    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course because it is very thought stimulating and elightening.

    Course highlights:

    A definite highlight from this course was learning about evolution. I previously thought that evolution was some sort of controversy subject. I learned from this course that evolution is not a topic that is debated among the scientific community. Yet, many people of the general publick (including my previous self) think it is. I learned that there is a tremendous amount of evidence pointing towards the fact of evolution and that the people who are skeptical of it are either ignoring the facts or are biblical literalists. I also really enjoyed learning about the differences of religion and science.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Definitely put in the work for this course. Make sure to take plenty of thorough notes during lecture and to review the notes after class to really enable the information to stick. I would also mention that taking a biology class before this one would greatly benefit you because since this class is biological anthropology, it assumes you already know the basics about biology. Therefore, it is a tought class with plenty of information, but in my opinion it is worth the work and effort because it really makes you think and see the world differently.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend it because it covers a lot of subjects such as anatomy, biology, history, and chemistry. In fact, is one of the most versatile, deep, and interesting classes I've taken because you get so into it and be amazed by how much there is to learn.

    Course highlights:

    I honestly since I took this class I became more critical (pairing up with English 202) because it led me to the opportunity to read fun and very important books. "The Panic Virus" by Seth Mnookin showed deeper research on the links between vaccines and autism on childhood. This book is so far among the top 5 book I've read; however, it was only a part of the class since you have to be very active and critical on the things you read and the class itself (theory). I learned that the male pelvis is bigger compared to the female's pelvis; I also learned the human bone composition and other Homo's composition.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Study hard since it is a tough class. If it is a requirement for the ed plan, it won't matter because either you enjoy it or not! If you enjoy sciences you will love it, but if you don't, you will still love it because the way this savvy, experienced professor teaches is amazing!
