    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this class because the professor is extremely enthusiastic and makes the lectures interesting. He makes the content easy to understand and is well organized. He sets out his rules in a concise and easy way to understand. Homework is relatively easy if you pay attention to deadlines. Overall would recommend because it is an interesting class, the work is easy but rewarding and the professor is understanding and helps students with any questions.

    Course highlights:

    We learned about evolution, the possible ancestors of humans and other apes. We had interesting discussions and lectures about several topics that revolve around evolution and human ancestors. The class provides interesting details about fossils and many other archeological finds that have been discovered throughout history.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    People that are considering this course, like any class, should always read the syllabus for the class. Keeping due dates in mind is also very important. Just because the professor accepts the homework anytime before the end of the semester, does not mean it is ok to put off the homework until the last minute.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    This course is part of the required course for general education. This class catches students off guard with how much it goes into biology, but I think it helps us understand how biology and things like genentics and race work.

    Course highlights:

    The key points of this course are around natural selection, how genes are passed down and a little bit into human evolution.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    Be ready to dive into biology, a good portion of the class is about genetic inheritance, mutation, cell division and it is much more about biology than people anticipate.

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    The course of Anthropology 101 touches upon theories of evolution, biology, and primates including humans ancestors. This course along with the professor allowed for thought provoking discussions and provided a significant amount of insight of what physical anthropology is about.

    Course highlights:

    This class was extremely interesting to take because it opens your mind to what may have happened in the past and provides the chance to question past knowledge that you thought you knew. This class really helped explain some aspects of biology such as some basic functions of cells that i didn't quite understand before. It sets you up really well for other classes regarding evolution and primates.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Listen closely to what the teacher says and make sure to take notes on his explanations not just what he writes on the board. The book isn't a must have but is a terrific source for when you don't understand certain key points.
