    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    A lot of people took it as an easy A for a gen ed req but I had to take it for my HDFS major. It was so easy and Jan was a fantastic professor that made you excited to learn what she was teaching.

    Course highlights:

    You learn the development stages and processes from conception to elderly ages. You go over the whole birthing process, walking/talking, emotional development, parenting lifestyles, and grandparents.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    Jan goes over everything that is on the test in the lecture right before it. She makes a study guide that she gives to you online and then goes through all of it in class so you just need to know everything on there. And theres no cumulative final so you don't technically have to remember any of it after that test.

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    This course is easy and interesting. I signed up to fulfill a gened, but actually learned a lot. The papers are all super easy and a majority of the exams are common sense, or aspects that you have learned previously in life. A little review, and you'll most likely get an A.

    Course highlights:

    My TA was probably the best teacher I've ever had (Brianna). She was so fun and engaging. She's an easy grader and actually enjoys communicating with her students. You can tell she actually read the papers we wrote by all the comments on the page. Her comments weren't just things like "good job," she was very thorough and tried to relate to you as much as possible.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    Honestly, just skim the readings and go to class. If you go to class, you don't even have to do the reading. The paper's are all super easy and based on common sense. The weekly homework assignment will take you 30 min MAX, and that's if you didn't go to class.

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    She tells you exactly what to expect on tests as long as you attend lectures.

    Course highlights:

    We went through each stage of development from infancy to early childhood to adolescence and early adult, to middle age and old age. It was very interesting to learn about the struggles and successes of each group.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Go to lectures, be thorough in writing prompts, and review slides two or three times before tests and do the readings.
