    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    Dr. Webster was a fantastic teacher! We had a small class size (7 students), and we ended up with a great introduction to some complex and interesting material.

    Course highlights:

    I learned a great deal about how to approach material I didn't understand, through lab investigations and a focus on parsing difficult scientific articles.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    Be careful not to underestimate this course's workload! It's easy to fall behind if you leave labs and readings until the last minute; they always took longer than I expected to finish.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    This course taught students the concepts of astrophysics and allowed us to use astronomy software programs to mathematically test the theoretical principles with observational data.

    Course highlights:

    The best lab was using a program to analyze galaxies in different wavelengths. By comparing spiral and elliptical galaxies in UV, IR, and radio wavelenths (from real telescope images) we can understand more about their formation, structure, and evolution.

    Hours per week:

    12+ hours

    Advice for students:

    Work on the labs ahead of time so that if you get stuck, you can ask at tutorial or in class before it is due. Ask lots of questions in class about the lectures to engage in discussions and learn the material best.
