    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Ever since I was a little girl I have been fascinated with the vastness of outer space and I have always had a thirst for more knowledge about it. As soon as I started PSEO the first class I took was this Astronomy course in hopes of quenching my never ending thirst. I was excited to attend the class every Wednesday and I would stare in awe at all the photographs and notes slides my professor shared with the class. I have never felt such a passion for a course before and I miss the days where I was sitting in the desk learning about our universe.

    Course highlights:

    I learned some of the big pictures about how the world works and as a result it opened up my heart and eyes for astronomy. My professor was very passionate for his job and he did a phenomenal job at relaying the information to my peers and I. I believe this class was not just about regurgitating facts and information but it was about gaining a new perspective on the world and I'm thankful for that because it has changed my life forever.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    You have to have the passion to learn, if you're a student who is just there and you don't have the intention to gain any knowledge then I don't think you'll get a lot out of this course. There isn't many assignments so this is a very independent course and it is up to the student to do the reading and take notes so they're successful on the tests. The tests ask for your knowledge on how things work and the overall cohesive pictures of subjects rather than specific facts.
