    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this class because it is not a difficult class. Professor Rybczyk is a very funny and intelligent man. Everytime you go to class, you will be entertained and become so much more knowledgeable about the environment. There is no textbook required, which is great financially. The class consists of power points, but beware, you will not understand a whole lot if you don't go to class. His classes are lecture based, and to be honest, his classes are fun and he'll offer extra credit (in-class only) occasionally. There isn't really a point in missing it. You will also be expected to have read the articles because they will be on the test. But, that isn't very difficult; they are pretty easy reads.

    Course highlights:

    From this course, I learned a lot more about the environment. I had previously taken a CHS Environmental Science class in high school, but I didn't really learn or retain anything from that class. Taking this class I feel more knowledgeable about the environment. Because of this class, I am planning on become an environmental studies major.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    There are only three things I would suggest for you to do: read the articles, go to class and take notes, and study for the tests. If you do just that, you are guaranteed to get an A in class. The readings aren't that difficult, so you should be fine. Even if you didn't do the readings, you honestly should be okay; they're pretty easy to figure out; but I wouldn't suggest it if you want anything above a C. The readings come with questions for you to use to study; all those questions are always on the test. Make sure you go to class because anything said in class can be on the test. And study, just set aside a day or two to go over the readings and the study guide. Do all this, and you will be fine.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This class is online, but John makes it seem like an in class lecture experience! He puts a lot of effort into the weekly power points, including voice overs and detailed photos and info graphics to really solidify the information we are supposed to be learning about. This class was super informative and a blast to take!

    Course highlights:

    We learned about common environmental science issues including, tragedy of the commons, population growth and degradation, pollution, the green revolution, etc.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Be ready to work, this isn't an online course hag you can just breeze through! It requires brain power and the willingness to sit and listen and learn about our environment.
