    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This course is definitely geared towards psych majors, so anyone interested in abnormal behaviors and disorders should definitely take it.

    I learned about all the various abnormal behaviors, and the symptoms of behavioral disorders. Dr. Chaffee really makes the class engaged and excited about these topics.

    Hours per week:

    12+ hours

    Advice for students:

    Read the text and keep up with lectures. Take thorough notes and refer back to them when doing discussions. Really understand the material, because everything said in class will be on exams and quizzes.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This course reviewed the fundamentals of personality theory and where it all began, which was with Freud. The theorists/psychologists discussed in class were well chosen, since each covered various 'takes' on the things that shape our personality.

    Course highlights:

    The highlight of this course (for me) was the study of Carl Gustav Jung. He was way ahead of his time and departed from the Freudian school of thought, which gave way to other theorists who came after him (until the present day). I'm now taking a course on Jung because I enjoyed it so much!

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    I'd say that if you're looking for a course that gives a good overview of where and when the study of personality theory began, this is a great choice. The teacher is insightful and encourages class participation, which makes it even better. Hearing others' points of view is always interesting.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This course was so interesting and fascinating. I enjoyed coming to class every day because I knew I was going to learn something new.

    Course highlights:

    My professor was so sweet and excited to teach her lessons ever day which made it pleasant to come to her class. It was easy to follow, and every lesson had something major that would capture your complete attention.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    Stay on track with readings and try to jot down quick notes, but not too many. It is easier to retain information by hearing it and seeing the powerpoint slides provided. Writing too much can distract you from what's going on in the lesson.
