    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I absolutely love Amy! She has a passion for her work and that's all I can ask for. She was extremely helpful and was very understanding. She didn't require a book which is helpful for those who need help in the financial aspect of college. This class was at 8:40 in the morning and it made me excited to get out of bed in the morning!

    Course highlights:

    I will be honest, most courses are cram sessions. I do what I have to do to get a decent grade and remember none of the information I was taught. This course was different. Amy took us on a journey through the lifespan from conception to death. And I still remember that Erikson called the final crisis of life integrity vs. despair and that during this time we question our identities and our purpose for the second time in the lifespan, the first being during adolescence. This class was my favorite.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    First of all, come to class. Amy posts her information online, but being in class helps make a real connection to the material. Also she loves hearing the students opinions, no one is wrong. Secondly, do the homework. Once a week a one page "paper" is due and it is very easy, but homework is work a good chunk of your grade. Finally, the exams are tough but fair. Amy gives you a study guide a couple days before, use it. Ask questions if you aren't sure of the answers it helps a ton.

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    It's a great and simple psychology class that I have enjoyed a lot. It teaches us the development of human behavior from being conception to death. Also things like Nature v. Nurture.

    Course highlights:

    I've learned a lot in this class. A lot of the major theoretical perspectives that are used in lifespan development like behavioral, cognitive, humanistic, psychodynamic, etc will be taught. There are a lot of teachings about the different psychodynamic, behavioral, and cognitive perspectives of Psychologists like Sigmund Freud, Erik Erikson, John B. Watson, and more! Also, simple things like how our brain grows, how children learn certain behaviors - would that be nature or nurture? All in all, it was a very intriguing and interesting class!

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Reading the required textbook and taking personal notes along with copying the professor's notes. Textbook is also an easy and a quick to read. Nothing too difficult.
