    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Dr. Greengrove is fantastic at simplifying complex scientific concepts, and is more than willing to put in extra time with you if you need it. Although this course is part of the Environmental Studies and Environmental Science program, I would recommend it to non science majors as well, as it will answer many idle questions you've had about how the world around you works.

    Course highlights:

    Wind currents, ocean currents, oceanography, geology.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Although you don't need to be especially great at math to succeed in this course, it helps if you are comfortable with it.

    Course Overview:

    It is fun and educational. He always finds a way to make learning fun and is always there to help you with any questions you have. His way of teaching is different from other teachers I have had but it is different in a memorable way. His way of teaching helps me to remember what I have learned while attending his class.

    Course highlights:

    The most memorable moment in this course was when we filmed a video on beach erosion and won! It not only was a very fun experience but it also taught me a lot about beach erosion.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Always do your work and study! If you know the information being taught the class will be very fun and helpful!
