    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I strongly recommend this course to anyone who is even vaguely interested in psychology. You get to dive into and really break down topics that seem way too complex to understand. Concepts such as dreaming, the subconscious, the brain, and many more are deeply explored.

    Course highlights:

    One of my favorite units was the brain because you got to learn about all of the different parts and their functions. It was interesting to have a better understanding about the most complex organ in our bodies. I also enjoyed learning about the famous, and sometimes controversial, experiments that defined psychology.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    You need to be prepared to memorize a seemingly endless amount of terms and, as a result, I recommend making flashcards. There was a lot of outlining from the textbook and, despite how painful it was, it was very helpful in the end.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I find psychology fascinating so this class was already very exciting to take. Even students that do not want to be psychology majors enjoyed the class. It focused on the brain, the mind, the body and how all three work together to create a functional (and sometimes dysfunctional) organism. This class was heavy with vocabulary terms relating to anatomy and disorders. It was very easy to learn those terms because they could be applied to everyday life. It really gave me a full understanding of the mind and the brain and it really increased my love for psychology.

    Course highlights:

    I loved learning about psychological disorders and social psychology. We learned about the different disorders that can affect the mind, how they affect the mind, and how they can be treated. It was very interesting to see how every little thing in our bodies has a purpose, and if the smallest thing goes wrong, it can cause chaos. My other favorite unit was social psychology. We learned the meaning of certain body language, why people do what they do, and why people act a certain way. W studied the Holocaust and other genocides and analyzed why they could have occurred. It was very interesting.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Be ready to learn! It is a lot of work and sometimes I had to read 30 pages in the textbook, however, I am very glad I took this course. It really prepared me for my major and it was very interesting.

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    Mrs. Pruitt made psychology easy. While we were expected to complete outlining nightly (which is a common requirement in AP courses), she debriefed the information we had learned the previous night in the class the following day. She also made the class even more interesting than it already was by being engaging and sharing anecdotes with us. She was funny and sweet, certainly an amazing teacher. If you get the chance to be in her class, definitely do it.

    Course highlights:

    You learn a lot about the fundamentals of psychology including the perspectives, various psychological experiments, and abnormal psychology. Of course, you learn more than just those things, but that's just a brief snapshot of some of the things you would learn in either her class or Mr. Landry's.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Do your outlining. There's usually an outline quiz every following class. If you do your reading and study before tests, you should do just fine. If you have any questions about the material, know that Ms. Pruitt is one of the most approachable teachers there are, so you can always ask her and she'll be more than eager to help you.
