This was my second course using this site, and with Professor Bloom, and once again it was great. I've genuinely learnt a lot, and I've found a new love for psychology I never would have found before.

I absolutely enjoyed taking this course! Professor Bloom did an incredible job explaining the course material and providing additional reading materials to further my knowledge throughout this course.

I really enjoyed the class as it covered a rather wide array of introductory topics ranging from memory to mental illness in addition to much more. I also respected Dr. Bloom's treatment of the mind-body problem and how he addressed the stance of religious people without being discourteous - although, the course definitely has a naturalistic approach.

Even if you are not a psychology student or not seeing this as your major you must consider opting for this online course. I personally liked it because it offered me what i expected the most from it, that is to learn about people around me and to understand them more. Was able to understand myself more too, what every GenZ wants the most right now!

The way professor Bloom explained each and every terminology by giving examples making it understandable and easy to remember. There are some animations involved that keeps you interested too. The readings were not too lengthy and informative at the same time. some surveys were involved that i found super interesting. Then again you have forums too.

this is my 3rd course from Coursera and I think this one is the best in a way that the professor is really engaging and you feel like you were in a real lecture room. The video is not boring and the reading material is worth reading and scientific based not like some course that the reading material was referred from some non-evidence based website.

It was an excellent course taught to me by the Renowned Professor of Yale University on the subject of Introduction to Psychology. He has an excellent knowledge of the subject. The subject matter enriched my knowledge and further hones my skills on Psychology . Hearties thanks to the Yale University and to the concerned Professor of this subject.

I was always curious about psychology. Professor Bloom did a great job introducing it to me. Do I want to delve further? No, I'll leave that to the professionals. What this course has done though, is confirm my belief that there are high functioning "psychos" among us, re the James Bond reference. Thank you for an eye and mind opening introduction.

I loved taking this course. I enrolled in this course because of Prof Bloom, after coming across his work a couple of years ago. I even referenced him in a book I wrote, called dognitive therapy. I am an animal behaviourist and discussed cognitive vs emotional empathy in my book. Thank you for such a wonderful course. And, hi to Professor Bloom! :)

Introduction to Psychology was a fascinating course that covered a wide variety of topics. It was very beginner friendly and did a good job at giving a broad understanding of the topic while simultaneously going into a bit more depth where needed. The course was taught fantastically and I feel I got a lot out of it as a whole. 5/5 would recommend.

Would like to thank Paul Bloom for the excellent course. It not only gave me general idea about Psychology but also helped me understand what topics I am more interested in. The methodology of explanation is perfect and in case you are not native speaker, no worries. Everything is explained in a very clear and interesting way. Thank you very much.

This is a well-rounded course reviewing a broad range of materials and concepts in psychology. It was easy to follow and the lecturer was engaging, and I enjoyed that although the lecturer shared his own opinions or beliefs at times, he was also sharing contrasting view points. It provokes many questions and inspires further inquiry and reading.

I loved this engaging course and will be following up on all the suggested readings. Highly recommend. I will use this course as a reference and engage in the discussions. There were some things I did not agree with but I want to ponder and read more before joining the discussion. There is a good chance that I'm wrong! That's the joy of learning.

Cannot ask for more from a "introductory" course. This was more than that, with both an excellent breadth and excellent resources provided for deep-dive into particular topics. Prof. Bloom has a very soothing narration and has covered this vast topic in a very engaging way. I really want to thank him for making this course available for everyone.

This is course is an excellent start to gving you the basics of psychology. Prof Bloom is a natural, speaker , he teaches as if he is telling a story. I throughly enjoyed learning and all of the material that were presented. This course put many of the pieces of the "what is psychology" puzzel together. This course was very worth the investment.

I was really curious about Psychology, I studied Marketing and had a single class dedicated to it, but to me it wasn’t that helpful, so I started to search for courses that were easy to understand, and started with the basic principles, I’m so glad I stumble upon Professor Bloom and his course.
I highly recommend it for anyone with a curious mind!

A brilliant, insightful and engaging course. Covering all the core topics of psychology, serving as a great tool to either introduce people to the vast topic of psychology, or to remind, revise and solidify knowledge developed from previous research and education. I would recommend this to anyone remotely interested in learning about psychology.

I'm halfway through week two and so far im LOVING THIS. honestly haven't genuinely enjoyed learning anything for a while until now. The lectures are well organised and engaging, and the reading are relevant and provides deeper understanding into course material. I have learnt a LOT just from watching the lectures and taking note while doing it.

The course is absolutely great. I enjoyed every bit. Professor Bloom is an excellent teacher. The topics are intriguing and very well selected. I am now a different person than I was before the course in my outlook on things, my understanding of people, children, and myself. I must also say the graphics, drawings and sound effects were amazing !

Gave an excellent introduction into Psychology. Had high expectations from the course and it met and exceeded them. After completion, felt that I know myself a little bit better. Am encouraging my son who is going to medical school this fall to take the course during this pandemic lockdown. Thank you Coursera and thank you Professor Paul Bloom.

A really great course, well constructed, great use of graphics and illustrations, keeps you focused. Well paced with solid assessment. If you are using a computer or laptop, please check that if using the arrow keys changes your answers when completing the quizzes! I tapped down an assessment with my arrow buttons and changed all my answers!

Professor Bloom made this course more engaging than it al ready was. The topics you learn are very interesting, everyone should have a glimpse of what psychology is, how we are different and how our brain works. The assessments are accurate and ask you about the lectures, the readings help you understand better and answer some other questions.

very comprehensive contents as this is the introductory course of Psychology, it is good for a beginner to learn what is Psychology about to how this could improve our lives, or at work, etc. At the end of the course is about happiness which is the essential concept in people's live gave me a lot to think about and the next learning objectives.

it gave me a really good perspective into what psychology is and what it contains of. The various perspectives of it and what I can expect from it, if i want to take it up in the future. It also gave me an understanding of a few things around us and makes me what to know more and read more into the various things that had been introduced to us.

It was a very informative course and it provided a lot of insights into many questions you may have about social interactions/settings. The course is well structured, and Professor Bloom's engaging animated lectures were a delight to listen to. I will recommend to anyone, despite your field of work/study, since it is relevant to everyday life.
