    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    I would definitely recommend this psychology course. The professor is incredibly generous about course material and regularly reviews topics discussed in the readings. She also has real world experience, since she used to work as a prison psychologist. Even when discussing the readings, she would help the students by giving examples of memorable cases that she experienced while in the prison.

    Course highlights:

    This course first discusses the specific perspectives in psychology, such as behavioral, cognitive, biological, psychodynamic, and humanistic. From there, the course begins to focus deeper into each one, such as how the behavioral chapter starts talking about different types of learning (operant conditioning , classical conditioning , and observational). Along with these perspectives, we start looking into neurons and their structure, areas of the brain and their importance, and drugs that assist in making up for deficits in the brain. Overall, the class was incredibly informative.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    I would recommend that, if you choose to take this course, you should speak up. She appreciates students who provide their own perspective and thoughts, rather than forcing her to talk for an hour and forty-five minutes without anyone else saying a word. Often times, the student would be open to talking about specific cases in their own families who may have schizophrenia, bipolar disorder, etc. In terms of study habits, write down and study all of the vocabulary words, since those are generally what the quizzes test you on. Professor Gordon generally gives 1-3 chapters to read per week, so be prepared to set aside time for studying. I generally try to leave a 3 hour gap for this so that I can finish all of the studying in one go, rather than taking breaks in between.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This was an excellent course into the study of psychology. I gained a great foundation and had fun while doing it. The material is so interesting that I was actively wanting to learn more and more so it wasn't even work.

    Course highlights:

    You learn about the different parts of the brain and their functions. Also some basic theories, studies, and methods used by and about their creators.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    It helps if you are actually interested in what you are being taught. You will definitely learn a lot of new things about your own mind and how it works. But pay attention! As an intro course, there is a lot of information to take in and remember so take good notes.
