[G4695] Psychology of Close Relationships

Please keep in mind that this review is more than 5 years old.

I really enjoyed this class, both because of the intense nature of our weekly discussions and the gentle but firm guidance of Professor Rafaeli. I went to his office hours quite a few times during the semester, sometimes to talk about the class material and sometimes to discuss the final paper (a 10-15 page proposal for a psych experiment), and found him to be patient and warm. During class, he struck a good balance between shaping the discussion and letting our individual voices come to the fore. My favorite part of the class (aside from the great readings, many penned by him) was the fact that each student served as the discussion leader during one class, so that each week's class seemed fresh and new.

Workload:

weekly (1-page) response papers, draft proposal midway through the semester, final proposal (10-15 pages, double-spaced), weekly reading (4-5 articles/papers, each 15-20 pages long — being science papers, were highly skim-able)
