  • Kyaw Kyaw Aye completed this course, spending 6 hours a week on it and found the course difficulty to be medium.

    The Key Word that I learned from this course is UNDERSTANDING. It means that Understanding of Self (Self-Awareness) and Understanding of Other through using or exploring the Knowledge or Practice of Psychological Concepts or Developmental Concepts. For me, Science is very Powerful. It is capable to make or it can affect Our Life Positively. I believe this course will make you motivate to understand yourself and other. In addition, it can affect or understand Feeling or Emotion of you or other (E.g. Empathy, Sympathy and Consideration or Kindness).

    Hello everyone!

    I liked the course, as it introduces the structure of our brain and the processes that occur in it at different stages of a person's life.

    Psychology is a very interesting science. The course also focuses on human psychology, and what controls the desires and capabilities of everyone.
