    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    Online course that only meets in person three times a semester. One of the in-person meetings is a wine and wine tasting (yes, I meant to type wine twice).

    Course highlights:

    In all honestly, although the exams were about random facts in the online lectures, I actually learned something about the chemistry of food (through osmosis, I guess).

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    Just keep up with the lectures as they are posted, as if you had to attend the lectures twice a week, and you will be a-okay.

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Make sure you study the graphs that they show you and have a general understanding of the key points to material taught.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    It is an online course, the content is split into topics with engaging and informative videos regarding diet, nutrition and myths about food. There are activities to help with your learning that are not graded, as well as short homework and review quizzes worth 20% of your grade total. The midterms are not cumulative which is convenient for an elective, and all the content has been interesting and relatable.

    Course highlights:

    We were given the history of the food business as well the history of certain foods and how they are made like cheese, wine and chocolate. The professors also introduce different myths about food and either support them or debunk them using scientific evidence. There is also an interesting topic on genetically modified foods and artificial additives in foods.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    It would be beneficial to have some background in science but the course overall is not too difficult. Keeping up with the videos is key because there are a lot of them and keeping track of the quiz due dates.
