    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    The class was a lot of fun and very engaging. It was fascinating to learn about the different concepts that touch pretty much every aspect of human life. Furthermore, I felt like I understood myself and my behaviors a lot more after the course.

    Course highlights:

    For me, the highlights of the course were the lectures. The professor was very passionate and he knew how to make the class engaging. There was a perfect balance of direct lecture contact, hilarious but relevant videos, group discussions and interactive activities. I learned so much about social cognition and prosocial behavior, which ties into the classes I am taking this semester (so PSYC 001 was very handy!). Perhaps the concept I took away the most from PSYC 001 was cognitive dissonance, which is a term used when individuals experience inconsistent thoughts and actions. This concept appeared a lot throughout the course, and I don't think I'll forget about it anytime soon (which frankly, I don't mind!).

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Make sure to do the assigned readings--I had a habit of skimping on readings when I didn't have time, which turned out to be problematic considering some material on the tests included information from lectures AND readings. I would also study any diagrams the professor hands out because those are also fair game on tests. Lastly, don't depended on his recorded lectures because: A, you lose the benefit of asking the professor questions directly in class, and B, his lectures are so much fun! Professor Ward is undoubtedly enthusiastic about social psychology, which makes the rest of the class just as excited to learn--it's a really great atmosphere to experience!
