    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I really enjoyed the class because of my professor. He really had a passion for teaching and you could tell that he loved what he was teaching. This made it easy and enjoyable to learn.

    Course highlights:

    I learned many of the beginning aspects of Psychology. We discussed the many different parts of the brain and human behavior. We learned about many psychological studies that have been done on a variety of subjects.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Taking notes is a really big deal. They will help you so much later on in the course. It is really helpful to read your notes every evening. It helps you to remember what you learned that day in class and it really helps with studying for tests.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    This was my first psychology course and it is what really got me interested in psychology. The teacher helped a ton! Mr. Richey kept the entire class engaged with hands-on and group learning. He was always bringing props and things to help teach.

    Course highlights:

    I absolutely loved learning about how we process memory in the brain. It fascinated me.

    Hours per week:

    12+ hours

    Advice for students:

    You can NEVER study too much! The studying pays off though, I promise!

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Overall I would say that this class is manageable. The professor, Heather Willard, is easy to talk to when you have questions or need help. She doesn't accept any late work, so if you aren't someone who does your work on time then I wouldn't recommend this class for you. She did drop our lowest grades, which was very helpful and nice to do. However, I took this class online through distance learning and it was a very heavy workload each and every week. I would not pair this class up with many other classes you are expecting to have a heavy workload in. The book isn't really necessary, as all the notes are online. I used the online notes, which were more condensed and had all the same info as the book.

    Course highlights:

    I learned a lot about myself and how the human mind works. During the beginning of the course we learned some of the anatomy of the brain and what each part does, which was interesting. That later linked in with the rest of what we learned. You learn a lot about how certain pictures or things trick the mind. We also learned about mental disorders and about memory.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Be ready to do work. And a lot of it. I'm not sure how much work the actual class at the campus includes, but the online course load was heavy. Expect three assignments each week. A writing assignment, which is answering questions in paragraph form. A reading quiz, usually 10 to 20 questions. And a discussion forum that also requires you respond to three other classmates.
