    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This course covered the biological side of psychology and was very interesting. I learned a lot about how brain chemistry works and how there is more to psychology than learning and training Pavlov style. There are actual physical attributes to our brains that affect the way our brains work and think.

    Course highlights:

    I think the most interesting thing I learned was about how schizophrenia actually makes your brain look different, like there are holes in it.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    This course will require work, and the subject matter is more along the scientific side of this "soft science" but if you pay attention, you will find it to be very informative.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    Not only does this professor knows the subject, but the information given about the biology of the brain is exciting. So many topics that people aren't aware of, but are done daily between their thoughts or actions. If you like psychology and you think the brain is amazing then you'll enjoy the course and be passionate in learning it.

    Course highlights:

    I must say that when it comes to learning the material very well I have to dedicate extra time than usual. However, although it is tough to memorize and have hand written test I believe that is the only way to learn the material well. This course was all about knowing it by teaching it. All quizzes and test were short answers with basic explanations that made sense. Out of all the topics discussed in class the topic most fascinating to me was learning the neural processes involved in emotional expression, mental experiences, communication, learning behavior, and disorders.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Create index cards or learn how to teach the material in your own words in order to As your test and quizzes.
