Lindemann, Patricia
[PSYC W1001] Science of Psychology

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

I think this is a great class. I mean, Patty obviously loves her subject, and definitely does a good job of projecting that love to the students. There is a TON of reading from the textbook as well as outside articles in this course. It is very difficult to keep up sometimes, but it is all very interesting. My main complaint is that although there is an agonizing overlap between lectures and readings as far as material, there is just enough that are specific to each that makes it necessary to do both. Tricia is a very funny professor and I recommend it for anyone interested in psychology. It is a very stimulating and fun course.

Workload:

I definitely spent more time on this class than any other. However, the workload is light. Three two page article responses and three tests. That's it.
