    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    I think that this rudimentary understanding of a huge population that surrounds us should be required of all university students. It's a fairly easy class, but everything taught is interesting and enlightening.

    Course highlights:

    I loved everything about this course. We learned the basic science of addiction, analyzed the public's view of addiction and mental illness--which frequently coincide--and rethought our own views and opinions based on a new understanding of addiction, recovery, and treatment.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    A student must go to class and read the book to receive a good grade. Beyond the grade, however, this class is best approached with an open mind. Learn as much as you can in this unique environment.

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    It's such an interesting class! It's the intro class to the minor. His class is pretty casual but so full of information. I didn't take a lot of notes since he mostly lectured rather than relying on power points, but we also watched a lot of videos. When I took the class, I never missed it. He did take attendance at give quizzes at random times so always show up. If you have problems with anything, he's very easy to talk to so don't be afraid to ask for help if you need it! Read the book. It isn't a hard read and is very informative. It's also what most of the quizzes are based off. There was one midterm if I remember correctly and then the final. The class is not boring at all. It keeps you engaged since Daniel walks around the whole time and he's very enthusiastic about the subject. He's by far my favorite professor in school so far as well as my favorite class. This class is actually what made me go for the minor!

    Course highlights:

    My favorite part of the class was the abstinence project. For 9 weeks you choose something to give up and write and experience paper on it. I learned a lot about myself doing it so you will too if you take the project seriously. It's by no means hard, but you won't get anything out of it if you fake it.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    Just show up to class honestly. I'll be the first person to say I'll skip class if I feel I don't need it, but this one was completely different. Also the biggest thing is to speak up. I didn't because I was always afraid to. He loves when people participate and it makes the class more fun!

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This course allows students to understand the issues with substance abuse today and how complex of a problem it can be. Many people have misconceptions about people with substance use disorders and this course clarifies many of those misconceptions and can be eye-opening.

    Course highlights:

    I learned that substance abuse disorders affect a lot more people than I thought and anyone of any age, race, or religion can have one. This course is engaging and can really impact student's perceptions of substance abuse if they immerse themselves in the class.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    You should make sure to stay on track with the assigned readings and always go to lecture. It's an interesting class and it's really worth going to. You can learn a lot about substance abuse and general awareness.
