    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Mickey Fisher is more than an optimal professor, he not only teaches students in a way that is translatable, but he involves in dialogue as well. He stresses the concept of learning and does not base grades solely on test scores and assignments. Instead, Professor Fisher incorporates the important progress that a student makes throughout the semester learning about the subject. Overall, Professor Fisher is a wonderful person and commemorates students in their work, is constantly supportive, and strives not only to teach but to learn as well.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights of this course involved the notions of psychology that were challenged to my own way of thinking. You learn about more than just general psychology in this course, you learn about your personal psychological state.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    You must always enter this course with an open-mind yet ready to challenge ideas that come your way.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Mickey Fisher is a fine example of a great teacher. He understands how to regulate the flow of information, so as to best help students understand new concepts. He has a fun and engaging personality, and maintains a sense of interest in the topic. The course explores the variety and limits of human learning and understanding, in that it is an introspective into the human brain to see how we process information. By applying these ideas, we can better understand how humans interact and mediate information to each other.

    Course highlights:

    One of the highlights was the fact that we were looking at the history of psychological study, as and contrasting it with new and cutting edge information. we discussed information that had been released to the scientific community the same week. By observing the discoveries of the relatively new field of neuroscience, we were able to further augment our class discussions. The teacher used the information to further reflect on the implications of these finding in philosophy and the nature of human existence. Altogether, it was one of the best class experiences that I have yet had the privilege to experience.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    I took this class alongside a Human Development class, and the two complemented each other very well. I was able to cross-reference the information of both classes to bring in a different perspective to the discussion.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course because it will give students a new outlook on life. It will also provide them with skills they will be able to use in the rest of their academic career as well as the real world.

    Course highlights:

    One highlight of this class was getting to trick a student from another class into a psychological experiment. The course was very interactive, interesting, and will surely engage any type of student, while leaving them with fundamental knowledge on the psychological world.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Come into the class with an open mind, an eager soul, and having done your reading. You will not be let down by this course, it will push you to new limits and give you a new perspective on life.
