    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course because it is an elective class. It gives you a chance to learn about something new even if you don't have a major involving astronomy or space. It leaves you wondering what else could be out there but at the same time it teaches you what is out there.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights of this class was learning about space and then taking what you learn and going outside and looking in the sky. Actually seeing all the amazing things that you probably just overlooked before because you were not aware that they were there. I learned there's more to this world than they eye can see

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Make sure you stay on top of your homework. Also really use the practice tests because they can really help you improve your grade on your actual tests because the material isn't to different from what you have studied.

    Course highlights:

    The only other downside is the parking is inefficient,

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    students basically park the farthest away from the school, in the stadium parking lot basically. Oh and when there is football games at the stadium students have to be out by 5pm or get towed.

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    This class was very interesting and the teacher was nice as well as his TAs. The tests were a little difficult, but the overall experience in the class was nice. If you have the slightest interest in universe, I recommend that you take this class. You don't even have to be a science major or minor to take it!

    Course highlights:

    The highlights of this class included how the teacher would relate our lessons of the day with Futurama clips. Overall, You learn so many new things, including the basics on how to calculate the magnitude and luminosity of a star. My favorite lesson was about how much more objects there are in the universe and let alone in our Milky Way. We were even shown a clip that gave us the idea that Earth is the size of a grain of sand or smaller compared to the rest of the universe. So imagine the size of us humans compared to the universe!

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Attendance is key to success. Make sure to study every little detail that you can in preparation for the exams. After an exam go to the office hours to see what you got wrong for the final exam. Finally don't be afraid to ask questions.
