    Course highlights:

    I gained a thorough understanding of the fundamentals of microbiology.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    This course is highly recommended for students who are gearing towards a career in the healthcare industry or simply have an interest in biology. It help students link the connection between microorganisms: bacteria, viruses, Achaea, fungi and its effects on the human body. I specifically recommend this course because it gives you a broad overview of microorganisms, their life cycle and the environment in which they live in. Knowing the different kinds of diseases and illnesses each organism can cause is vital to prevention.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights of this course was participating in the laboratory experiments where I learned the proper lab techniques and safety tips. In lab we studied very small life forms, including bacteria, viruses, and fungi. These life forms live everywhere — in the soil, in the air, in the water, and even inside animals. Many of these life forms are so small that they cannot be seen by the naked eye therefore using a microscope was necessary. Viewing the microbes under the microscope was extremely fundamental, it gave me an opportunity to be hands-on during the course. In lab we tested the susceptibility of a microbial species against different antibiotic agents and chemicals, I learned that a microbe can become resistant to an antibiotic or chemical that it was once susceptible to if overly used.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    It is important to keep up with the readings and assignments. If you have questions, ask! Form study groups so that you’re not alone. This course is very challenging, in order to do well you must be proactive in class by participating. Go over the chapters before class, this will give you an idea of what will be covered during lecture and help you generate questions to ask during or after class. Order your text books and school supplies before the course starts. If you’re considering this course be prepared to think critically, this teacher in particular will encourage and prepare you to think like future physicians, Nurses, Microbiologist etc. It’s definitely not an easy course by any means but, it’s worth the challenge. You will learn so much!
