    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Professor Evans is by far one of my favorite professors at Vincennes University. He keeps the class fun and engaging, all while managing to teach at the same time. Don't let his laid back personality fool you though; expect to work hard in his class. Abnormal Psychology was one of the more rewarding courses I've taken.

    Course highlights:

    In this class we learned about various disorders in the DSM. One of the big highlights was being able to tour a mental institution, which was quite an enlightening experience. One of the best things about this class was the open discussion that took place between all of the student. Here, we could openly voice opinions without being attacked. But for me personally, my favorite part about this class was the ten page paper we were required to write at the end of the semester. I love to write, and researching my topic was a fun an educational experience for me.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Engage in class discussion as much as possible, you learn more by participating in class than you do by taking notes (although notes are helpful too). Don't be afraid to ask questions and make sure you don't procrastinate on your final paper; ten pages is a lot!

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I loved this course! It was incredibly interesting to learn about disorders and how they work! The pace for a summer course was relatively easygoing. The textbook, though the only resource used, was thorough and not at all dull.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights of the course for me were when I read about schizophrenia and ethics set by the American Psychological Association. I learned about several disorders, including eating disorders, personality disorders, bipolar and depressive disorders, and many others. No matter what, they all manifest differently in people, which is highly intriguing to me.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    It was not too difficult. Really, it just requires paying attention while you read, which can sometimes be a challenge depending on where you are. I recommend finding a spot where it is quiet and you will not be disturbed. After that, you really only have to take a test for that chapter, and there is plenty of time to check your answers in the book, which is perfectly allowed so long as you are within the time constraints of the test itself.
