    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course because it provides useful information that can be used outside of the classroom such as STD awareness, contraceptives, and what affects reproductive health. This class is so much more than pregnancy and babies. I didn't think that I was going to get so much out of this course but I'm glad that I did.

    Course highlights:

    Learning information that I could apply in real life situations helped me to understand the material better. The most important thing I learned from this course is how to study. Studying the night before an exam or doing the bare minimum will not lead to a passing grade. This course has made me so much stronger as a student by helping me to get engaged with the information and learning it rather that simply regurgitating it on a scantron.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    DO NOT procrastinate! Coming from a past procrastinator, procrastinating in this class will lead to failure. Honestly, the long syllabus scared me off at first but because of it, I learned to complete the assignments and study in a timely manner to avoid cramming, doing assignments the last minute and stressing. I even ended up making an A and doing very well! Time management is key in this class. Learning to place ample study time during the week will help you a lot on the exams. It is very important not to miss class. Although podcasts are online, they don't cover the full material and a lot of her lectures contain vital information to miss. Finally, Do the exam study guides and podcasts, and utilize the worksheets! They honestly help a lot!

    | Would highly recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This course was very detailed, and the professor provided an unlimited amount of support and informative powerpoints to manuever you through the course.

    Course highlights:

    This was a biology course, in which it was very terminal meaning you really had to study the words and their meanings. Learning about both the female and male reproductive systems and how they work were the highlights of this particulsr course. I learned a lot about viral and bacterial STDS, birth defects, pregnancy and birth, both reproductive systems, etc.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    I believe if you are considering a science course that is not biology, but it is biology related, then this is the right course for you.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Most students think this course is only about sex, but you'll learn so much more about your own body and the different things that can help or hurt it. You'll be exposed to an array of topics that include STDs and what they really do to your body, the hormones that assist your body in reproductive functions, birth defects and factors that contribute to them, contraceptives and their functions, and so much more.

    Course highlights:

    In my opinion, one of the highlights of this course was really learning and understanding the many different hormones that affect the body. I honestly never knew how many hormones took a role in something as simple as breastfeeding. I also found the birth defects topic interesting, because I learned that they stem from chromosomal defects and genetic mutations and even such things as recreational, therapeutic, and environmental factors.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Stay on top of your work! In this course you will learn a lot of different information, so it's really important that you focus on studying and understanding the material rather than memorizing certain information for assignments and tests. Flashcards really helped me study, especially for exams because it was an easy way of categorizing all the information. Don't hesitate to talk to the professor outside of class if you need help understanding something. I would also recommend creating or joining study groups, because your classmates may have a more helpful technique of learning and understanding the material.
