    | No strong feelings either way.

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    This material in this class is fairly straightforward. The principles you learn in geology are logical and easy to understand; however, there are also random facts and tidbits that you need to know, and the lectures can be somewhat dry if you are not a geology major or someone with a specific interest in that topic. I took a blended class, so we only met once a week, but I found this advantageous because I am particularly apt at learning things on my own, outside of a classroom setting; if you do not share this quality with me, I would recommend a traditional version of the class that meets twice a week. For those of you with a short attention span, be aware! Each session of this class is almost three hours long due to the lab section. Overall, though, as long as you study your notes and bring a coffee with you to class, you should do fairly well in the course.

    Course highlights:

    This professor is incredibly excited about her field, and you can easily see her enthusiasm; I think this quality allows for the class to be a bit more interesting, even to people like myself who do not care much for geology. The lab section of the class is hands on, which did more for my understanding of geology than any of the lectures did. I learned quite a bit about rock identification, as well as the basic processes that create certain types of rocks. I also learned about many of Earth's internal processes and how they affect the shape and structure of the land we walk on today. Honestly, this changed my perspective in some ways; it allowed me to look at some of Earth's features with a bit more awe and respect.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    My two main pieces of advice are to attend class regularly and to ask as many questions as you can. There is too much information presented within a single class to easily recover if you miss one. Also, this professor includes a participation portion in her grading, so remaining engaged in class is a big plus for your grade.

    | Would recommend.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    This is a fairly difficult course but it is manageable if you keep up with your work and take decent notes in class. The rock test is probably one of the hardest tests I have ever taken but I am also bad at memorizing, especially rocks apparently.

    Course highlights:

    I learn a lot of new things about the earth and also learned that there are way more rocks than you could actually imagine.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    Make sure you take good notes and do the mastering geology!
