those new terms and concepts will come much easier to you.
