    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Professor Kelly has a passion for geology and it shows when he teaches. He keeps class interesting and usually pretty light hearted. He wants his students to succeed, while actually learning the material. He is willing to help on any assignment you might be stuck on. He prepares you for the tests as well, just go to class!

    Course highlights:

    I loved learning about glaciers and being able to know where rock formations came from. I learned that most of the rock formations that make utah famous were at one point buried miles under the earth! Thought that was pretty cool.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Honestly just go to class, take notes and ask questions. He does want you to have a text book, which comes in handy, but most of the stuff he goes over in class! Also make sure you have google earth downloaded on your laptop, you use that on a lot of assignments.

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    The Professor is absolutely hilarious! He conducts the course in a way that is relevant to you as a student which makes it so much easier to pay attention in class. He also has a good sense of style and he truly understand the stresses of being a college student.

    Course highlights:

    Professor Kelly took us on a field trip to Rock Canyon and showed up in person the rock formations we were learning about in class. He also has a few assignments throughout the semester that we use Google Maps for which was super interesting. I learned all about the History of the Earth and gained an appreciation of the study of rocks and those who study the Earth full time.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    GO TO CLASS! That is honestly the key to success. Sitting in class is not hard and he makes it super fun and I laughed at least three times a week just by his sense of humor. He is very kind and very relatable so do not be afraid to get to know him and create a personal relationship.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This is a great class and is taught by one of the greatest professors I have ever had so far. He makes geology very entertaining and allows the class to connect to geology.

    Course highlights:

    My favorite part of this course was actually memorizing the rock structures and studying about how the volcanoes erupt and have an affect on the areas surrounding. It was interesting to learn that plate tectonics is a huge part of what is physically happening to earth.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    Make sure you take good notes and pay attention in class because the professor gives hints on what to expect on the exams. Know plate tectonics because if you do not focus on it you will have a difficult time during the semester.
