    | Probably wouldn’t recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    If you're looking for an easy GE, this probably isn't a good fit for you. This course requires a lot of memorization: 4 large cladograms and insignificant dinosaur traits. Also you don't actually learn about dinosaurs until after the midterm.

    Course highlights:

    Learning about the different dinosaurs was pretty interesting, and the labs were interactive and intriguing. One of the labs actually had a T-Rex skull fossil for us to examine.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Be ready to study the cladograms and dinosaur novelties because Dan Luna pays attention to detail in his exams... but at least they're multiple choice.

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    This course was an excellent choice for my first semester of college. It was engaging, interesting and the labs were lots of fun.

    Course highlights:

    Interacting with real fossils in class and in the lab & learning a great deal about the history of the earth as a whole-- beyond just the time in which dinosaurs inhabited it. I gained a better prospective on the history of earth and the events that had to take place in order for us to exist.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    This course is a great GE and is a perfect choice for your first semester, not too much work but also not boring.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    It is an incredibly interesting course that explores specifically three eras of life on earth when dinosaurs lived. There is a lot of memorization because there are so many dinosaurs and everyone has distinct features, however, everything is introduced at a good pace. The lectures were also very interesting! Dr. Luna sometimes plays funny videos to explain concepts that will be, or have been, learned that day.

    Course highlights:

    I learned how to read Cladograms which was incredibly vital to succeeding in the class. I learned when specific features appeared on certain ancestors and how species changed over time. Learning when features we might still see today were first seen on ancient life forms, and how these life forms have changed to become animals we see today was very interesting.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    If you take the time to memorize concepts as the quarter progresses you will definitely succeed! Also, do not be afraid to ask questions! Some material might very confusing but Dr. Luna and the TA's are more than happy to answer any questions!
