    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend Dr. Camanns course because she is so knowledgeable and makes talking about rocks very interesting. She has very detailed slideshows and is always willing to help and answer questions. We did a lot of in class labs and even some outdoor labs that allowed students to walk out of the class with some hands on experience.

    Course highlights:

    Dr. Camann took the whole class on a trip to Red Rocks Amphitheater and showed us a hands on geologic experience. We were able to see firsthand how to evaluate sediment deposits and how the front range came to be. Even for those in my class that weren’t pursuing a career in Geologic Sciences found the formation of the Rockies and the uplift of Red Rocks fascinating. This shows that the course is tailored to all types of degrees and welcomes anyone willing to learn.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    If you're considering this course then be prepared for long lectures and a lot of reading. In order to do well on tests you'll need to put in about 6-8 hours of studying, especially with the rock identification tests. Ellie provides online quizzes for practice which can be very helpful since she pulls some of those questions and uses them for tests.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend taking this class with Dr. Camann because she is so knowledgeable and she absolutely loves geology just as I do. Ususally when I tell people that I love rocks they give me a weird look like I just asked them to help hide a body, but when I talked to Ellie about my passion she helped guide me through my studies and put me on the right path.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Always do your reading as well as the online quizzes. Dr. Camann pulls a lot of her test answers from the online quizzes. Also find study buddies because that can make all the difference since her classes are heavy on lecture and while writing you can't always catch everything. If you go to every class and do your reading you'll do just fine.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course and professor for anyone entering Earth-based stem programs. It is an arduous course, but highly rewarding

    Course highlights:

    I learned the basic mechanics of how the Earth functions as a whole, as well as many of the rocks, minerals, and common elements.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Read a chapter ahead of class, taking book-specific notes. Once you are in class, expand on those notes because she has lecture-only material.
