    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    The professor is absolutely amazing in his field. He makes learning the material fun and interesting. There were options for reading requirements, and all the options were not only enjoyable to read, but they had great examples of the material learned in class. His exams were easy, as long as you pay attention.

    Course highlights:

    Two highlights from the course were his book assignments, in which you have to analyze a disorder in the character of the book, and the videos he shared of characters in therapy. Often, videos are boring and uninformative, but these videos gave a great insight on what people truly behave like with diagnose-able disorders.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Always go to class!! It is very hard to keep up if you miss out on a day of notes. And take notes! There's no way you can pass without them, but he expresses the answers to the exam very clearly during his lectures.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course. My professor is very objective in his approach. This way key to my enjoyment in this class. Before we went into the DSM and discussed the specific disorders and diagnosis', the professor covered a general overview on psychological theories. His approach is to find the most ethical way to treat each individual patient and each disorder on a case by case basis. There is no one-size-fits-all treatment plan. It's helpful to be observant, as the assignments for this course include watching movies and shows and being able to point out the symptoms being displayed in order to form a differential diagnosis. This class was extremely interesting.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights for me were the assignments. I enjoyed pouring over the DSM to find a differential treatment and cover every base so that I knew I was providing an accurate diagnosis for our assignment. It was also interesting to learn about the different disorders and how they are exhibited in a person's behaviors or thoughts.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    It is a lot of reading. Do not skimp out on reading the DSM and fully watching the assigned movies. Symptoms displayed are so important rather than reading a movie summary.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Mrs. Kesler is extremely passionate about psychology and makes the class a lot of fun. Lot's of class debates and talks. If you're not a psych major, it's still very interesting.

    Course highlights:

    Psychology gives you an insight to the people all around you. What I learned can't be fit into one box.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Pay attention in class! Power points and tests are very similar.
