    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Throughout this course, I learned about the human brain, human eye sight, how different psychologists' work and theories compare to real life situations, etc.

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Do all the homework and quizzes and turn it in on-time because that is where most of your points come from.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend General Psychology because it is a pre-requisite for many majors, but also is great background knowledge for students to have, and is applicable to lots of real-life scenarios

    Course highlights:

    You learn about the major psychologists in history and what their contribution to psychology was. You also get to do small, in-class experiments with your classmates which really enriches the learning.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    - read the book - take good notes during lecture - make flashcards to prepare for tests

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Jennifer Ackil is a very good professor and teaches the subject very well. She makes it interesting and you can tell that she is also very interested in the subject as well. It is a great course to take even if you are not majoring in Psychology.

    Course highlights:

    I learned a lot in this course. Some of my favorite parts were when we learned about people's dreams. Also I like to learn about the brain and we got to see some different brains in her class.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    The best tip I can give to a student considering this course is to study over a long time and not just three days. Make note cards throughout the couple weeks before the test.
