    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Professor Farriss has a lot of experience within the field of Astronomy, and has a way of making his students passionate about the subject in ways we didn't think were possible before taking the course. The content is a good challenge for those looking to learn about the history and basics of Astronomy.

    Course highlights:

    Throughout the semester, what I enjoyed most was participating in a trip to the university's observatory to look at Saturn's rings. Professor Farriss is good at letting students know when interesting and unique chances to observe astronomical events arise.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Pay attention during lectures! Most of the content is presented well enough that little review is needed from the textbook if good notes are taken.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Pretty easy, if you go to class and you take the weekly online tests, it all just makes sense. There isn't math involved really. It is mostly a conceptual class, only a few extra papers to write.

    Course highlights:

    I learned how the world words around me and I learned better how to study and understand things and take notes, which was good for my freshman year.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    If you are good at conceptual knowledge- take it. If you don't like regular work or showing up to class- don't take it. Get the ebook and don't get the free trial! You'll regret it Look closely on the syllabus, there is a requirement to go to the office hours at least once.

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course because the professor is friendly, helpful, funny and uses class time well.

    Course highlights:

    I learned about all the basics of astronomy. I enjoyed the parts about black holes and other unique features of the universe.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    I would make flash cards about all of the information you learn. And take extremely thorough notes, because he does not give you the Power Points with the words on them.
