    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Professor Parikh was extremely knowledgeable and easy to understand. The flow of the course keeps you interested and exposes you to the many topics that can be covered under the Anthropology umbrella.

    The highlight of the course was the variation taught, nothing was in depth however this was not negative it peaked your interest and exposed you to other fields of study.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Notes notes notes! The course will require you to take notes as the subjects can change and the flow of the class continues to move.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Professor Mannen is an amazing instructor, her lectures are fun and interesting. She is helpful if you need help or advice.

    Course highlights:

    The beginning of the course mainly focuses on Basic Biology and evolution theories that will be incorporated with the rest of the chapters. The rest of the chapters focuses on evolution and different hominid sapiens.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    Make sure to read the chapters in great detail, take good notes, and if something is unclear, do not hesitate to ask your instructor.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I loved Dr.Gibson the course work was extremely fascinating and as a professor he was incredibly endearing.

    Course highlights:

    Most of the coursework focused on the protohumans, the eras in which they lived, what evolutionary traits survived and why, genetics, genetic research, excavations, Some biology involving genetics, names of the series of protohumans, as well as the geography of the time periods surrounding them, and climate change.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Memorizing key points is the key most of them are in the power points but anything he gets excited about explaining will also be on tests. Oh and he curves the test scores so have fun being mad as the A student (All in good humor not bullying those students have the best notes)
