    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    It gives an insight into how people "tick" and gives a detailed outline of the concept in a fashion that is simple and could be understood by anyone. The course emphasized social interaction in the class through discussion and other means of participation.

    Course highlights:

    I gained a new perspective as to how things work in the field of psychology and peaked my interest to want to learn even more! The most notable highlights throughout the semester was the sense of community within the classroom as well as the study skills I learned as a result of taking the class.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    Make sure to get your assignments done ahead of time, so you have time for other classes if needed. The textbook is essential to progressing through the class, without it, falling behind may become more likely. Do not be afraid to ask questions to promote a discussion in a safe environment.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Mr Ewing is a fantastic teacher who makes sure to keep the class engaged each class. He takes pride in his work as a professor.

    Course highlights:

    The best part about this course would be the project towards the end of the semester where you are assignment a broad topic and you and your group will take it and run with it wherever you would like. It will be a formal presentation and it was my favorite because it allowed for the students to be creative and be entertained while learning and putting together the presentation and essays.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Involve yourself in the classroom discussions because they will be your biggest help during tests, and take notes as needed.

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    It was a very enlightening course, yet it was not stressful on top of my other classes. There was a lot about the human mind that I never knew before, and overall, learning psychology even a little bit helps with learning how to understand others, whether it be in the workplace or day-to-day life.

    Course highlights:

    Learning about why people think the way they do. I was able to retain some sort of empathetic demeanor for others, as I felt more open minded to the point that I could reason about why a person acts the way they do. Many people deserve chances and simply do not get them, which is one thing I felt was important to learn in this course.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Read. The. Textbook! Don't just skim through it. Make sure you take notes, and pull out that handy-dandy highlighter. Watch documentaries online about the subject that can help direct your focus and capture your interest if you are having issues sitting down and getting your work done. Ask the professor for any help, because they are more than happy to do so.
