    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Professor Schepeler is an expert on abnormal psychology and explains each concept very well. She draws from historical accounts as well as personal experiences, all of which are very interesting and will provide you with the best understanding. Schepeler never fails to crack a joke in order to make light of the occasional depressing and off-putting topics. The class is filled with captivating information that hold your interest throughout the entire course.

    Course highlights:

    I gained a lot more information and perspective on mental illnesses, treatments, and the stigma surrounding it. Psychology has come a long way, from the first surgical lobotomy to the first effective antidepressant to the even more advanced treatments we have today. Nevertheless, this course showed me that there is much to be learned, especially about the past mistakes made in psychology in order to continue advancing and improving treatments for those who suffer from mental illnesses.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Go to class and listen attentively to the lectures. They are not a bore to listen to and will provide you with helpful information for your midterms and finals. There are no extra homework assignments so pay attention and read the assigned novel, "The Unquiet Mind"!
