    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This specific professor is very passionate about anthropology and her teaching style makes it very easy to understand a complex evolution of the human species and primates in general.

    Course highlights:

    I very much enjoyed the unit on primates because I find this subject very interesting considering primates are so closely related to humans in regards to anatomy.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Take extremely good notes. I personally would almost copy down the slides and then compress them later. These notes will help you so much when taking pre-lab quizzes and studying for exams.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This course primarily focuses on humans and primates from biological and cultural perspectives. While I never enjoyed biology or chemistry, intro to physical anthropology focuses more on the big ideas which, in my opinion, are way more interesting and applicable to the real world. It's extremely fascinating and you learn a lot about your standing as a human in the biological world.

    Course highlights:

    One of the highlights is when you begin to study primates. You not only learn the different types and how they are related to each other, but you also learn how to categorize any primate by only a few of their biological charecteristics.

    Hours per week:

    12+ hours

    Advice for students:

    Read, take detailed notes, and review often. This course introduces a lot of new terms and ideas not present in your average biology class, so make sure you read and take notes. I would even recommend taking notes ahead of time so that when the professor goes over the material it's a review and clarification rather than the first time you are hearing the information. Also unlike in other classes the terms/ideas from earlier units are carried over into every unit after that. For example, if you learn about the four forces of evolution in Unit 1 or for Exam 1, know that those forces of evolution will show up again in response questions or exam questions. Also when you get notes on different traits for specific classifications write down all of the possible traits, and later while studying only keep the ones you know you will remember.
