    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This was an honors class that was a lot of fun to take. The class was organized in a way where we had a lecture for part of class and then split into groups where we were given a problem and had to apply what we learned. It was a great way to engage with the material, be evaluated in it, and learn it in a different way.

    Course highlights:

    In this class we looked at the ways cells interact with each other which was very different from other classes. We also studied how different parts of the cells interact/work together to allow the cell to function.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Definitely study a lot for the exams and know the general processes discussed. Pay attention and be an active participant in the problems worked on in class.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I LOVED this course. This course may possibly be my favorite course I have taken at Penn State so far. Cell biology is a very interesting topic. You really learn how and why things happen in different cells, and the outcomes they produce. This course was challenging but being attentive in class, and discussing the material with other people was a really successful study method.

    Course highlights:

    This course I learned about different cell processes in depth. Some examples are mitosis, meiosis, cellular respiration, and cell motility. Signaling pathways were a really important concept of the course. This course gave us the knowledge base and practice at reading published scientific papers about current research, which was fascinating.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    The tests are challenging, you really have to know the material. To study, you cannot just read the lecture notes. My advice is to teach the concepts to friends in the class. If you can teach it well, then you know that you know it. It is really important to distinguish between what you know and what you don't, and can be harder than it seems.
