    | No strong feelings either way.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    It was an interesting course. I don't feel like I learned a lot but it managed to keep me interested. A lot of the course content was an extension of what you learn in intro to psych or your prerequisite psych class.

    Course highlights:

    Virtual Child was fun. Much of the course is applying what you have learned to realistic/practical situations.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Skim over the textbook. Know APA citation.

    | Would highly recommend.

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    I would highly recommend this class to anyone. I personally am pursuing Social Work and Psychology, so I may be more interested in this class than the average student, but the overall experience was amazing for me. My professor is a big believer of not cramming your brain full of information to take tests, and then just forget it. She really focuses on group work and slideshows to teach us what she feels is most important.

    Course highlights:

    I gained a plethora of knowledge from this course. I have always been interested in psychology, so I already had a lot of knowledge from my own research; but this course offered me more than I could've imagined. We learned the development of a human starting from infancy. This class teaches you not only what happens and what is important for children, but why.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    We didn't have to study very much for this class. For me, this class came naturally and I retained the information without studying. However, this professor doesn't believe in cramming for tests or finals. Rather, teaching information and utilizing it in projects or group discussions. Our mid term was only 27 questions and we were able to use our book. Our final is just a reflection on the class itself, and what we feel we learned and how we can apply this to our daily lives. A lot of extra credit is offered as well.
