    | Would recommend.

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    This course covers 4 of the SAS core requirements, and caters to the needs of non-Anthropology students. It is also very easy provided you show up to lecture. Most of the readings can be skimmed if they need to be read at all and the TAs are generally helpful when it comes to understanding the concepts that Dr. Scott wants you know for the exam. However, make sure not ask "What do we need to know for the Exam?", there is no quicker way to bother the professor than that. You'll also need an iClicker for attendance. The recitation sections are also great for discussion, as the TAs are looking to make sure that you understand the concept rather than review what was happening in lecture. If you can put your two cents in on the topics that your TA brings up, you'll be sure to get full participation in the recitation section.

    Course highlights:

    In this course, you will learn about the 5 main extinctions that happened in the past along with extinctions of language and culture. Dr. Scott does over evolution as much as he does extinction, as the two work in tandem with one another, which is something he will explain time and time again. At the end of the semester, you'll also go over possible ways humanity may go extinct. It may be a little grim sometimes, but it generally interesting enough to hold your attention throughout lecture and recitation.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    I would recommend only reading the articles that the professor mentions in class closely. The rest of the articles are skimmable. This course does require you to do 4 written assignments, each longer than the last that I would not recommend procrastinating on. They all can be done in a few hours, but the grading on them can be a little rough if you're not a strong writer. The TAs are generally willing to help you with your essays if you come to them with at least a week in between then and the due date.
