    When I first went to university, Family Studies was never a part of the plan. However, after taking two Family Studies courses in my first year, I know I had to find space in my degree for the program. Believe it or not, I actually enjoyed doing the course readings for my Family Studies course as the textbook was not the average textbook. It was actually an interesting textbook.
    For both Psychology and Family Studies, there are small workload. They entail course readings and exams.

    My program was just okay, there are many improvements to be made. It mixes practice with theory very well which is exactly what I was looking for. However, some courses are not challenging or practical enough which left me questioning their usefulness and purpose. Course load was sometimes in line with a master's degree for some courses, while others didn't require much which goes back to my previous comment. Tuition is too high and keeps on increasing unreasonably. Plus, there isn't enough financial supports for students.

    Lectures were very informative. Well planned too! Course structure was detailed and resources such as library were easily available. Tution was a little high and could be looked into. Workload fluctuated and could be overwhelming if not done on everyday basis.
