COURSE TAKEN: Psych 137G - Social Cognitive Neuroscience Overall really great class. Lieberman basically invented this area of psychological research this is first time a class like this has been taught to undergraduates anywhere in the country. So taking this class is a really unique opportunity for an UCLA undergrad. Difficulty: as a graduating senior psychology major, this was one of the easier psychology upper divisions I have taken. Don’t be scared by the name of the class. Although neuroscience can be very complicated Pr. Lieberman makes it very manageable. If you just attend lectures you’ll be good, the readings are more supplemental and closely match the lectures. Content: this is really cool subfield that uses neuroscience tools to answer social psychology questions. (It leans more towards social psychology than neuroscience.) As a senior it also offered me a unique perspective on psychology different from other psych classes I’ve taken. Teaching style: Lieberman is a great lecturer. He’s well spoken and fun to listen to. I received an A in the class.
AVOID THIS CLASS!!! She is the worst professor I have EVER had at UCLA. Extremely unorganized and not attentive to students' needs. And more than that the topic was not at all as interesting as I thought it would be. Reading the book and course reader served no purpose because all test questions can from her unorganized lectures. I don't know how in the world she got to teach at such an amazing university, but she needs to be fired.
