    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This course was so much fun! I was really worried at first being an Early Childhood Studies student but the proff makes the information so exciting and interesting. And if you put effort into wanting to understand what is happening in the universe that we live in and beyond this is a great class to take. It may seem hard at first but once everything starts to come together and make sense it is really interesting. I am terrible at math and science but I am keeping all the notes to read over and learn more... I wouldn't do that with any other class. I recommend this class! Its not super easy but it becomes easier and easier as you go.

    Course highlights:

    You learn about galaxies, the sun, the birth, death and life of a star, black holes, extraterrestrials and so so much more! I came out of this course with a new appreciation for space! I would even talk about it to my friends and family because it's honestly that interesting!

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    GO TO CLASS!!! There are no readings... she doesn't post notes... so basically write down whats on the slides and its really not that much and then just listen and learn and your golden. I got an 85% in that class with zero science or math background and really enjoyed it! 2 multiple choice tests and one assignment.
