Galanter, Eugene
[PSYC W1001] Science of Psychology

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

Eugene may be a little nutty sometimes, but his charm and wit make his class worth tolerating all of his idiosyncrasies. He firmly asserts that for $38,000 per annum, one ought to get more from a class than a reiteration of the text. Indeed, Galanter will give you great stories, bad jokes, and some insights into the science of psychology. In the end, if you need an intro psych class or a science credit, this is the way to go. Galanter is, at the very least, a fun old fart.

Workload:

The quizzes (3) are cake. If you bomb this stuff, you're either incredibly lazy (in which case it's your own damn fault) or an idiot (in which case I humbly ask that you leave CU).
