    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    It teaches a lot about how the human population affects our Earth and how we live here. It also exposes you to the many government organizations that have been created since we noticed a big problem with our water, air and land contaminations all over the world. Just look at China's smog and health effects it has on them to the vast plastics in our water that have now outnumbers the fish and live animals already in it before us.

    Course highlights:

    As I wrote a paper on the environment I will quote something from it where it will show you in brief on the basics we all learned in this class. "People used to burn their garbage way back in the early 1930 and 40s. I would say that it must have been done even earlier. They had to come up with better and better cremators, then they moved on to a must larger incinerators to keep up with all the garbage made by the people of the town, city and now in the metropolitan areas of the world. Once they realized that they could make energy, heat and electricity by burning to trash. The USA went through an Energy Crisis back in 1973 that is when things changed for the better. The landfills of yesterday had its purpose, but now with the current population growth we must look deeper and manage the waste better for all that live. In the past 25 years, however, non-disposal methods such as waste prevention and recycling have become more common." I hope that help understand better what we learned in this class...

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    Being in a ONLINE college, you don't have the physical interaction with each other including the teacher. When each class starts, Colorado Tech University ONLINE gives you a few days before each class starts so you can setup your calendar from the weekly assignments and requirements during the class. From Sunday to the next Sunday is considered a WEEK for the class and I plan out on how I will use each day to get what is needed to finish each week with the best I can do. You must been self paced and know ahead of time if there will be any concerns I might have so I can email the teacher the questions I might have for those concerns that has arisen, But for me since I move a lot, I can't afford to be placed in a building where the classroom existed to attend. The online schooling allows me to move around from state to state and continue without interruption,
