    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    The course talks about the structures of galaxies and of the universe. It's a great science course because it really blows your mind and keeps you engaged.

    Course highlights:

    The highlight of the course is developing scientific knowledge about how big the universe is. The course is philosophical and scientific so even when it gets math-heavy it is still entertaining.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Go to class, it will be tempting to skip the lecture but class lectures will help you understand the homework way more. Don't be discouraged by the math, it isn't difficult math.
