    | Would not recommend.

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    The course claims to be an "environmental" economics class, but does not spend any time teaching environmental issues, dismissing them as externalities. The class instead focuses on conventional economics, obsessed with growth of efficiency and GDP, which ironically put us in an environmental crisis first place.

    Course highlights:

    I unfortunately did not learn much, as this was a review of my high school economics class. I plan to talk to this course to my advisor to see if it can be removed from the Environmental Sustainability Curriculum.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    Read the powerpoints and memorize them. Don't spend time on the book as it will never be used, except to review vocab. All the tests are multiple choice, so do a couple practice tests from any Intro. Econ and you will be fine as long as you are moderately familiar with all the terms and concepts.

    | Probably wouldn’t recommend.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I took Mark for Stat 1 and 2. Stat 2 was considerably more difficult and it was like learning another language.

    Course highlights:

    The class consists of 2 tests and 2 take-home projects,

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    so if you do poorly on one it is hard to catch back up.
