Best 1st year science subject I did by far! Super interesting and well organised content. I felt we were given more than adequate guidance for the final assignment as large chunks of the final lectures were dedicated to what was expected of us. If you take this subject please attend or watch the lectures, though you may be able to pass without doing so the lecturers were amazing and put a lot of effort into making them as engaging as possible. 100% would recommend.

Amazing WAM booster for little effort relative to other subjects. There are 4 quizzes which are quite easy, since they're entirely based on the lectures/slides - you can 100% all of them if you watch the lectures and make some okay notes. There is a 2k essay at the end worth 60% (+/- 200 words) where you get to basically choose your own research question; but the only issue is that you're given very little guidance. However, it's still relatively easy to do well on the essay given you write cohesively and use a lot of evidence. I would definitely recommend if you're looking for a lvl 1 discipline WAM booster which doesn't require a lot of effort.

A great subject to do if you're looking for an easy breadth or filler subject. Would definitely recommend it to fellow second / third years who are looking for an easy level one subject to fill in their timetable with so they can focus on their core subjects. As the subject only involved lectures, no in person attendance was required at any point, nor was it needed to score well (I got a H1 despite not attending a single lecture). The lectures are a little long and hard to stay focused with, but the content is interesting enough, and the quizzes are pretty easy. The essay is open ended so there is a lot of freedom with it, which I personally really liked. It seems like your mark for the essay is pretty dependent on who marks it though. Overall, an easy enough subject, definitely a WAM booster, and it delivers what it promises to.

I loved this subject and ended up scoring well in it (H1). Decent workload and minimal effort required to score well. The major essay was good, however, the expectations were a bit confusing. Overall a great way to boost your WAM while also enjoying the subject.

The content for this subject is really interesting as it covers multiple disciplines. The quizzes are open book and draw from mostly the lecture content and they make up 40% of your grade, so it is easy to do well in this aspect. The other assignment is a 2000 word essay which you have to formulate a question yourself that addresses all the areas of the subject. If you create a good question, plan well and use good academic references it is easy to write and score well on the essay. Although, the essay instructions on the LMS were extremely vague and unhelpful , Celia had to explain the expectations and the concept of formulating a question in the lectures which cleared up the confusion. This is a subject with many readings, but I found them to be not that relevant to the quizzes or my own individual essay, so you can skip these to save time unless you are particularly interested. I found this years LMS was slightly disorganised, there were overlapping videos and content left over from 2021, which was a bit confusing. The lecturers for each sub-topic were always open to discussion and questions at the end of the lecture. There is no exam or tutorials or labs for this subject making the workload extremely manageable. Overall, I highly recommend this subject for those looking for a breadth or a science elective, it is easy to score an H1 and the workload is really light.

Well-organised and informational subject. The ability to analyse a particular human science topic (in my case, pandemics) was made apparent through the interplay of four disciplines — lectures, tasks, and readings were evenly distributed with a similar quality. The quizzes weren’t too difficult but there is a lot of pressure to do well on the essay if you want a good grade. However, there were many opportunities to discuss essay topics and ideas with the lecturers and ultimately, the essay was marked fairly, with understandable explanations for why you received the grade you got.

This was a highly interesting subject that I really enjoyed undertaking. It was well organised and coordinated by Celia, who was more than happy to provide support, run extra Zoom sessions and answer Q&As. It examined pandemics through four disciplines - Ecology, Biomedicine, Psychology and Ecology. The broad nature of each of the topics meant that even if you didn't love one topic, there would definitely be another to strike your interest. I found the multiple choice quizzes to be very fair and straightforward - the lecturers weren't trying to trick you, and just assessed if you'd completed their work. Just make sure to have a set of detailed notes! The final essay appears to be what "makes or breaks" people's performance in this subject. As others have said, the prompt is rather broad and it can feel difficult to know what to write about. However, this worked to my personal advantage as I was able to craft the essay into something I was passionate about, and this made the 2000 words fly by. My biggest advice would be to take your time on the essay - it needs to be well-researched and well-considered for a high mark. If you have an interest in pandemics and would like a light workload (and don't mind a final essay), this subject is for you!

Interesting + easy subject. Fairly easy H1 if you can nail the essay. Content is super, duper easy and the MCQ assessments throughout the semester are extremely fair. Study for them (lectures + associated readings + activities), and you will do well. And make sure you do well, because there is a massive 60% essay at the end. It is marked vaguely (we don't really get given detailed criteria). This is the only reason this subject gets 4 stars, because not only is the essay massive, but we don't get given enough information to do it well. I also didn't get any feedback on the essay when I got it back (the marker basically just said, "good, that's an interesting point, good job!" but gave me a 75??). In sum: make sure you score near perfect on the MCQs and have good essay writing skills. Overall, content is super easy and workload is very, very low.

A very easy subject to get H1 in as long as you watch all the lectures (I didn't do any of the readings and workshops). The topics are very straightforward and easy talking mostly about pandemics, epidemics, and epidemiology. I'm giving it a 3 star however since there is barely any support from the staff team and the major assessment (2000 word essay) is also very vague and there is very little guidance on what we are supposed to write. Overall it's a subject with a very minimal workload, though you should definitely start the essay before swotvac since it does take quite a while to write.
