    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    For the General education requirement I think it is better then any other course that is offered. It is very interesting to learn about all things going on around us. I will say that there are very boring days in class, so if you struggle to focus it may not be the fit for you.

    Course highlights:

    I gained an appreciation of how things in this world came to be! It is fascinating how they would describe how things formed while on field trips.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    I wish I would have read the book more... I thought doing the homework would be enough to get the grade I wanted. Everything I learned was paying attention in class but I could have done so much better had I looked at my book.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Physical geography gives a deeper understanding of the earth and it's history, and what impact humans have had. Talking about what's the difference between global warming, climate change, and the ozone layer--they are all related, but not the same thing--gets a conversation going about how you can influence the world around you. Also, it's really fun to talk about natural disasters and why they happen in the first place.

    Course highlights:

    I learned all about air currents and how they relate to thunderstorms, rain shadows, humidity, tornadoes and hurricanes. I also have learned about plate tectonics and why volcanoes are in the places they are, and where and how to build a home that is earthquake proof. Currently learning about earth's surface water, stream evolution, and the rock cycle.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Actually show up to class. A power point won't put into plain words what a professor can, and be humorous at the same time. Actually take the time to review notes every week, it'll stick better than cramming before a test.
