This is a very interesting course. I've learned a lot and is helpful to understand how exactly genetics effects us and hat factors contribute to schizophrenia. Great course, would highly recommend!
It is an amazing course. After this course, my perspective towards genetics and psychology have changed. Many thanks to Professor Matt McGue. He has been one amazing guide, for the subject.
Matt is absolutely fantastic at teaching- he is very engaging and great at explaining things and the course itself is fascinating. Thank you to Matt and Bridget!
I loved this course because it made me think about topics and points that I had never considered before, and I think it's a really fascinating area of genetics.
Become obsessed with the subject of behavioral genetics and have decided to take a major regarding such field!! An absolutely stellar course!!
Pretty advanced at times. Had a little trouble getting through some of the lessons but I really learned a lot and it was worth the effort.
excellent course but could use an update now in 2018. Or a follow up course thats builds on this course would be very interesting too.
I am a psychotherapist and I am a teacher at a public university in India and in both capacities I find this course very insightful.
I had no idea what I was getting into... seemed an odd topic so I enrolled... pretty amazing stuff... too bad we know so little
I am intrigued by this course and determined to learn more about this field in the future. Thank you Professor and your team.
Great teacher. The course starts off very interesting but then it felt lengthy and that the material could be condensed.
Amazing... Thank you for beeing so pationate by the topic and keeping such complicating information so simple and clear.
As a complete novice to the subject I found the course very interesting, stimulating both academically and ethically.
the course provides pretty good material that draw in all topics in the growing field of human behavioural genetics
A brilliant course that covers the basics of behavioural genetics clearly and in an engaging manner.
Very interesting!!\n\nVery pedagogical, going step by step but very deep into behavioral psychology
I learned a lot more indepth information about genetics and the role genes play in our lives.
What a wonderful course! I loved everything about it and learned so much. Thank you!
Though the title says "introduction", but it is a very rich course.\n\nThank you.
Very interesting. I just finished the new Plomin book and will now reread it.
