    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course because it is interesting to see how we have evolved and how we are here today. I believe it's very important to know our history and this professor does an excellent job doing so.

    Course highlights:

    I learned more about the timeline of our history and ancestry. It is a good introduction to jumpstarting into science again with the discussions of DNA. Evolution is a fascinating process and we should all know how we are alive today.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    I would definitely study and go to class. Her classes are lecture and powerpoint based and everything she teaches is on the test. It will be quite easy if you study your notes from her powerpoints and lectures.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This class is extremely fun because Rollins is such a great professor. I took this class just for my GUR credits and ended up loving it. There's a lot of memorization involved in this class, but it definitely isn't dull. Definitely one of the best professors on Western's campus.

    Course highlights:

    I became way more interested in biological anthropology after this class. It's not something I'll pursue as a career, but I have a much better understanding of how the human species started. Also, I understand just how important teeth are thanks to this class. Professor Rollins is pretty clear during her lectures, and whenever she rambles is always relevant to the course material in one way or another.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Take thorough notes because Rollins does not post her lecture slides online. And I'm not just saying write down what's on the slides, write down what she says. I went through this class without even owning the textbook and earning an A at the end. In other words, much of what she says in class is relevant to the test. If you don't understand something, or are curious, do not hesitate to ask. She's always willing to help clarify something. Most importantly, go to her office hours or email her if you need help. She's also great about meeting outside her office hours if you can't make it during that time. One last thing, be thorough when writing the assignments, because they're important for the tests.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I absolutely loved this class. Alyson is the best lecturer I've had so far in college and all of the material she covers in this course is presented in an engaging way.

    Course highlights:

    Alyson brought casts of skulls that have been found, all from different ages.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Make sure to attend class! All of the material in the exams are thoroughly discussed in class.
