Not too easy. Not too difficult.
I recommend this course for those who are interested in astrophysics. It is one of the requirements for the degree, but it is also an addition to a physics class. I do enjoy the class and it can be fun for those who enjoy math.
In addition to learning in class, there is a lab portion as well. Lab can be demanding, but it is an opportunity for anyone to look at the star and calculate the technical parts of the universe. I learned many equations that can help me figure out how to send objects into space, and the different aspects of orbits.

Advice for students:
If a student were to take the class, I would recommend studying an half an hour every night. The work load is not demanding, but you need how to utilize the book and pass the class.
