    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course to people because it provided me with insight about my own mind and psyche. For example, the Freudian Iceberg Theory gave me information about the my outer appearance and what I show "above the water," and what I conceal from society, like my insecurities, fears, secrets, and more. This section of the iceberg is "under the water" and takes up the majority of the mass of the iceberg.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights of this course include the teacher herself. Dr. Shpurik is a good teacher with a clear passion for the science of psychology. Although she utilized a faulty clicker session that lowered my grade, I appreciate her as a teacher because she showed me throughout the year that she wanted to teach us this content. She gave the students opportunities to raise their grades countless times, so I can't say that she isn't helpful.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Keep up with her modules that she gives online for homework. Her course can be challenging as it progresses, so stay up-to-date with them. These modules connect with her discussions of the following class.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course because it is highly educative, and very interesting to know how the mind works the way it does and what circumstances affect certain behaviors.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights of this course were the discussion boards since we were able to give our opinion, learn, and interact with others and their opinions as well!

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Read the chapters and watch the videos thoroughly.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Although I am a freshman in college, I am not new to the world of college work. I took AP Psychology as a Sophomore in high school and I absolutely loved it. It's one of the those classes that the content outweighs the work load and I believe it's because we can all relate to finding how the human brain works in its seemingly mysterious ways. I just couldn't help but be excited everyday for this class because there was always something new to learn about myself and even my peers.

    Course highlights:

    My favorite topics were mental illnesses and how we learn behaviors. Mental Illness was always a mystery to me so of course being finally able to comprehend such a strange concept was thrilling (not to mention the vast amount of videos and movies we got to watch). When it came to learned behaviors, I loved getting into the whole debate of Nature vs Nurture because both have such an impact but one can weigh more on others sometimes.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    It's a very interesting class, but you got to remember that as interesting as it is you can't slack off on studying at home. In each topic make sure to highlight the major scientists who developed the more popular theories and understand the ins and outs of the debates of why just one theory cannot be considered a law. Keep an open mind.
