    | Would highly recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course to everyone, especially with Professor Brown. This geospatial sciences class focuses on learning the program ArcGIS (a popular geographic information systems program). GIS is a program becoming very prominent in many majors surrounding the realm of environment science, for the government using census data, the military, and so many other places. Professor Brown's class is organized in a manner where each week, the assignments build upon themselves allowing your knowledge to progress. She is also extremely willing to help her students, she's legitimately the nicest woman too to chat with.

    Course highlights:

    I learned the basics on making maps and doing geospatial analyses using data that was either readily available or for data that I had to search for. There is a final project in which each student has to present on a topic that interests them and use the data "to tell a story."

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    My biggest advice would be to do the weekly assignments as you need to understand the basics taught about before you're able to continue throughout the course.
