    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This is one of the few gen-eds you'll actually be asked to think critically in, and thinking is why I'm attending university in the first place! Prather can be a little much sometimes, but the class is worth it, and you'll learn how to work with headstrong instructors. Interestingly, they're studying the science of learning in this course, so if you're interested in taking part in an experiment in knowledge retention and learning, this class is for you. Not to mention there's barely any homework!

    Course highlights:

    You'll learn all about our planet, global climate change, stars, the universe... best of all, we're always talking about cutting edge discoveries in science and the practical applications of every topic mentioned in class.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Show up to class, and make sure to write in your tutorial book so come finals time you don't look back and realize you've forgotten everything. Review your quizzes and learn from your mistake. Don't be afraid to talk to the TAs (they're awesome), especially if you're feeling annoyed at the professor.
