Reviews and tips for PSYC1001

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!

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.

PSYC1001 is designed to orientate students to the scientific study of Psychology. With PSYC1002 it covers the range of academic and clinical psychology disciplines, taking you through the fundamental principles of how we pursue psychology as an academic discipline. This subject is for both those pursuing psychology or as a casual elective. I will stress that this is not an applied psychology course: it will not teach you skills to help friends, family or yourself.

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

The subject itself is interesting and the lecturers were good but it's VERY fast-paced, everything is so crammed! If you're not organised or don't attend lectures you're screwed. The assignment is pretty bs, the exam annoying, tutorials were a waste of time but that probably depends on your tutor... Wouldn't recommend it as a filler subject. Do it if you genuinely want to pursue psych. I don't really feel like I got anything out of it in the end of the day, kinda made me lose interest in psych in general but that's just my experience.
