Lindemann, Patricia
[PSYC W1001] Science of Psychology

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

Prof. Lindemann knows her stuff and does as much as one can with a broad survey course like this. She certainly has an quirky sense of humour (don't most psychology professors) - it's indearing to some, not so much for others. Her classes are fairly well laid out although the powerpoint notes can be a little hard to follow at times. I recommend this class to anyone thinking of majoring in Psychology, it will give you a good foundational knowledge of the field.

Workload:

The course itself requires a lot of reading, mainly from the text book. Pick up a copy of Gray's Psychology and have a look through it if you want to get an idea. You will pretty much have to have read the whole thing by the end of semester. Apart from the reading the course work is not too intense, there are not a lot of tests and assignments.
