    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I have yet to see a professor more passionate about a class's subject than Dr. Bernardo. The level of intellectual curiosity and intrigue he brings to ecology and evolution makes the class a wonderful learning environment, where you can look forward to learning exciting things about this field rather than just notes from a presentation. The class is tough, but it is worth it.

    Course highlights:

    The amount of knowledge you learn is astounding. Dr. Bernardo is very experienced in this field and makes sure you enriched with as much extra knowledge as possible, going off on tangents to the material to discuss extraneous information and matters. While this does make exams difficult, it makes the class itself enriching and rewarding.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Carry yourself with an attitude to learn. You will have to put a lot of work into this course to make the grade, for Dr. Bernardo often goes off on tangents to the presentation to talk about some extra knowledge. Therefore, the actual information on the slide is sometimes not explained in depth, and this will make exams difficult. However, the knowledge you will acquire along the way will make for a lasting impression, and should be very interesting to those hoping to enter the field of biology in the future.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Genes, Ecology, and Evolution is an interesting course with implications across the fields of biology. Professor Bernardo makes connections to all of these implications and attempts to explain the underlying processes. However, his teaching style leaves much to be desired and his exams are unorganized.

    Course highlights:

    Professor Bernardo has a vast knowledge of the obscure beginnings of a lot of the evolutionary ideas and his tangents are frequently interesting.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Concern yourself mostly with the formulas and equations and how to apply them, otherwise general conceptual knowledge is sufficient.

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    It's an extremely interesting course if you are into evolutionary based material.

    Course highlights:

    I learned quite a bit about how evolution is seen everywhere. It comes into play with the way we eat, how viruses occupy hosts, and with our body's maximum capacity to produce oxygen and the effects that this has on us once we've surpassed our threshold.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Always go to class. Exams are very lecture-centered.
