    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    This class while it could have been a drag was fun. The class was simple and easy. The professor made it 10x more enjoyable. She was so friendly and willing to help with anyone inside or outside the classroom.

    Course highlights:

    You had basically 2 big assignments. A big essay, which was easy because the professor broke it down. And a reading assignment that you have to read a short section of a book and tell your classmates about it.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Do the readings, and take the notes in class. Ask questions, and even go to office hours if needed.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    The course gives a great overview of the topic of psychology as well as a easy and organized way of presenting the material. The course is divided into sections and a power point to go along with each section discussed in class. There are supplemental readings and papers to write but they are interesting readings about psychology studies.

    Course highlights:

    I learned the basics in psychology. Again this was a general overview so topics ranged from the history of psychology to learning about Autism Spectrum Disorder. So getting the overview helped me know I liked psychology.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Prepare to read the assigned readings, make sure to go to class to get the power point notes, and participate
