Reviews and tips for PSYC1001

a pretty boring subject on the whole, but did have it's moments.. the unit coordinator Dr. Caleb Owens is an absolute man-child and frequently throws full-blown tantrums in lectures. "waa waa I'm an important white man listen to me waa waa" - Dr. Caleb Owens

No complaints with the lecturers - in particular, Frans was excellent. However, the unit coordinator Dr. Caleb Owens is the single worst academic-administrator I've ever had in 2 1/2 years of university. Rude, brusque, and marked research reports waaaay too harshly. Definitely made me question the faculty, as he has received complaints before.

Wonderful unit of study, extremely well organised. Only issue was with personality - the lecturer was very dry, but this is personal opinion. Every other lecture series was engaging. Exam was actually not as bad as I expected, and research report is MUCH easier than is made out....if you start early!

I think the content in this subject was really fun and interesting overall. However, I have some issues with the lecturers. The personality and emotion lecturers were disengaging and made interesting topics boring and unenjoyable through their bland delivery. Also, Caleb Owens can be funny but occasionally rude and arrogant. Excellent course, just some bad lecturers...

PSYC1001 was a stressful but rewarding and very interesting subject. When you gain access on Blackboard, you are provided with a manual. This will be your bible. Make sure you read it and make note of when assignments are due. There are three lectures every week for 13 weeks, so that's (give or take a few hours) about 39 hours of lecture content. This is why it is extremely important for you to keep on top of your notes and study throughout the semester, rather than leaving it all to StuVac. The Social Psychology lectures given by Rebecca and Human Development lectures given by Micah were my favourite, as they were extremely engaging and interesting. The other lecturers were quite good, however the Personality Lectures given by Fiona were terrible and extremely tedious - a solid 6 hours of my life I'll never get back. Do all the pre-tutorial work and although participation in this subject is not assessed, tutorials tend to enhance your understanding of the information conveyed in lectures, so attend your tutorials! Another piece of advice is to start the research report early. It is marked very harshly, so follow the rubric provided in your manual very closely to maximise your marks. PSYC1001 is an interesting subject, however, it is extremely demanding and to do well it is important that you are very organised and keep on top of everything.
