    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Paul Landen is one of the most enjoyable parts of attending college. He is a combination of tough and motivating that pushes me to be a better student and keeps me excited to come to class.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights were learning about the abnormal side of psychology and having a better understanding of the terms. The lessons were broken up by movies and personal stories and the course was a great combination of text and talking.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Read your text! Making additional notes on the slides given to you is very helpful, as test questions will often come from the side topics.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    It was a very enjoyable class with a great support group and an easy atmosphere.

    Course highlights:

    The best part was learning about the different psychological disorders and how misfiring synapses in the brain or miscommunication between nerves can cause massive disruptions in the body and in the person's daily cognitive functions

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Make sure you take notes and pay attention. The tests aren't too hard, but you need to make sure you have your book handy

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Professor Lewis was amazing at giving examples and explaining practical applications of the concepts we were learning in class. Her tests, quizzes, and assignments all involved different styles of questions, so it was never just a huge bubbling task nor did the essay question feel like a burden. Ultimately, my favorite part was being given examples of cases and determining a diagnosis based on what information we were given.

    Course highlights:

    I learned a lot about what field work is actually like, what specific things to look for in a diagnosis, and generally how to analyze things from an objective standpoint. My understanding of psychopathology/abnormal psychology improved significantly by the end of this course.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    I would make a point of remembering specific vocabulary words, the little differences between different disorders (it helps to lump groups of them together then figure out the small differences).
