    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    This class was extremely interesting as it focused on theories of personality. The class provided insight into a number of different psychologists' theories regarding why humans are they way they are. Nothing was presented as fact and much of the information presented in one theory would contradict another theory. However, it afforded the students an excellent opportunity for students to decide which psychologists and theories seemed to be the most applicable to any particular situation. The instructor did not tell the students what was right or wrong: the students were afforded that opportunity themselves.

    Course highlights:

    I was able to learn about many different psychologists and their theories of personality. The instructor was entertaining, however, he held the students to the highest expectations and would not allow anyone to slack. People who wanted to be there and work hard were often the ones succeeding in the course. I was a fan of the textbook as well because it included historical perspectives and biographies relating to each of the psychologists discussed.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    You must work hard in this course. It is not possible for you to succeed if you slack. The terminology used throughout the course is extremely scientific and neither the book or the professor explain concepts in simpler terms. You will have to do a lot of research on your own in order to understand the content, but the content is so interesting it does not seem like work in the slightest.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course because it teaches you a lot about each psychologist. Rather than learning a little bit of information about a few psychologists like most psychology classes, this class gets very in-depth about a variety of different psychologists. Each chapter focuses on a single psychologists and tells you all about their theories. The professor also makes this class more interesting by the way he teaches. He assigns weekly quizzes that you have five tries to get a ten out of ten so it is easy to get a lot of points. As long as you study hard for the tests, you'll get a good grade in the class.

    Course highlights:

    This course taught me a lot about many different psychologists. Other psychology classes I've taken have only briefly talked about them, and they have only talked about the main ones such as Erikson and Freud. It was interesting getting to learn what other psychologists there were and what their accomplishments were.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    The main advice I would give to someone who is considering taking this class is to study a ton for the exams. There is a lot of material that you have to know for each exam. It is crucial to study your notes and read the chapters in order to do well on the exams.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This class was so interesting and every single thing we learned about, you could relate to! Which made it super fun to learn and easy to remember!

    Course highlights:

    My favorite part about taking this course was talking about old people and centennials. I thought it was so interesting learning about how people age and the diseases you could get as you grow old.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    This class is super easy, as long as you GO TO CLASS.
