    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    The professor is super easy to get along with and the course has a lot of hands on activities and field trips! The professor does everything he can to help you out as well.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights of this course were definitely the field trips and labs. I enjoyed those as I like learning hands on. I learned a lot about marine animals and plants.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    I would say this is a good course if you actually study for it. There are assignments you need to do before you come to class every day. Be expected to put a lot of time and effort in to the class. It's not that it's necessarily hard, it's just a lot of info you need to learn.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    For students are really interested in an introduction to Marine Biology and about the topics they will be focusing on, then this course will be extremely helpful if deciding whether or not Marine Bio is for you

    Course highlights:

    The highlights are definitely the field trips to see the concepts from class begin applied outside, it also depends on a students interests. The marine mammals section was the highlight for me since I strive to help endangered marine mammals as my job.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Keep up with the work in the class and always have time to study.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    The class content is overall very interesting. Though much of it was a review for me because of my marine bio class in high school, it was much more in detail. You learn a lot, which is nice.

    Course highlights:

    I personally enjoyed the marine ecology portion the best. I just found it really cool and interesting.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    There are lots of very specific questions asked on tests, so you really need to review the lecture slides to be sure that you have all the information. Do not wait until the last minute to study-there is a lot of memorization.
