    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I loved this class! Because it was in the summer, it moved quickly. It was quite a bit of material, but very focused and easier to retain. The selection of field trips was wonderful, and the professor was very knowledgeable on the subject.

    Course highlights:

    We learned not only the scientific names of dozens of plants from the appalachian area, but also the common names. The professor even took the time to identify plants that were not on our list, but still interesting to learn. The hands on experiences from actually disassembling plants and identifying parts was unmatched by any book diagram I've seen.

    Hours per week:

    12+ hours

    Advice for students:

    Take pictures and detailed notes if possible. It may be best to buddy up with someone in order to accomplish this and share the work because the class moves fast.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    It is a great class with a very knowledgeable teacher. The field portion of the class really helps reaffirm what was taught in class and allows you to learn more effectively through experience.

    Course highlights:

    You learn 100 species of native plants, and about 20 of the families that house them. It teaches you the negative impacts invasive plants have on native ecosystems, and about the general systematics of plants.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Always study for the plant identification quizzes. Herbarium photos help tremendously with learning to identify them.

    Don't just try to memorize. Learn the features of the plants so that you can identify based on those features.
