Took his Intro Psych class online Fall 2013. He uses Psychportal instead of Blackboard and I found it to be much more organized content-wise once you got used to it. There are a lot of activities that break down the material into layman's terms. Make sure to keep notes on your PC or a notebook so that you can use it during the exam.

The energy he brings to the class is amazing and always made it fun. He's a genuinely friendly guy and did a great job making this class. There's a lot of work, but I liked the use of journal entries and discussion boards(was great for quiet people like me). I don't care if your a man or woman, if psychology or soc. interests you, this class is a must!

Brad seems like a friendly enough guy, but I seem to have gotten him in a very bad semester. He obviously had way too much on his plate with having to help hire new teachers (he told us this in many emails). He got very behind on grading which made it incredibly difficult to know what to study for the multiple unit exams. This class made me dislike psych.

I took his intro psych and mens psychology. He has very passionate about the subjects. Incredibly hillarious and cares about each student. He uses a online website called psychportal with his intro psych class (that you have to pay for and includes book) but i reccomend also purchasing a difficult copy. Both courses are possible to get an A.

He is a great prof. and who is passionate about psychology. He explains everything well and he is very accommodating. Just make sure you attend class because his exams are based off of courses.

This class was pretty simple. At first, he goes through a lot of medical background and physiology of the brain, but after that the class was pretty fascinating. He gives LOTS of extra credit which makes getting a great grade really simple.

I took his Men:Psychology class last year. He is an excellent teacher with a lot of energy and enthusiasm. It was a very fascinating class and he is well educated in the subject. One of my favorite courses.
