    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I really enjoyed learning about environmental science. This is an intro class, so it skimmed over many topics, but you learn a lot none-the-less. It was intriguing to learn about what is going on with our environment today and ways that you can help battle environmental problems as an individual. The science behind pollution and other topics was also very interesting.

    Course highlights:

    The highlight of this course was probably Professor Van De Grift's humor. His lightheartedness helped the class be engaged and also helped the class to not leave depressed after an intense topic such as climate change, fracking, and animal agriculture.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    I would advice students to attend every class. There was only a couple of tests and no homework to cushion your grade. There are no study guides for the exams, so make sure to take good notes and to not miss any class. If you happen to miss class, I highly recommend that you get the notes from a classmate.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Professor Van De Grift was one of my favorite professors! He is very engaging and intelligent. It is apparent that he is passionate about what he is teaching. I learned a lot in his class and enjoyed it!

    Course highlights:

    Some of the highlights were professor Van De Grift’s humor and also the shocking documentary that was shown in class, Gas Land. Van De Grift somehow is able to make a heavy, serious topic easy to learn about with his humor and in-depth knowledge of the topic.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    I recommend not skipping any classes. Although Van De Grift did not take attendance, missing one day will jeopardize your grade on the test because his exams have information that you can only get from his lectures.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    This course was fascinating! I learned so much about where to live and how to live just because of this course. Professor Andrew Evans incorporated his everyday life in his lectures and it helped to understand the environmental science is always all around us.

    Course highlights:

    I learned so much about plate tectonics, the Carbon, Water, Phosphorus, and Nitrogen Cycles.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Study, study, study is definitely the key thing here. Make flash cards of vocabulary words and take notes out side of the class. This helped so much!
