in psychology the profs actually respect you and give you marks for your shitty opinions. In my program, your either right or your wrong, and rarly are people right.

lol.. psychology is no bird course at uoft.. it´s known to be one of the very hardest first year courses.. later year courses are equally as challenging.. in fact, to get into the psych program at uoft, you need at least 80% in psy100, which is friggin hard..

ask uoft students who have taken it too. . . a lot of people do really well in physics, math, etc. but get their ass kicked in psy100.. the amount of material is insane.

you cant just get aacepted to psychology from highschool?

i cant see psychology being that hard... psyc100 is going to be a prefered elective for every student in every program under the sun. Do you know why engineers and the tougher science programs reccomend psychology for electives? because it raises our GPA without taking up very much time.

i suppose psyc100(intro to psyc?) may not be a bird course for people in the arts, but for anyone used to learnign alot of material or doing alot of work i doubt its very difficult. There were people at my school who thought that intro to psyc was very difficult, but if those students ever tried to take calculus or dynamics they wouldnt last a week.

^so what you´re implying is that if you take courses like calculus and killed it in highschool and that this amount of work is nothing. then you should be fine in psychology first year.....whereas an arts student that never took a challenging course such as calculus (hard for most) and never had this kind of work will get killed in 1st year psychology?

intro to psyc is far from being a hard course at any university. It bothers me that some arts students say that a course is difficult just because they have to spent a little bit of work on it. Try taking thermodynamics, differential equations, numerical methods and then tell me that you spent alot of time on psychology.

The reason psychology is so hard at UofT is because everyone takes it thinking it´s a bird course. UofT forces 66% class averages so they add a mountain of readings and make exams hard. Psychology isn´t very tough at most universities. That workplace psychology they teach at engineering schools sure ain´t tough.

a 66% average doesnt indicate a bird course, but with all of the libral arts jokers who take it as an elective, it shouldnt be that hard to best more than 1/2 the class.

Most of my classes hover around 60%, some dip down much lower than that. If i considered a 66% average class hard i would be sitting pretty in university i tell ya.

I can´t speak for how it is at other Universities, but intro to psych. at UofT is not even close to being a bird course. I urge all of you coming to UofT to take it because it´s a great course, but don´t expect easy marks. Many of the students in intro. to psych. are actually life science students, not arts.

BTW, psychology is part of life sciences. There is no arts program in psych.

Psychology was a part of Pilosophy. Sigmund Freud, a psychiatrist, just made it more like a scientific discipline. In my point of view, it´s just social science but not life sciences.

It should be a B.A. instead of B.Sc.
