Average Instructor Reviews:
The course is a great way to fulfill distribution requirements and is targeted towards students who do not have lots of background knowledge on the subject. Homework is mostly annotating readings and journal entries on recent natural hazards. Lots of group work and definitely a more relaxed science class.
This course was face paced and and the exams were pretty difficult. The labs were also extremely long and arduous. Overall I did not find the material in this course very interesting at all and would not taker it again if I had the chance.
This is a good course for anyone with a couple other difficult classes. Not a lot of homework and the homework you do get is usually short readings with a couple annotations. In addition, there were 5 journal entries which were basically short review essays on a particular natural hazard event.
