    | Would highly recommend.

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    I highly recommend this course for anyone who wonders deeply about the life beyond planet Earth. The topics covered in class are very interesting! Also, the professors teaching this course are more interactive in this about 800 student class than some 40 student classes I have had.

    Course highlights:

    The highlight of this course was that we are made up of stars. I learned a lot about our solar system, the Sun and other stars in galaxies beyond ours. Also, you will learn on what these celestial objects are made up of and briefly cover the topic of potential life beyond our planet.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    If you have a genuine interest in astronomy - do not think twice to choose this course. If not, do not take it because many say that it is a birdie. A course being easy is very subjective and highly depends on your interests.

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    This is a good course to complete a breadth requirement, as other courses for the mathematical and physical universe breadth requirement are bit tougher. This course is interesting, yet has concepts that are easy to grasp. I recommend this course because of its interesting, yet simple concepts that would fulfill the breadth requirement for every student.

    Course highlights:

    Planet compositions, space time, terminology, astronomical developments and technology, areas of research, origins of living things and the universe, blackholes, asteroids and comets, natural phenomena

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    Attend lectures, do the readings, attend tutorials, and do practice exams
