    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Emily Shaffer is a fantastic teacher who genuinely cares about her students. There is a bit of work; you must read the chapter before class and write a small paper on an assigned topic but five of the lowest homework grades are dropped. The tests are multiple choice, there are four throughout the semester (including the final), all graded equally and the lowest score isn't counted in the final grade.

    Course highlights:

    I gained a strong understanding of the basics of psychology. We learned about the history of psychology, got a basic understanding of neurology, and studied mental illnesses and their treatments.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    Emily is always there to help you. Don't be afraid to talk to her as she is extremely friendly. Go above and beyond on the homework assignments and your grade will reflect that. Study for the tests because they are challenging if you don't prepare enough.

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    This was an absolutely wonderful class. The course is organized very well and you are exposed to a whole slew of information. Through taking this course, I realized that I wanted to major in psychology. I have found that a lot of the basic information we learned in this class will be referenced later.

    Course highlights:

    We seemed to touch on the basics of many fields of psych from diseases of the brain to general disorders to who this or that big name in psychology was. It is a lot of information, but it is taught well and thoroughly. The professor also provides a lot of personal anecdotes to help students understand.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    The professor provides an outline of what she would go over in class and on it is the basic information you need to know, however she provides a lot more information in her lectures than just facts. I printed out the outline and took notes in the margins while she was lecturing and those notes really solidified the lessons for me. You don't really need the textbook, but I did need to use it once or twice for information that she said we would need to know on the study guide, but didn't get around to in class. This professor does provide a study guide for tests, but don't get used to it, she is simply amazing.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Great intro course that satisfies core requirements. Pretty easy but relatively interesting, and Rollins will have you laughing half the class. Tests can be a little tricky- she is a fan of trick questions- but if you go to office hours she is helpful.

    Course highlights:

    Lots of random info that actual comes in handy at odd moments when you need to pull odd facts out of thin air.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    Even though the course is easy, make sure you put in a little work to study before the tests!
