If you've never taken any evolution courses before, this is a great introduction. Suddendorf covers a wide range of human abilities and critically analyses existing literature. I found that sometimes he can be overly critical of non-human animals lacking an ability, but this contrasts with some pop psych literature out there and is probably overdue. He takes a comparative psychology approach, which is different to some other evolutionary psychology approaches. The exam was relatively easy, and the presentation was easy.

I found this a very interesting course! The lecturer is very engaging and enjoyable, with plenty of explanations of his own research, as well as visual aids (such as hominin skulls). I also found tutors (or mine at least) to be very easy to talk to and clearly expressed a deep interest in the topic, which I find makes learning easier. Anyone with an interest in comparative, developmental, or evolutionary psychology will likely enjoy this course. There is a large amount of freedom over the essay, which I found very enjoyable, but the exam is fairly challenging with a broad range of topics, although the preparation material makes this much easier.
