    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    This is a wonderful class with a great hands-on lab. Professor Barker is mindful and hilarious, and he gladly helps any and all students. His notes are very easy to follow along with and the labs give you practical application to what you are currently studying in lecture. I really enjoyed getting to study different rocks and minerals!

    Good overview of the basics and principles of geology. Studied things like rocks, minerals, earth processes like earthquakes, volcanoes, mountains, and some basic geography!

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    Make sure you get the notes from lectures-- his tests are straight from his notes!
