    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    While it's challenging and mandatory for my major, I love the course and am constantly learning new information about a subject that's interesting to me. It's an amazing feeling to finally get into the deep material necessary for my major and to continually be having fun while I'm learning about a topic I love!

    Course highlights:

    Basically, any piece of the body, I have to know it. What it does, where it connects, how the blood flows and where the nerves touch. My favorite portion is the lab, because I really get to get my feet wet and get hands on with the material, which helps me learn what I need to know, but is giving me new avenues to learn through.

    Hours per week:

    12+ hours

    Advice for students:

    Work hard!!! It requires a LOT of time dedicated to it because it is very difficult material, but finding a study group, using on campus resources, and overall staying focused, it's possible to do well, just don't get discouraged!

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    This class is notorious on campus for how rigorous and intensive it is. Definitely the hardest class I have taken, but well worth it as you learn how to study effectively and efficiently under pressure. A crucial course for graduate school preparation, especially with Dr. Rodriguez.

    Course highlights:

    You'll get all if the basic gross and microscopic anatomy you need to be successful in graduate school. VCU is one of the few undergraduate schools that offers an anatomy program that is this intensive for students making the graduate level course much easier to get through. You'll learn most everything you need to properly understand body structure and function which makes it easier to grasp movement mechanics.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    You cannot cram...you'll end up retaking the course otherwise. Study hard and study early and you should be okay. For me, repetition was key. Text readings and note writing helped while rewriting the notes helped to solidify information as well. Make use of open lab if you can, hands-on learning is crucial for the exams.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    This course was an excellent introduction into the study of the human body. It was rigorous, but if you put the required work into you get the grade you want. It was a stressful and hard but extremely rewarding course for me.

    Course highlights:

    My favorite part of the course was when we went through the body systems and learned the specific anatomy of each one. We learned a lot of physiology at the same time. By the end of the course I knew so much more than I could have expected to learn in that course.

    Hours per week:

    12+ hours

    Advice for students:

    Go to open lab for at least 1 hour every day. Go to SI. I recorded the lectures and listened to them in the car on the way to school, other people rewrote their notes the night after the lecture. Find study rituals that work for you and keep up with them for the entire semester.
