    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.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course for student that seek a more detailed understanding of the Microbiology world. This course encompasses a review of basic biology such as reproduction and basic cell structure, but focuses more on bacteria and viruses. Taking this class will give you real world applications on how micro-bacteria and viruses play a very important role in our everyday lives.

    Course highlights:

    One of the highlights of this course for me was the micro-minutes. Although these 5 micro-minutes for each exam added extra material, this gave me a way to learn about how specific micro-bacteria affect the food we eat, the sicknesses we acquire and the advances in medicine that were made. Another highlight for me was how the professor would bring in a guest lecture before each exam to talk about their research and their contribution to the micro-biology world. One of my favorites was a micro-biology professor who studied bacteria and dairy products.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    DO NOT SKIP Class, although she provides power point slides, she goes into greater detail on each slide in class and those details are key for her tricky exam questions. I would advise students to stay on top of the lecture material. Dr. Rossi speeds through power points during class and you often hardly have time to take notes. I recommend taking notes on the actual power point slides because otherwise you may get confused.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Although this course is known for its difficulty at UCONN, it is one of the more interesting science courses that I have taken in my college career. I assumed that i'd be learning about microbes and bacteria and not find much of an interest in the topics, but once I began the course, I was immediately intrigued. You learn a vast majority of topics and as long as you go to lecture, take notes, and make flashcards/charts for the information, you are bound to do much better than you'd expect. She is a wonderful professor and wants to see her students succeed.

    Course highlights:

    Learning about germs, disinfectants, antiseptics, and other cleaning products allowed me to take this material outside of the classroom. As a college student living on my own, there was no better time to learn about cleaning solutions. This helped me better understand when to use a specific solution, depending on if its for your skin or an object, and depending on what germs and bacteria you are trying to kill. The information taught in this class became very useful to me as someone who likes to stay clean and sanitary!

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Absolutely go to lecture and take notes. Focus on what she specifically goes over and emphasizes, and make charts for the microbes that you learn about during "microbe minutes." Using flashcards will help tremendously and she provides you with many study tools.
