(This course includes from one to several field trips for which an additional charge will be made to cover transportation.)

However, I attached the most recent syllabus as taught by the professor going on sabbatical.

Fall 2020 the course is scheduled as follows:

Mon, Wed, Fri 12:20-1:10PM (Lecture).

Thur 8:00-9:50AM (Lab)

Pay would be based on 5 hours (5 credits) of weekly classroom teaching.
