    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course because there is so much all individuals should know about the ways our brain functions! This course is a great introduction course to take, and you get to learn so much about the history of psychology and what is and isn't accepted in this field, when it comes to experimenting on patient's.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights of this course included learning about a topic that was of interest to me, especially the experiments that have been done throughout time, and learning more about the brain and the ways individuals function. Another highlight was having a professor who was very knowledgeable in the field and all of the material we learned, teach us. I learned a lot about experiments that have been done throughout history, what is ethical and not ethical in this field of study, and the ways that the brain functions.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Come prepared, ready to learn, and to have fun while learning! Do all you can to get the points that are given, all points matter! Make the most out of a very interesting course! Pay attention to the experiments and critically evaluate them! Lastly, enjoy, Psychology is truly a course like no other!

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Mr. Ewing teaches the fundamentals of psychology through discussion and open-ended questions instead of monotonous worksheets and presentations. When I walk into his room, I instantly feel more "scholarly" due to the aura that he and his teaching style exudes.

    Course highlights:

    Not only did I learn a ton about psychology and the human brain, but I also learned life lessons! I learned how to study more efficiently, how to train myself to stay focused, and I learned mental tips and tricks to communicate more effectively and solidify learned information in my brain. Mr. Ewing is not only a great teacher and an excellent and educated scholar, but he is also a kind and compassionate and wise individual with so many pieces of life advice to give younger students!

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    DO YOUR READINGS. Never slack off on your readings! They are vital to understanding the information taught in class, as Ewing goes over things pretty quickly.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    PSYC-101, The Introduction to Sociology, gives the student an overview of how the mind works, is conditioned, and it even tackles the mental illnesses observed today in the Society. It may not tell you all about how to read a mind of a person, but it can classify explain a person's behavior and personality.

    Course highlights:

    Making your own behavior modification project was the highlight of the course. It allows you to assess certain behaviors that you would like to change, improve, add, or delete from your daily works. Through a systematized manner, you will be able to monitor your behavior, apply concepts from the course to change or improve your behavior, and set conditions, reinforcements, and punishments to achieve your goals. It is also the "final paper" or project for that course.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Participate and don't be afraid to ask questions because learning about yourself is not only very informative but fun as well!
