    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    This course is very helpful in determining what you wish to do with your degree after graduation, not to mention the professor is very helpful in assisting the students in finding a site that suits the psychology in the community requirement. Of many professors, Professor Hurley is always accessible and willing to help his students, so for anyone that is looking for a method of internship, or even a few additional upper level courses to fulfill their requirements, this is a great course to take, especially in the summertime. I strongly recommend taking this and PSYC327 in the same semester for additional credits.

    Course highlights:

    Some of the highlights of this course, to me, was that you got to hear other students' feedback about their community site and how things were panning out for them. You had students that were interested in the same avenues as others, some that were interested in different avenues, and it was eye-opening to see the differences between community sites, whether or not the students' had the same career goals. Through taking this course I learned my limits within my field, and if I could see myself in this career for a long time. Being in the community site for a long period of time was very resourceful in answering the questions of do you like/dislike the work environment, do you like/dislike your duties, and things that you would not be able to fully answer if you did not have the experience.

    Hours per week:

    12+ hours

    Advice for students:

    When you are at your community site, you need to be mindful that a huge portion of your grade is dependent on how your co-workers and supervisors view your work ethic at the site. If you are not taking your position seriously, or if you are not fully invested, then you may not get a good evaluation from your superiors (which is included in the final project of the class). Keep up with the daily work log and always be sure to fulfill the discussion board and reflection requirements of the course sooner rather than later; if you find that you are ever at a loss or having difficulties, always reach out to another student or to Professor Hurley himself.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Because you get to do an internship/ Volunteer and learn so much within the field of you study. You also get to learn some things you may not like about working in a certain field .

    Course highlights:

    working in a field you want to do as a career, team work, setting goals and meeting them

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Dont take a lot of other courses, because though you are doing in an internship/ or volunteering , it is kind of like working and other than interning you also have to do online discussions and 2 different papers, and attend class meetings every few month with the professor .So don't overwhelm yourself . Maybe take this course for summer if you can!
