    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    Geology 1403 is an easy course that is good for both science credits and as an introduction to the world of geology. Lectures may be boring to some, but to others it is fascinating. Even those who find themselves dosing off in class have an easy time catching up on all material. Labs are about as interesting as Geology can get, depending on interest this is both good and bad, and offer insight on the lecture in a form which lecture cannot teach.

    Course highlights:

    The most interesting part of the course is definitely the labs. Varied and intriguing, they may not be to everyones liking but they surely help to explain the material. One of the biggest take aways from this course is the difference between rocks and minerals. This simple lesson encapsulates the hidden world of Geology and showcases that there is more to Earth than what is originally known.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    The most vital tool to pass this class is surely the book. Even the best of students can find themselves bored during lecture, however those same students compensate by reading the required readings at home. Paying attention during class, if possible, helps to reinforce what was learned in the readings and are just as important. Overall, students should be weary of keeping up with material at all times.

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    I would most certaintly recommend this course! It's amazing to learn about the earth! It feels good to have the knowledge of why earthquakes and tsunamis happen, or how to tell the difference between limestone and sandstone! I believe it is knowledge everyone should have.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights of this course would probably be the fullfilment you get from KNOWING. A lot of us live our day to day lives knowingthat these things happen but not being able to explain why or what causes them. I love being knowledgable, about all things but this was very special information to learn.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    I would say to pay attention as I would for any course. I would also say to really test yourself outside of the classroom. If your at the park or the beach and you see a rock, challenge yourself to classify what type of rock that is! Even if your in a jewlery store looks and see if you can find the items that contain gold or obsidian! This will help you really learn what you are being taught.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    She was an awesome geology professor! Very helpful and offered extra credit assignments to visit places like Galveston and various parks to hike around. She kept you updated with a geology Facebook page as well as her geology blog. I would highly recommend her. You will make an A as long as you work hard, and complete all the extra credit. Her tests are a little difficult because she gives you so much information and only four or five questions that are short essay but I would still take her class again.

    Course highlights:

    This course was a lot of fun. You will be given a mineral box and a rock box. Each one is for a separate test and you will learn to identify them by different properties. She sets up the test where you go to stations with a rock at it, write down your answer, and move to the next station. She also has really fun labs to help demonstrate her lessons. Not only did I learn a lot about geology in this course, I also learned a lot about science in general.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    You will need time for this course. Although she doesn't make you come to class, it was difficult for me after missing just one class so it is advisable to always show up. Her papers are a little confusing but if you ask her for help, she will work with you.
