    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This course is extraordinarily interesting and fun! It is a class that I always enjoy going to, and I always learn things that I can apply to my own and other's lives.

    Course highlights:

    I learned a lot about people and how and why they behave the way they do. We viewed many different theories, so you can learn everyone's perspective.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Do the readings, and distribute your studying over time.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This course was one of my favorites! Definitely read the book for exam info, but Wells and Hesling were amazing instructors. Their use of humor and media makes learning much more interesting.

    Course highlights:

    I’m already aware of social psychology, but we did get to learn interesting things about cults and crime. I found those two topics to be the most interesting to learn about.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    Read the book! I hardly ever read, but the social psych is an interesting read. Take the lecture notes as well!

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I learned a lot in this class and I am not just saying that! I used to text my best friend interesting things I would learn throughout lecture all the time and now she is enrolled to take this class this coming semester!

    Course highlights:

    Gary Wells is a big deal in the psychology world, let me tell you. He was even on an episode of 60 Minutes that we got to watch in class. Although I took this class almost a year ago, I can still apply some of the things I learned in the real world. It is really crazy to me how in some of my other classes I learn about things I already covered in this one, such as the elaboration likelihood model (ELM), which was covered again in one of my Advertising classes (my major).

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    You need to attend class in order to succeed, or if you want a good grade. Also, do the readings!!!! In class we were asked clicker questions (we got rid of clickers now so I am not sure what the new technique is) based on the readings and previous class material. These two questions, one point each, were basically make or break on how well you did in the class. Getting 1/2 every time might seem decent, but at the end of the semester it could really decide your grade or not!
