    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Even though I may be a Geology major, that doesn't mean I went into the course knowing everything there is to know about the Earth and how it functions. When I went into this course, there were some things that I did already know but by the end of the semester I had a newfound appreciation for all the hard work that goes into the research done to understand our planet.

    Course highlights:

    While Taking this course, I found that the most interesting part was learning about what it actually takes to build mountains. Going into the course, I knew a a little bit about mountain formation but when we finished the lectures on it, I learned so many more details that I didn't know before. For example, many people know that mountains form when two continental plates collide and the earth between them is pushed upwards. But mountains can also form as a result of subduction (when one continental plate is pushed beneath another) and through continental rifting (the separation of two plates).

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    When taking this course, keeping up with the notes is extremely important. Professor Cardace has a tendency to speed her way through the PowerPoints and leave people behind. If you missed notes in class, having the lectures available online is important.
