    | Would highly recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    It's a fun class to experience. You learn a lot from the professor, his lectures keep you entertained sometimes. It's not that difficult of a class

    Course highlights:

    The professor is great and he cares for the students. He explains the most complicated of concepts into understandable real life examples. For example, when learning about which hemisphere of the brain controls which side of the body, he used Psy, creator of Gangnam Style, to portray it. It was pretty funny, and I remembered it.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Be prepared to take notes in lecture and attend lecture daily.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would definitely recommend this course to those who have an interest in Psychology. The class is taught by three different professors who are experts in three different fields of Psychology. Because of this the class is able to provide a great introduction into Cognitive Psych, Developmental Psych, and Clinical Psych. The teachers keep everything very engaging and have use an array of different types of media during their lectures.

    Course highlights:

    My favorite part of this course was the first third where we focused on Cognitive Psychology. I particularly loved learning about how the brain functions, how perception is a process of construction, and how memory works. I also really enjoyed learning about Developmental Psychology and the age old question of nature vs. nurture. The Clinical Psychology part of the class was also very interesting. We learned about what causes stress and different ways of coping with it which was helpful to be learning about leading up to finals week.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    I would recommend going to section and doing the section homework because that helps to keep you on track and tells you where you are with the material. I would also say that making a bunch of flashcards for the tests is extremely helpful. Just purely making them is a great form of studying and really helped me out a lot on all three tests. There is one short scientific essay that is due at the end which is worth a good amount, it is a fairly easy paper but I would recommend not saving it till the last minute.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Prof. Ben Storm thoroughly explains cognition and the human brain using examples and detailed lecture slides. He is a memorable professor who clearly has a passion for Cognition.

    Course highlights:

    The brain is an intricate organ with many processes going on unconsciously. I like the idea of the brain studying the brain, and trying to understand itself.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    In order to successfully achieve this course, one should be attentive and actively listen during lectures. Go over your notes after class, and apply the concepts learned to your every day life and/or conversations.
