    | Would highly recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I strongly recommend this class because the professor is very informative and you will learn a lot more than you would expect. The class was not an easy class but you will really appreciate everything much more than you do now, for example, the Earth and your surroundings.

    Course highlights:

    The lectures combined with online readings and homework were a great combo since you could apply your knowledge online and learn a lot any way, even more both ways, extremely beneficial.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    My advice to other students is to always take good notes and reread them later after lectures and to do their homework ahead of time in order to do everything in a clam matter and to not rush through them.

    | No strong feelings either way.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    This class was very tough, it took away more time than any of my other classes. For someone that is not majoring in science, they may want to find a professor that is not as tough on the students with the rigorous amount of work.

    Course highlights:

    I learned how to identify a few geological structures that I would not have known about if I had not taken that class. Also, I learned how volcanoes erupt and how tsunamis are formed.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    For anyone taking this course, I would recommend that they take 15 hours or less while taking this class, because Geology takes a lot of valuable time away from a student.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    This class is easy compared to all the other science classes if you are a non science major. It is not easy, but it is better than the other science courses.

    Course highlights:

    I learned how to tell rocks apart and how the earth was developed over time.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    If you decide to take this course, do not take it lightly because it is very difficult.
