    | Would highly recommend.

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    Professor Mackay is on par with my favorite leading educators in the field of Astronomy and Cosmology, among those are Lawrence Krauss, Brian Cox, Brian Greene, and Neil DeGrasse Tyson.

    Course highlights:

    I learned more about the formation of our solar system and the stellar processes that give birth and cause the death of stars. Among the four courses for the Minor in Astronomy, this course is the first baby step to understanding how relatively small our planet is on the solar system scale.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    You must show up to class if you don't have a decent background in Astronomy, and our Solar System. Take notes on important figures, and dates of important events that took place prior, during, and after the formation of our Solar System. This will provide a decent foundation for later discoveries and figures in Astronomy.
