This was a very good class and I enjoyed it very much. I would recommend it to everyone if you have enough time and effort to put into it. Their is allot of reading to do and the test are some what detailed as well. I busted my butt of studying for this class and doing the readings but I still ended up getting only a B grade. But, on the other hand, everything that you need to read is very interesting and quite enjoyable. I got allot and learned very much from this class. The test are pretty reasonable I guess, if you do all the readings and study very very well the about 30 chapters and class notes as well.
I really enjoyed this class. We watched 6 films throughout the course of the class. They were very entertaining and the commentaries were an easy way to earn points. The extremely short papers we wrote were also a source of easy points. The midterm and final were composed of multiple choice questions. It is critical to read all of the material assigned. A close reading of the material will ensure a good grade in the class. I would definitely recommend this class to anyone. It was very informative and interesting.
Prof Peplau may seem a bit standoffish in lecture, but unlike may other psych profs, she is actually very warm and personable in office hours. This was the best psych class I have taken, and the prof bends over backwards to administer the exams in a fair and democratic way (giving you a page to respond about unfair questions and considering throwing them out, writing questions in a fair and clear way). Unfortunately, there isn't always time for class discussion, though there probably should be, especially since some of the research she presents has some problematic implications (for example, at the end of the class she presents Prof Sidanius's research "disconfirming" the double jeopardy hypothesis, that women of color are doubly oppressed). Overall, though, her class is really worth taking, and is by far the most LGBT friendly Psych class I have taken (believe it or not, this includes Prof Garnets class, if only because Prof Garnets doesn't cover trans issues).
