    | Would recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This is a very good course to take if you need a science requirement and the though of chemistry or biology scares you. This is a great course as a beginner into all of the biology classes. You will learn a lot in this course and it is very straight forward but you do still need to study the study guide that is exactly what is on the test. If you do that you will be fine.

    Course highlights:

    You learn many things in this course for instance you go into depth on the punnett square and how it was created. That leads you to go into depth on the different blood antigens. You also learn about the evolution of the world and the people/animals in it. Charles Darwin is a huge character in this course. The knowledge learned in this course it good information to know for life. Knowing where your species descended from, how we advanced and where we are now.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Just because this course is straight froward don't take it lightly. People still fail this course, so if you're going to take this class make sure you'll willing to pay attention and study.

    | Would highly recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    One of the general education requirements is to take at least one biological science. I decided to take biological anthropology because the class seemed different from my experience from high school biology.Anthropology is the study of people and so this class was the study of people from a biological standpoint. From the beginning of time, neolithic era, and so on.

    Course highlights:

    Professor Kinkella made the lectures engaging. There was a lot of information to take in every week but Professor Kinkella explained everything in a way that made the information easy to understand and remember. He would sprinkle the lectures with anecdotes from personal experiences as an archaeologist and how it related to that day's topic. Yes I learned about the basics of biology but this class also gave me insight into a field i would have never thought about pursuing.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    It you are interested in this course and with this professor, then I would suggest always attending lecture, take more notes than what is provided from the power points, and compile your own study guides fro the three exams as there is no formal homework assignments to be done.

    | No strong feelings either way.

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend it for the fact that it's an easy course as long as you read the course material, and attendance isn't mandatory.

    Course highlights:

    I loved learning about the primates behavior and how closely related to humanoids they are.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Just read the chapters that are assigned in the syllabus and mark the important vocab words from lectures.
