Three courses taught by Bob Riesenberg at WCC are represented on this web page:

bulletPsych 100 General Psychology has many sections each quarter.  There are both hybrid and all classroom sections.  One Fall hybrid section is 50% in-class and 50% online work.  The other hybrid section is the former telecourse General Psychology.  It is now a hybrid section that is 20% classroom, 40% online, and 40% telecourse videos.
bulletPsych 220 Abnormal Psychology is offered Fall and Winter Quarters.
bulletPsych 240 Environmental Psychology is offered Spring Quarter 2013 .  The course fulfills the "sustainability" degree requirement.

All three courses meet WCC distribution requirements.   Environmental Psychology also meets the Global requirement (G in the catalog) for the AA transfer degree from WCC.  Abnormal Psychology also meets the Diversity requirement (D in the catalog).
