    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Professor Gerrig was someone who loved what he taught and it could be seen in the way he interacted with his students. Through all his years of teaching he has never missed a class.

    Course highlights:

    Learning about the human brain and why we do certain things was very interesting. Also the final was not cumulative.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Go to every class and read the textbook.

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    Definitely would recommend Prof. Franklin, she's a great lecturer and it's a very interesting intro course! I wouldn't say it's a hard class, as long as you read the textbook.

    Course highlights:

    The psychology concepts I learned were very interesting. Prof Franklin also tries to make the lecture somewhat interactive at times. We also watched many TedTalk videos at the end of lecture, which were always pretty interesting.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    Read the textbook! Her tests have some questions that are mentioned in the textbook and are not covered in lecture. If you want to do well on the midterms and final, read everything because some of the questions are very specific.
