    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Morrison is incredibly well-learned in his field, and isn’t afraid to share that knowledge with you. The material isn’t very in-depth, but it’s broad and gives you a lot to think about. The lab is so much fun for me (I might be biased because I want to work with birds as a career), and it requires more work than the lecture. There are about 4 writing assignments per semester that get you into reading some scientific literature. Not the most fun, but I learned a lot from those, and they’re not hard. Overall, I would recommend 100%. Dr. Morrison is a fun teacher with many stories.

    Course highlights:

    Not only did I learn everything about birds in a broad sense, I learned how to identify specific birds. I also learned how to dive into scientific literature with critical eyes and analyze studies. I also learned how to cite scientific sources.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Take notes (Morrison doesn’t use PowerPoints or anything, he just talks—but it’s entertaining) and review those notes the day you take them. Also keep up with the lab work. There are a lot of birds to know. Get into your field guide; it will help you immensely with identifying tricky birds like sparrows and warblers.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Dr. Long is a good professor! She goes very quick but covers good information and your never surprised on tests because she emphasizes important information.

    Course highlights:

    I learned about how birds evolved, how they survive in many environments, and what aspects of them we have still yet to understand.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    Take notes, record lectures (she goes fast and doesn't post slides), and read through those notes a few times before the tests.
