I was considering going to become a psychologist. I was wondering a few things

1. Are the courses extremely hard?
2. Is this a job you love every day?
3. What are some good courses to take?

When I was teaching, I used to be told by some students in Introductory Psychology that they expected it to be a "bird course" (easy, a give-away) and were surprised to find that they actually had to work to get a decent mark.

Having said that, it really depends on which courses you take, which in turn is defined by the program you are taking and what it is you want to do with your degree when you finish. Psychology is a broad field. For many positions, you will require at least a Masters degree and in many cases a Ph.D., so you are committing youtself to ore than just a Bachelor's program.
