Comment:
I took Dr. Brosvic during the spring 2020 semester, so the class was moved to online during COVID. He was very helpful and understanding during the time and really tried to help make the class as easy as possible. I took it for a science credit and was not in the major but he seemed to really try to make the class interesting even to non-majors.

Comment:
Although the lectures are long and sometimes boring he does his best to make everyone interested in what you are learning. You are mainly graded on online quizzes which are fairly easy if you read the assigned readings that he puts online. Loves to joke around and he is all around a really nice guy and professor.

The lectures/powerpoints do help the quizzes, but make sure to read the readings before taking the quiz; get ready to read! If theres an online option for this class, then you should definitely take it online. He gives you extra credits opportunity, which is great. He also accessible outside classroom email or office hours.

Solid professor - love this guy, because he makes Psychology interesting. He always had personal anecdotes to relate back to the material, which it made the class so much better. I doubt I'll ever have to, but if I end up with Brosvic again, I'm not complaining. Great guy, great teacher. Truly one of the best at Rider.

Very interesting man and knowledgeable of his topic. There is no textbook to buy. Do the work, and you should do well. Long papers required of you. And you need to put in effort for them

Dr. Brosvic is one of the best professors to take for this subject. With his vast background with Drugs & Human Behavior it allows for his lectures to have good "real life" examples. Highly recommend him for this class - and lets you out early if you have him for night class!

I took Dr. Brosvic for PSY 100 over J Term and loved his class! He was helpful and his lectures were clear, it can get boring at times but it was still a great class! He handed out a copy of the powerpoint before every class that went along with what was being projected on the screen and his test were take home. Take his class if you can!

Was surprised to see all of the good comments! Took as an online class for my last few classes at the university, after some technical difficulties in submitting my first assignment, I was dropped from the class, emailed him several times and even stated what was needed to allow me into the class, he did not answer emails or help with any issues.

Comment:
Dr. Brosvic is the best professor I've had so far at Rider. He is always willing to help, with both in classroom struggles as well as out of classroom struggles. He really cares about his students, and wants to see everyone succeed. He is extremely knowledgable, and defines by example and real life situations so you can easily apply the concept.

Lectures in class are very interesting and realistic. Keeps you full 3 hours for night class. Only work is papers due every few weeks on YouTube vids. No attendance policy and cancels often. Really knows his stuff!

Dr. Brosvic is a great teacher! There is no reading homework besides so type of writing assignment once a week. His class is not easy because he has a lot of assignments but he gives you a grade that reflects the effort you put in.

This professor was great! He sent a disk with all the course work on it and didn't require you to purchase a textbook. He made you think outside the box often. He was very quick to grade and responsive when needed. TAKE HIM!!

I took an online class. I appreciated that he didn't require a book and posted the material online, however the syllabus was often incorrect. Also, when feedback was solicited responsiveness was poor and feedback was nonexistent. Grades posted quickly (except at end of the semester) and seemed to be an easier grader.

Comment:
Makes classes interesting with stories from his own life relating to the material. Wants students to succeed, though the class was like swallowing tons of information whole without getting chance to discuss it. In sum, a nice introductory class but would have been nice to have more analysis of information and discussion, not all memorization.
