    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    If you are not a ANTH or Science major, this course was not your typical difficult science course. I took this course as a Kent Core and it was hard, yes, BUT it was very interesting and I would highly recommend the course to anyone!

    Course highlights:

    The focus of this course was the evolution of our species and the order to which we belong (Primates). It was a course focused on the foundation for understanding the mechanisms of human evolution and adaptation: basic cell biology and genetics, primate characteristics and behavior, and the fossil evidence for nonhuman primate and human evolution.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Make sure that you attend your lectures. Especially if you are taking the lab as well. It will help in the long run. If you skip, you will be lost.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    A lot of material to remember. He clearly explains topics but has a lot of notes to take which makes listening to him hard. If you have trouble with memorization, do not take this class.

    Course highlights:

    I honestly did not gain much from this course because I lost interest. I just remembered enough to get by in the class because the lectures were very boring. If you hate long lectures, you won't learn much.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    MAKE FLASHCARDS! That helped me a lot. Also, make sure to break chapters up from most important information to least important. You'll have a lot of flashcards so keep organized. Organization is key in this class.

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    If you need a science for a Kent Core class, definitely take this class! The professor is really good and you don't need the required textbook. Also, she makes note sheets you can print off and this is exactly what will be on the exam. You can also study for the class by filling these note sheets out again. Also, she gives extra credit for attendance (up to ten points). Exams are not cumulative.

    Course highlights:

    In this course you learn about cell biology (briefly), monkeys, and prehuman history. The monkey part is 1/3 of the course and you literally learn about different classes of monkeys. It's actually very interesting and easy. The human history part was what I found most interesting and was also 1/3 of the class.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    Make sure to use the note sheets! They make class super easy and EVERYTHING on the exam is on the note sheet. It keeps you from taking unnecessary notes and makes it easy to write everything down because her powerpoints aren't online. If you miss class, stop in for office hours and she will give you the notes.
