    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This class is extremely interesting! Knowing the history behind humans and how evolution has made us into how we are today is so crazy.

    Course highlights:

    For me, it was being able to be hands on with actual skull replicas of ancient humans! Being hands on with objects like that helps you fully understand the topic. Learning about how to differentiate between a male and a female skull, what type of skull/human was really interesting!

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Flashcards were my lifesaver during this course. There is a lot of information, and my instructor went relatively fast through lectures. Also, study groups to swap information was extremely beneficial for me as well!

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I had to take a biology course, and I hated biology and didn't want to have to take a lab on top of a lecture. That is why I chose this class in the first place. In the end, however, I am glad I chose it because I found a new interest and even started thinking about entering the anthropology field. While I've decided on a different career, the interest is still there and I would even take this class again.

    Course highlights:

    I learned how you can tell a lot of stuff just by looking at a human's bones--what sex they were and how old they were when they died, their health condition, which region they lived in, etc. Because it was a biology course, there was a lot of review about basic biology, such as genetics.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    I recommend taking this course over the basic biology class because a basic biology class will probably be just a review of biology that you have learned in high school. Biological anthropology would be better to take because you get a biology review and you also get to learn a lot of other stuff that not many other classes offer.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    It was a very informative and fun course. I enjoyed it a lot and the teacher taught the course well. The amount of homework isn't overbearing and you can have plenty of time to finish it.

    Course highlights:

    We learned the basics of evolution and the pattern of human evolution through time. We got to see how evolution worked on a physical and biological scale. I learned for the first time in my life how evolution really works.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    My Advice for students is to stay on task. This class is an easy class to get through with a really good grade if you pay attention and do what you need to for the homework and tests. I would not recommend taking it in the morning if you're not a morning person because the class contains a lot of lectures.
