    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Professor Jeffery Kraczek did an amazing job of taking something that can be very complicated, and simplifying it so that we beginners could understand the material! It has been a year since I took the course and I still remember things she taught us every time I go look at the stars. Great professor, fascinating material!

    Course highlights:

    The highlights of this course were the planetarium days, and the mini projects and class participation activities that helped solidify the knowledge through practice. I learned so much about the why of our universe and how it all works together.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    Participate in class, do the workbook activities, and really apply yourself. This can be a tough class if you try to do nothing, but if you really do your part and work with the people around you, it will be a mind-opening course that will cause you to look up at the stars with much more wonder than ever before.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I absolutely loved this course. Professor Moody was so engaging and his lectures were easy to understand. The material we learned in class was amazing and it has allowed me to go outside and know what I am seeing in the sky. The wealth of knowledge I received was immense, and it has been amazing to learn more about space, our solar system, and what is out there in the sky.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights of this course were the Friday lectures in the Planetarium. Being able to see the things we had learned in the class was amazing We learned about our solar system, the stars, and other objects found in the many galaxies in space.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    I would tell them to really take advantage of all the material Professor Moody posts online. I would also tell them to begin the​ observing projects immediately, as those were immensely enjoyable.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This was an amazing course. I learned so much about the stars and how different aspects of gravity and light work.

    Course highlights:

    The best part for me was learning the different constellations and seeing how the planets moved.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Be prepared to learn some things in the dark, looking up at the viewing screen. Make sure you are rested because it was really easy to fall asleep once the lights went out. Also, make sure to attend multiple screenings and TA reviews to prepare for tests. They really helped.
