    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Laboratory keeps you interested because each week builds on itself. There are lab quizzes every week, and in lecture Feldman has quick slides at the beginning of class called Microbe Minutes that end up on the exams. The exams are straight forward, and if you focus on her lectures then you will do great.

    Course highlights:

    I thought that learning about different microbes was fun and made the class more interesting. For me, lab was the best part because it would follow the previous week's lab. For example, we would use different types of agar and plate unknown and known bacteria cultures. Then, using those cultures we made gram stains and eventually worked up to trying to identify our bacteria strain.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    You definitely need to take notes and while there are not many lab report write ups, the ones that there are need to be well written because they count for a lot. Make sure you stay focused in lab especially because since each week builds upon the last, if you messed up you may have skewed data and therefore inaccurate findings.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    This course is demanding and it requires the upmost dedication to studying and discovering new study methods to really grasp all course material.

    Course highlights:

    I learned about bacterial and archaic species and mechanisms to discovering these cultures in the lab. I learned about differentiating characteristics of different types of each.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Pay attention the entire class and take very descriptive notes. Study the microbe minutes and be very vigilant during lab. Make sure to take great lab notes and study for the lab quizzes.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would definitely recommend this course to individuals in science and non-science related majors. Its a course that opens your mind and makes you question your surroundings. This course speaks about many topics from microbes to antibiotic resistance.

    Course highlights:

    This course allows you to apply what you learn to the real world. It gives you knowledge about different microbes that are living inside and outside of our bodies, such as E. coli or Staphylococcus aureus. It teaches you where bacteria grow, what they eat, and how they spread. Additionally this course highlights the new era of antibiotic resistance, which is becoming very controversial. Furthermore, this course allows you to apply what you learn to real life scenarios where you diagnose patients, which would be relevant for students in the medical field.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Study the powerpoint slides, may seem short, but there is a lot of information and many questions come from there. Do not wait until last minute to study, as with any course, it piles up. Ask questions, the professor's love their job, and part of their job is to answer your questions, therefore do not be afraid to be curious. Read the LAB AHEAD OF TIME, make sure you are familiar with what you will be doing in lab because it will help you answer the lab questions.
