    | Would recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course to those in the GES program who are focusing on Field Conservation efforts, Environmental Consultation, or Park Planning. This course gives you a great background of current and past environmental issues. This course looks at the biological, physical, chemical, legislative, and anthropogenic components of conservation efforts and how they link together. I thoroughly enjoyed the content of this course. The only reason I did not "highly" recommend this course is because Dr. Barnum cut class short frequently (an hour and fifteen minute class would be cut down to 20-30 minutes nearly every time we met). We could have delved deeper into the course content.

    Course highlights:

    I thought the use of various audio-visual techniques were helpful to understand some tricky concepts (i.e. various periods of glaciation and the outcomes of each). Biggest outcome is the overall understanding of biological, chemical, geo-physical, and cultural connected-ness of environmental issues.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Purchase the textbook and rely on it when studying for the tests. Attend lecture, as professor uploads empty slides that are missing important details. Stay current on environmental issues and be able to think of examples of topics discussed.
