    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I gained a lot of background knowledge that I have been able to draw on in my real life experiences. As one would expect from an introductory course, no background in animal husbandry is necessary to succeed in this class. Take thorough notes during class because he does not make his PowerPoints available online. Yes, that means you have to show up to class in order to learn something. This is a great class for anyone thinking about pursuing an animal science major, or just looking to gain a little more knowledge about animals.

    Course highlights:

    We focused mainly on dogs, cats, cattle, sheep, swine, poultry, and horses. You will learn the technical names for each animal throughout their lifecycles (Cow, heifer, steer, mare, foal, broiler, pullet, sow, ewe, etc.). You will memorize their lifecycles, lengths of gestation, stages of estrus cycle, and colors of horses. He briefly touches on equine hybrids like mules and zebroids, which are kind of fun. This class is educational and entertaining because he has such a great personality, but still maintains and air of authority. Dr. Nichols asked several questions throughout our lessons that really encouraged the students to think deeper and actually form an opinion on many tough topics. One such question was, 'If one hundred dogs had to give their lives in order to cure cancer, how many of you would support that?' Of course, most students raised their hands. He then said, 'Now, what if one of those hundred dogs was yours? How many of you would still support it?' Dr. Nichols is the kind of professor that will help you grow as a member of society by encouraging you to know where you, personally, draw the line. What lengths would you go to in order to create a better quality of life for humans through the improvement of animal science?

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    To succeed in this course, I would recommend having an organized way of taking notes because you will be taking a lot of them. Have a large notebook or laptop with you to jot down notes and keep track of it. Make sure to review those notes regularly because there is a lot of memorization involved in this course. Most of it is easy to learn and remember as long as you put in the effort. There are weekly quizzes that will cover a few topics you will also see on the test. So keep track of those and use them as study tools.
