Dr. Bennett was an unreal prof, made me want to go to class. Very interesting material too. If you go to lectures the midterm is very easy.

Pretty interesting course - as it effects all of us. The material is easy to grasp, and relative. Bennet is a great prof, he did his best to engage a 8:30 class and made it interesting to come to class. Kuhn is a good prof as well and is really passionate about what he does. Great course, glad I took it as an elective!

profs are very passionate about the course. it is SUPER EASY to do really well in this course if you go to class. Midterms are very much based off them. The research paper is long but can be interesting if you find a good topic.

The prof for the first half is great.. very outgoing, knows what he is talking about and likes to initiate discussion within the class. The midterm was very easy and straightforward.. no surprises. There is a research paper that is a pain, but not too difficult. Go to class, study for the midterm/final and you should be fine.

Very easy to do well in, I would recommend it for any arts students that need a science credit, I believe this counts. The prof that usually teaches it is hilarious and fun, even through long lectures. If you know what global warming is, you will probably pass with flying colours.
