    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I like the class because it is easy to follow as long as you show up to lecture and take good notes. The tests follow the study guides, so if you work hard, you will get a good grade. Annia also does her best to make classes interesting by including real-life examples of course concepts.

    Course highlights:

    One highlight of the course was the geologic time unit. It is fascinating to learn how scientists date things back to billions of years ago. Another highlight was learning about river systems.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Show up to ALL lectures and take advantage of the study guides that are put online. Take detailed notes and go over the powerpoints when you can.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Helped me realize that I LOVE geology! Very passionate professor who knew my dad from 30 years ago in the program.

    Course highlights:

    Lots of basic mineral identification (SO FUN) and basic geophysics.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    GO TO LECTURE! The quizzes are easy if you pay attention in class. Read the book if you don't understand something.

    | No strong feelings either way.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    The class is mostly lecture based and I had about 100 students in my class. The class focused mostly on geology because it was the most interesting to Annia. However, near the end she asked us for topics we would like to talk about in class and she picked a few and taught them. There was no homework outside of class except to study for tests.

    Course highlights:

    One of the highlights is Annia herself. I was lost a lot and sometimes was behind the other students and she encouraged me to go to her office hours. I did and she was so kind and helpful! I learned a lot about how the Earth is formed and I definitely feel more knowledgeable about Earth's history and geology.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    Annia allowed us to have a large notecard to view during the test. Fill as much of the notecard you can (front and back) and also print off graphs she says are important. It can go a little too in depth for an intro course and having a background in science (specifically chemistry) would be beneficial.
