Note: Top 5 Most Loved and Hated College Courses
Not all subjects are created equal. Some inspire students enough to happily attend 8 a.m. classes, while others incite contempt and swear at all hours of the day.
In the new CollegeStats survey, the college database website polled 500 undergraduate and postgraduate students to discover and rank once and for all the classes students loved and hated the most.

It is the branch of psychology that delves into the unusual, from behavior to emotion and thoughts, which could lead to mental disorder. Again, the presidency of Donald Trump may or may not have played a role in the popularity of this course.
