    Course Overview:

    My major isn't psychology, but I loved this class, especially because of the professor. She didn't just simply read the PowerPoint to us, but she thoroughly explained each concept. She didn't move on until asking "does that make sense?" and making sure no one was confused. The first couple of chapters are a bit boring and difficult, but she still managed to make it interesting. She always had stories to tell us that helped us to understand the material better. She definitely got a lot of people interested, because it seemed that everyone asked questions beyond what we were learning. Meaning, people were really thinking about the information and were interested to know more about the topic, and the teacher was more than happy to help us out. If she didn't know an answer to the question right away, she told the students to email her and she would find out the answer for them. Overall, the class will really make students think and feel excited to go to class. It wasn't an easy class, but I would most definitely take it again if I could.

    Course highlights:

    I think the best thing about this class was that it was relatable. Many people might automatically think of learning about mental illnesses when they think of a psychology class, but that's only part of it. We learn more about ourselves, how we operate, and why we do certain things. During almost every class, I, and I'm sure many others, thought, "That's so cool, I didn't know that!". Even the two essays we wrote were kind of fun to write. They definitely involved a lot of thought, but because much of the information is so relatable, that always makes essays easier and less stressful to get done.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    When you go to class, just listen and ask questions. Don't worry about taking notes unless she gives information that isn't in the book or on the PowerPoint. She will do that occasionally and have this information on the test, but not excessively. She posts the PowerPoints on BlackBoard, so you don't have to worry about writing everything down. Try to read the assigned chapter before class, but if you don't have time, at least make sure you set aside a couple hours to slowly read and try to understand the chapter before taking the quiz. She will assign short quizzes on BlackBoard just to make sure you're reading the textbook, but they are easy as long as you read. You really do need to read the textbook in order to do well on the exams, you can't solely rely on the lectures. The chapters are fairly long and contain a lot of information, but she will clarify and help you understand a lot of this information in class (which is why it's good to read it before class if you have time). Everyone's study habits are different, so I can't say exactly how students should study, but for me personally, I just really tried to focus in class and ask questions if I needed to, read the chapters early on, and re-read the chapters before the test (or at least skimmed them). If I just could not remember a certain concept or definition, I wrote it down several times until I remembered it more. If doing these things is what you normally do to study, then you will have no problem doing well in this class.
