    | Would highly recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course because you really get to learn and understand the psychological development behind infants and young children. Most people (at least those who have majored in psychology), know about the Freud's psychosexual stages and the developmental stages from Erikson's theory and from Piaget, but there is more to the brain than those stages. This class taught me a lot about the behavior of young children and also allows for class discussions about topics such as child vaccinations, pro-choice vs. pro-life, and other controversial topics in which all students were able to openly voice their opinions about them.

    Course highlights:

    My professor never called out on people, and when it came time for class discussions on articles assigned in class, there was an easygoing vibe about the classroom where you never felt the pressure to speak out when you did not want to, and at the same time it was very fun to be in the conversations. He was very whimsical and always answered any questions people had in lecture on concepts that were found to be confusing. Though he was an adjunct professor that was usually off-campus teaching at another college, he made time for students who had questions not asked during lecture. The lectures were the best part of lecture to me, because it was awesome to hear people's different opinions on certain subjects involving parenthood, children's education, etc. without being boring or involving any harsh judgement from anyone. I learned a lot and became more open-minded about different topics such as stem cell research, home-schooling, and other topics.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    The only advice I would give to students considering this course is to pay attention in class and really get involved in the discussions. There was a textbook recommended for the course, and it is good to refer back to it in order to best understand the material, but if you are active in class discussions, then you can get the main ideas of the topics discussed in class and help prepare yourself for the exams, which were pretty easy. Professor Burinskas always talked about what was going to be on the test and he did count class participation into your grade, so this is another reason for participating in class every chance you get. You will find this class to actually be very interesting and getting into class discussions very invigorating, even if you don't like to speak out much in lecture and are very shy, (like I am), the class is very easy-going and you will get a good grade if you put in the effort.

    | No strong feelings either way.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    It is an interesting class and subject matter. Babies are a lot more complex than we think.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights were the subject itself. I learned about babies mental and physical development and how that affects their future

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    STUDY HARD!!!! Make sure to take good notes, and read the textbook too for test.
