Department of Psychology
- I am very passionate about effective teaching at the undergraduate level. I teach PSYC 115: Psychology as a Natural Science, PSYC 116: Psychology as a Natural Science Laboratory, PSYC 220: The Senses, PSYC 240: Drugs and Behavior, and PSYC 301: Research Methods. These courses allow me to convey important scientific and Psychological components to both majors and non-majors at the University. One of the biggest challenges I face comes from the fact that non-majors can take my course for General Education credit for their science requirement. Most students are very up front that they "don't like science" or "don't get science", and I believe that this is just not the case. All students, from all walks of life, and all majors can take my course. I strive to give them the tools to understand and learn about science and grow to fully appreciate the depth and breadth of the advances in knowledge provided by the scientific method. I believe that my students always come first, and hope to provide a supportive, interactive, and fun learning environment for all.
