    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This class is exciting for people who like to learn about earth processes and going on hikes. The professor gives many examples in class to help stick vocabulary in your memory. The lab is once a week and includes two field trips in the woods not far off campus. Lab consists of mostly group work classifying specimens of minerals and rocks. You will also learn about mountains, volcanoes, and earthquakes along with other natural events. This class satisfies core seven for your mandatory general education courses.

    Course highlights:

    I learned about how atomic structure of minerals and rocks effect the apparent physical aspects. I also learned about the rock cycle in depth including how mountains, continents, volcanoes, and bodies of water form on earth. Did you know the mountains move every year? How about that most volcanoes are under water? But the most exciting part is walking through the woods with you lab partners examining rocks and being able to tell them what they are composed of and how they got there.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Learn the vocabulary very early and watch crash cores videos on youtube.com. The vocabulary is the most difficult in geology because all three rock types have there own words for similar properties. The best way to learn vocabulary is by making flash cards and forming a study group. Also, the professor tells you that you do not have to read the text book, but the people who do are the ones that score above average on tests.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I took this course in my very first college semester. I would recommend this class to anyone majoring in any natural science. I am an environmental studies major and this class truly inspired me to pursue my passion. My professor was so passionate about what she did it made the subject so much more interesting and really enjoyable. I never knew one of my favorite classes would be all about rocks!

    Course highlights:

    This course taught many things about the Earth and the environment. I learned new issues I never knew were happening, such as depleting aquifers and rocks that changes in the Earth. The professor made this subjects seem so real and wanted her students to see something had to be done. She used her power to really inform her students about real life problems.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Study for your test is the best advice. this course is a lot of memorization. This is made easier with taking good notes and really listening to what the professor has to say. Treat everything as important and attend your class, you never know what you may find really interesting.
