    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Dr. Marianne Robertson makes this class worthwhile. She is extremely passionate about what she is teaching and cares for each individual student. She loves all animals and allows her ferrets to run around the room during lab. Learning information in class lectures does not feel like work at all. She makes the discussions enjoyable and the information talked about is easily absorbed and understood because of her fantastic explanations. Throughout the semester, there is a ton of information to learn and memorize. This shouldn't scare you away because it is so fascinating that you feel like you want to learn the information instead of feeling like you are forced to learn the information. You even get to take care of your own tarantula for the semester!

    Course highlights:

    I gained a whole new perspective on spiders. At the beginning, I thought they were creepy, scary organisms that bite you. That opinion was proved wrong and changed on the first day of class. I learned that the majority of spiders are harmless and misunderstood animals that provide extremely important benefits for the planet and human race. You learn about different families of spiders that live around you as well as classification of spiders. The most fun part of the course is collecting spiders around where you live and identifying them under a microscope. I learned so much information about different characteristics of different families, development of spiders, sexual behaviors and prey capture techniques of different spiders. The list of things learned goes on and on. I absolutely love this course and look forward to going to this class each and every day.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    In order to succeed in this course, you must keep up with the information and study it early and often. There is a ton of information and memorization. If you let it build up, then the workload may be overwhelming. Studying a little bit every day makes the information and course much more enjoyable. Another word of advice is to be enthusiastic in class and have fun. You definitely get out what you put into this class.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I highly recommend this course because it helps you overcome your fear by filling your brain with tons of knowledge. I was an arachniphobe when I began this course. But now I notice spiders everywhere and I am not scared!

    Course highlights:

    I got to take care of a tarantula, who I named Parsnip, for a whole semester. And also Dr. R is one of my all time favorite teachers. Her enthusiasm for this subject is contagious.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Just do it, even if you might be scared. Push yourself and it will help you overcome your fear of spiders.
