people complain his marking is hard but honestly i found it super fair, if you put in the work an A is easily achievable
class is super interesting if you’re interested in mental health and mental illness.
really good prof who is passionate about the topics he teaches
Pay attention to what he says in the lectures over what is written on the slides. Some test questions are things he will have stated in class. The midterm and exam typically cover broader themes of the course rather than exact details, except for information found specifically in the readings. The difficulty of the grading on the essay depends entirely on who you get as your TA, although Savelli does tell them to mark hard.
He does not believe in giving 100% and is a hard marker. Just a heads up if you ask for an extension on any written assignment he will be grading it rather than your TA.
There are a LOT of readings but try not to fall behind in the work because you do need to know your stuff to do well and it’s a pain to cram it all right before an essay or exam.

Grading was very difficult, especially for a first year class. Barely any feedback that actually helped with future assignments or papers.
A class for people who can write reallyyyyyy well
