    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    The course was intellectually stimulating and relevant to society today. It challenged preconceived notions about the intersection between law and psychology. The readings were relevant to the course and fit well with lectures. The topics covered in class where challenging and interesting. The class itself was structured with two exams, which covered both lectures and readings from the textbook. The lectures included powerpoints, videos, and journal articles.

    Course highlights:

    I gained an immense wealth of knowledge in regards to how psychology affects the discipline of law. The highlights of this course were definitely case studies that were reviewed during class, such as Andrea Yates case. It was a challenging course in that it was not simply memorization of straight forward tasks. Professor Wixted also challenged us with higher level thinking by introducing ROC curves and challenging our preconceived notions about accuracy of eyewitness testimony, photo line-ups, and the insanity plea.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    I would encourage them to read the textbook when it is assigned to supplement learning from lecture. I would also encourage them to attend office hours, ask questions about topics that might seem confusing, and to take notes. Something that helped me was creating flashcards to study facts such as laboratory experiments, statistics, and cases.
