Introduction to Psychology reviews
Easy, fast, and effective!
Even though I didnt rate all lessons. I liked them.
This was a really fun experience, I love that you can choose the style of learning
One of the easiest classes I've taken so far.
This has been my favorite course on Sophia. This course reinforced my desire to continue studying psychology. I'll be referencing it for days to come.
I enjoyed the instructor. I appreciate the extensions while I was deployed to wildfires and for Red Cross. I had many challenges to complete this course but I finally did. Yahoo!!
Great class! I am taking few courses on top of my existing classes I am taking at my university in order to speed up the timeline to get my bachelors. I am nearing my completion of this journey, nearly 6 years in the making, and Sophia Learning is assisting me in getting there quicker.
