    | Would highly recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This course was extremely enlightening and informative. Each class period began with student presentations that covered information from the assigned reading. A group discussion, overseen by Professor Graney, would follow and allow every student's question to be voiced. The Professor was extremely open to questions and supported his answers with primary sources and experience.

    Course highlights:

    Through this course, I gained a better understanding of the importance of going to the original source for information. Professor Graney illuminated fallacies and misunderstandings that have arisen in the public view and education system by supporting his arguments with primary sources. He also explained all of the topics we covered thoroughly and understandably and welcomed questions.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Pay attention in class, take notes, read the textbook, and ask questions. Professor Graney is very good at alleviating confusion. If you do all of that, you will do well in this class.

    | Probably wouldn’t recommend.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    The teacher seemed to grade reasonably and was generally a nice guy. The only issue was that the projects that given by the class seemed kind of unnecessary to understand the information given in the text book. Still, if you are interested in the class, go for it.

    Course highlights:

    The course went in a chronological order, similar to a history course. As time would go on in course, more and more ideas over the structure of the universe would be explored. Examples being where the Earth was the center of the universe to the sun being the center, to the sun orbiting the Earth while the other planets orbited the sun. After the current model for the universe was accepted, the course then moved on to discussing whether live was possible in the universe and how many planets have been analyzed for the possibility of life.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    The professor likes to use scantrons, so be well-read over facts and concepts that each chapter talks about. From my experience, he also asks questions over times and dates, so be prepared to write them down on a studysheet. Also, Graney also allows you to use your studysheet on the test, so write down the essentials and use process of elimination. Good Luck!
