    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    The class itself is very dry material, but the professor makes it very intriguing. His lively manner and innate desire to make others laugh brought the material to life.

    Course highlights:

    Going on field trips around the campus to show us different environmental changes happening in front of us.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    After every lecture go over the notes, so that when it comes time to the midterm of final you aren't cramming in all the information (it is a lot to do in one night!).

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend Andrew Fricker's Geography 5 class, People and the Earth's Ecosystems, because he is very good at keeping the students up-to-date with relevant current environmental news/events. He makes the class very interactive with guest speakers and field trips to actually touch and see the plants and environment for yourself. With these methods, Fricker successfully convinced me of today's environmental problems and how I can upkeep a sustainable lifestyle.

    Course highlights:

    Surprisingly, the textbook was one of the best parts of the course, with sections that tell you examples of how people in real life are building sustainability projects, inspiring me to do the same. The field trips to the botanical gardens and Sage Hill were beautiful and I never fully appreciated the plants I walk by every day at UCLA!

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    We had to do one group presentation about a current environmental problem that is mentioned in one of the lectures. For example, my group and I did Population Growth Measures in China. I recommend choosing something that means a lot to you, so that you can get the most out of this course!
