    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    This is an intro to Social Psych class. Its a lecture class so the teacher provides most the material you need to learn in class. There are 5 main exams and the teacher drops the lowest grade at the end of the course. This class has an online component with LearnSmart Assignments. You have to buy the textbook's online access to do these assignments. There is an chapter assignment due every week on friday. The exams usually includes 2-3 chapters we cover in class. She is very strict with tardiness, we use iClicker so she will know if you come late. iClicker is also used to determine participation. You are not graded on the correctness of your answers, only if you have answered 3/4 of the iClicker questions she asks for each class. There is no homework for this class, and every few weeks we have a short group assignment where you discuss a topic and are expected to submit an entry about that discussion online due two days later.

    Course highlights:

    You learn a lot about society and yourself, and it's very easy to apply what you learn to your own life. I really enjoyed this course, she is a great teacher, and has a great attitude. She strives to make this course fun and sometimes includes videos into the teacher to make it more interested. I would definitely take other courses with her again.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Make sure to always read before class. It will make it much easier to understand the lecture. It's recommended you bring a laptop to class to take notes, but its not required. Most student take hand notes. Come to class early because seats fill up in the front. Ask questions, she likes when students interact and provide their own ideas into the lecture. The LearnSmart Assignments are easy grades, they are graded on completion not accuracy and are a great way to get an A and help balance your grades should you not do as well on the exams.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course because it helps you understand the social world around you. The professor presented great examples and helped me analyze action I took for granted before.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights of this course were the different kinds of biases we learned. It included confirmation bias, hindsight bias, and fundamental attribution bias. These stick out to me because it surprised me on how actively powerful our unconscious mind is. There are certain things our mind just jumps ahead to, without giving much thought.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    I advise students to attend class every day. I believe its important to listen carefully to his examples instead of spending too much time writing notes. Complete his study guides! They helped me study the content deeper. Students should also take advantage of the Professor's office hours to ask questions and gain a better understanding of the content.

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    I would completely recommmend, Dr. Charmand makes his lectures about the beauty and logic behind social psychology that intrigues you and keeps you want to hear more.

    Course highlights:

    The sections about famous research done on compliance to explain Nazi behavior.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Just paying attention in class will be all the studying you really need.
